Management implications
Results of study could suggest that sport, commercial and Tribal salmon harvest management policies/practices be changed to allow improved survival of anadromous species, especially listed Snake River stocks. In addition, the results of this study should clearly either support or counter the use of harvest management to improve salmon survival, thereby directing use of available funding to those measures that are truly improving the survival of listed stocks.

Specific measureable objectives
Identify: (1) potential sites for seasonally-appropriate terminal fisheries, including Baker Bay (R.M. 4), Grays Bay (R.M. 22), Multnomah Channel (begins R.M. 86.5), the lower Willamette River, Vancouver Lake, the John Day River (fall chinook), and Willow Creek embayment (R.M. 253). Develop preliminary schemes for species and run timing, egg sources, physical feasibility, avoidance of straying into spawning areas used by unique or listed demes, and potentials for avoiding by-catch of non-target fish.
