Project history

Biological results achieved

Annual reports and technical papers

Management implications

Specific measureable objectives

Testable hypothesis
Survival from egg to smolt stage does not vary over a range of environmental conditions and densities of spawners.

Underlying assumptions or critical constraints
Parr to smolt survival in rearing areas can be accurately estimated even though they move out of initial rearing areas to other downstream overwintering habitat.


Brief schedule of activities

Biological need

Critical uncertainties

Summary of expected outcome
Changes in survival rates as spawner to smolt ratios change and as habitat conditions change.

Dependencies/opportunities for cooperation


Monitoring activity
Tagging of juvenile fish which will be monitored through trapping, direct observation and enumeration at dams.
