Klamath Mountain Province Steelhead Project
A National Marine Fisheries Service status review concluded that KMP steelhead were threatened with extinction. In contrast, an ODFW evaluation concluded that summer steelhead (STS) populations were depressed, but the winter steelhead (STW) populations were healthy. Subsequent discussions lead to a deferral of the proposed ESA listing. Oregon agreed to terminate STW harvest in KMP streams (except the Rogue River Basin remained open) and to improve population assessments. Oregon also committed to development of population health goals for steelhead (first attempted for KMP steelhead).
The Salmonid Habitat project objectives were to develop models to predict the freshwater habitat limiting factors for juvenile salmonids in Oregon coastal basins and evaluate the effectiveness of habitat improvement projects to increase the production of wild salmonid smolts.
Salmon Conservation Strategies -- Pacific Rim Project
The goal of the Salmon Conservation Strategies Project is to develop tools for evaluating conservation alternatives for Pacific salmon and their ecosystems. The general approach involves the use of a Geographic Information Sy stem to integrate existing data on the (1)distribution and status of Pacific salmonid stocks throughout their range; (2) terrestrial and freshwater landscapes that support salmonid freshwater existence; (3) oceanic ecosystems that support salmonid adult p opulations; (4) atmospheric systems that shape climatic patterns of salmonid habitats; and (5) social and political systems that regulate, influence and consume these resources.
