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. Complete and publish retrospective analyses for Upper Columbia chinook and steelhead stocks, to support NMFS Biological Opinion in March, 2000, and analyses of stock rebuilding plans proposed by Multi-species Framework. .
1. b. Complete and publish retrospective analyses for Lower Columbia salmon and steelhead stocks, to support NMFS Biological Opinions and analyses of stock rebuilding plans proposed by Multi-species Framework.
2. Advise regulatory agencies on management actions to restore endangered salmon stocks to self-sustaining levels of abundance a. Complete and publish follow-up work related to 1999 decision on Snake River chinook and steelhead.
2. b. Complete and publish prospective and decision analyses for Upper Columbia, working with PUD's and other agencies.
2. c. Complete and publish prospective and decision analyses for Lower Columbia salmon and steelhead stocks.
2. d. Complete and publish prospective and decision analyses for Multi-species Framework.
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. Complete and publish detailed design of experimental management options for Snake River stocks involving hydro, harvest, habitat, and hatchery actions (4 H's), and detailed monitoring and evaluation programs
3. b. Develop candidate experimental management options for Upper Columbia and Lower Columbia stocks, in response to tasks 2b and 2c (evaluate in FY2001).
