Salmonid Life Cycle Monitoring Project
In 1998, as part of the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) began monitoring survival and downstream migration of salmonid fishes (Oncorhynchus spp.) in coastal basins. As a part of this program the Salmonid Life Cycle Monitoring Project (LCM Project) developed three objectives: 1) estimate abundance of adult salmonids and downstream migrating juvenile salmonids, 2) estimate marine and freshwater survival rates for coho salmon (O. kisutch) and 3) evaluate effects of habitat modification on the abundance of juvenile salmonids.
