Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Determine the overall level of support for key alternative hypotheses, and propose other hypotheses and/or model improvements that are more consistent with existing data. a. Update and finalize retrospective analyses for spring/summer chinook, fall chinook, and steelhead. Publish selected spring/summer retrospective analyses.
. b. Summarize conclusions of retropective analyses for fall chinook and steelhead in peer-reviewed conclusions documents
2. Advise regulatory agencies on management actions to restore endangered salmon stocks to self-sustaining levels of abundance a. Complete prospective analyses for steelhead, largely by comparison with spring/summer chinook.
. b. Update preliminary prospective/decision analyses for spring/summer and fall chinook
. c. Integrate findings of prospective/decision analyses of spring/summer chinook, fall chinook, and steelhead into overall evaluation of alternative management options.
3. Assess the ability to distinguish among competing hypotheses from future information, and advise agencies on research, monitoring, and adaptive management experiments that would maximize learning a. Explore feasible range of experimental management options.
. b. Use overall decision analysis framework (integrated across species) to evaluate research, monitoring, and adaptive management experiments.
