Section 7. Abstract


StreamNet seeks to create, maintain, and distribute regionally consistent biological information for use in monitoring Fish and Wildlife Program effectiveness as well as for a wide range of other FWP-related purposes. Data are delivered via the Internet and custom products. StreamNet also provides technical assistance and services to a range of FWP activities and projects. The StreamNet Library maintains original source materials for data in the StreamNet system and provides a full range of library services to Columbia River Basin fish and wildlife scientists, managers, and policy makers. StreamNet is a cooperative venture of the region’s fish and wildlife agencies and tribes and serves as a principal vehicle for coordinating data activities among these organizations. Data development targets critical FWP and related data needs. Data categories include anadromous species production and survival trends, anadromous and resident species distribution and life history, habitat, dams and other facilities, historic river operations, and mitigation projects. In response to ISG and ISRP recommendations, the StreamNet data plan is being revised to include population and genetics, age and sex composition, and additional resident fish and habitat parameters. StreamNet is also intensifying efforts on support services for other FWP activities and projects. Services may include technical support, custom products, and data storage and delivery. Service will specifically target 1) tracking of FWP projects, 2) monitoring and evaluation activities, and 3) watershed, stock assessment, and research projects. Other services will include maintaining project records through the StreamNet Library and increased use of the StreamNet Internet site to deliver FWP-related information.

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Notwithstanding their evaluation, ISRP reviewers suggest that the proposal could have better documented its relationship to PTAGIS and other databases in the basin. One reviewer asks if the data are different than in PTAGIS, or is the effort redundant? The Council appears to be headed toward a very long-term commitment of funds with this project.
