Reasonable and Prudent Alternatives (RPAs)

Sponsor-Reported Relevant RPAs

Sponsor listed no RPAs for this project proposal

Relevant RPAs based upon NMFS & BPA Review

NMFS and BPA did not associate any reasonable and prudent alternatives with this project proposal


Biological Outcomes of this project: 1) Identify if fish predators - primarily hake and mackerel, are important predators of juvenile salmonids off the mouth of the Columbia River. 2) Identify if the abundance and distribution of forage and predatory fishes off the mouth of the Columbia River during the spring outmigration influences salmonid ocean survival. 3) Identify if the annual and temporal fluctuations in abundance of predators and forage fish off the mouth of the Columbia River influences salmonid ocean survival.
Biological Data: 1) Abundance and distribution of predators and forage fish off the mouth of the Columbia River from late April through June. 2) Food habit/fish stomach information from large fish predators collected off the mouth of the Columbia River. 3) Salmon ocean survival measures - OPI and OCN index and smolt to adult survival estimates from various hatcheries.
