|Salmonid Habitat Project
1.) Develop models to predict the freshwater habitat limiting factors for
juvenile salmonids in Oregon coastal basins.
2.) Evaluate the effectiveness of habitat improvement projects to increase
the production of wild salmonid smolts.
Results from this work will be used by habitat managers and land use planners
to determine if habitat improvement projects are an appropriate method to use in
an attempt to increase production of wild salmonid smolts and to identify
critical habitat components that are in shortest supply. Proper use of these
models will help insure that the money spent on habitat improvement projects
will result in increased wild fish production.
