Project history
The Yakima/Klickitat Fisheries Project is using a process of adaptive management, which specifies an ongoing, iterative approach to planning and implementation of the project in order to protect the basin's fishery resources from unforeseen, adverse project impacts. Adaptive management emphasizes experimental intervention. The effects of management actions will be monitored and evaluated through Project 95-63 (Yakima/Klickitat Monitoring and Evaluation Program), and programs, procedures, and facilities may all be modified in response to these findings. Project 95-62 (Yakima/Klickitat Adaptive Managemen) will provide funding for these modifications. This project incorporates the type of work contemplated under planning-level Project 90-72, which was deleted from the database in 1996.
