Short Description Provide scientific input to the PATH process to help assess juvenile passage models/life cycle models to provide an understanding of the hypotheses of the models & probability that these models provide expected increases in salmon stocks.
Target Species Spring/summer spring chinook salmon, fall chinook salmon, and steelhead stocks in the Columbia River Basin upstream of Bonneville Dam and listed under the Endangered Species Act.

Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Provide scientific input to PATH so that documents that include analyses on model outputs and expectations of increases in stock sizes based on changes in hydropower, harvest, hatcheries, and habitat are useful to the region. a. Participate in PATH-related technical meetings (work group sessions) and workshops. Forums cover topic matters involving mainstem fish passage issues and ecological processes affecting salmon stocks within the Snake/Columbia Basin
. b. Review/critique technical materials produced by other members of PATH process. Products and analyses from the Harvest, Habitat, and Hatchery groups, as well as the Hydro group will be included in this activity.
. c. Assess the relevance of empirical evidence in evaluating management actions being considered as recovery strategies.

Section 7. Abstract


Scientific input into the PATH assists in the development of identifying and assessing key alternative hypotheses relating to the Columbia River salmon ecosystem. The Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC) scientists provide empirical data for use in modeling exercises and provide critiques on use of all data and processes used in the modeling that leads toward recommendations about the utility of modifying harvest, habitat, hatcheries, and hydropower as means to recover stocks of anadromous fish in the Columbia River Basin listed as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act.
