Section 6: Biological Objectives
Biological Objectives of this Proposed Project
Biological Objective Full Description Associated Subbasin Plan Strategy Page Nos
Increase survival of migrating salmonids The biological objective of the project is to increase survival of migrants by ensuring adequate passage conditions exist for both upstream and downstream migration by monitoring river conditions and passage facility operations. The project also provides technical review and input on passage facilities and coordinates the overall passage program through development of the Annual Operation Plan.
