Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Compile and analyze information to assess the level of support for alternative hypotheses in PATH a. Identify, assemble and analyze data that are suitable for use in this application, particularly information pertaining to biological effects of hydroelectric development and operation on anadromous fish.
2. Identify alternative hypotheses oand /or model improvementys based on weight of evidence a. Analyze and synthesize information and estimates related to fish passage through the Columbia River hydroelectric complex
. b. Emphasize updating perspectives by using the most recent and robust information at our disposal
3. Improve existing or develop new models for use in regional fiheries management forums. a. Identify opportunites to incorporate updated and improved information into passage models
4. Develop adaptive management experiments to resolve critical assumptions and hypotheses a. Participate in the design of research and monitoing strategies /experiments that can either verify or refute critical model assumptions, or resolve competeing hypotheses that surfaced during PATH analyses
