Management implications

Specific measureable objectives

Testable hypothesis
REDUCED CATTLE GRAZING IN SPRING/SUMMER CHINOOK SALMON SPAWNING AND REARING AREAS DOES NOT INCREASE EGG to SMOLT SURVIVAL.

Underlying assumptions or critical constraints
The study can be done, as long as the decadal scale is recognized.

Methods

Brief schedule of activities

Biological need
Large areas of salmon habitat are influenced by livestock grazing, which has significantly changed the riparian and instream structure of streams.

Critical uncertainties

Summary of expected outcome
Expected changes to riparian and instream habitat features and their effects upon the habitat productivity of the stream.

Dependencies/opportunities for cooperation

Risks

Monitoring activity
Photo points, habiat surveys, temperature monitoring, fish use.
