Section 7. Abstract


This project identifies, quantifies and evaluates two critical but little-studied components of anadromous fish spawning and rearing habitat in the Methow watershed: resident fish and benthic macroinvertebrates. The goals of the project are 1) To clarify the ecological relationship between anadromous and resident fish and macroinvertebrates; 2) To create baseline data on the current status of resident fish and macroinvertebrates in the basin; and 3) To enhance management of biological diversity in the watershed . Objectives are 1) An inventory of presence, relative abundance and distribution of resident fish and macoinvertebrates in the watershed; 2) Observation of anadromous/resident fish interactions, niche preference and niche exclusion; and 3) Presentation of data and recommendations to responsible agencies on management needs of resident fish. All field work is based on currently accepted protocols. The project will begin in May, 1999; the final report will be completed by the end of December, 2000. Objectives are quantifiable and will face an in-house review and evaluation process. The project improves the ability to manage both anadromous and resident fish by clarifying current fish species configuration and habitat utilization and creating a baseline inventory for monitoring change over time.
