San Pablo and San Francisco bays off Marin’s shores are in better health than in prior years, but are jeopardized by the effects of climate change, according to a new report released this week. The 96-page “State of the Estuary 2015,” a comprehensive health report for the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary by the San Francisco Estuary Partnership, uses data contributed by more than 30 scientists to assess the status of various parts of the ecosystem.
