Basinwide Supplementation Evaluation Project: 2012 Annual Progress Report
Work elements for contract year #4 (May 1, 2012 to April 30, 2013) of the multi-year Basinwide Supplementation Evaluation project organized under seven project objectives. The primary focus of the Project involved Hatchery RM&E, specifically financing of molecular genetic analyses to assess critical uncertainties related to effects of hatchery supplementation on productivity of depressed natural salmon populations, as well as of stocks that have been reintroduced following extirpation of the native populations.
