Nutria discovered in San Joaquin Valley; CDFW seeks to prevent further spread and infestation.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has become aware of a population of invasive nutria (Myocastor coypus) reproducing within the San Joaquin Valley.

Given the severity of potential impacts and the impacts realized in other infested states, CDFW believes early intervention actions could be successful in eradicating nutria from the area and is asking the public's help in looking for and reporting nutria sightings in order to determine the extent of the infestation.
