FISH AND GAME BAY-DELTA DIVISION ASSIGNED NEW CHIEF

 SACRAMENTO, Calif., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Perry L. Herrgesell, Ph.D., a career fish and wildlife manager with the Department of Fish and Game for nearly two decades, has been appointed head of the department's Bay-Delta Division in Stockton.
 Herrgesell's assignment is effective immediately and places him in charge of numerous Fish and Game programs focused on California's sensitive Delta region.
 Since the retirement last summer of former Bay-Delta chief Pete Chadwick, Herrgesell has filled the vacancy on an acting basis. His appointment was announced today by Department of Fish and Game Director Boyd Gibbons.
 "I enthusiastically appoint Perry to the Bay-Delta Division. He has worked his way up the DFG career ladder and knows the Delta issues as well as anyone in the department. I look forward to working with him in this capacity," said Gibbons.
 Recruited by the department as an associate water quality biologist in 1974, Hes?ell's academic credentials include a 1976 doctorate in ecology from the University of California, Davis, and a master of arts degree in biology from Fresno State College in 1971.
 In 1979, he joined the department's Bay-Delta unit where he supervised the Delta Outflow San Francisco Bay Study, planning and directing a multi-agency, multi-discipline effort documenting Delta freshwater outflow requirements of the Bay.
 From 1982-1986, Herrgesell served as editor-in-chief of the California Fish and Game Quarterly, the Department's respected research journal. A published author, Herrgesell has collaborated on a number of scientific articles, many of which study the effects of estuary outflows on fishlife and pesticide contamination of freshwater streams in California.
 As head of Bay-Delta, Herrgesell's duties include assessing Central Valley Project and State Water Project impacts on fish and wildlife in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Estuary, mitigating adverse environmental effects, and developing baseline biological data on selected fisheries, especially striped bass and sturgeon in Delta waters.
 Herrgesell and his wife, Susan, live in Galt. His wife works as an analyst in the Department of Fish and Game's Project WILD program.
