Basinwide Supplementation Evaluation Project: 2016 Annual Progress Report
This report summarizes activities for the 2016 calendar year performed as part of the multi-year project organized under the eight project objectives. The primary focus of the Project involves monitoring and evaluation of tribal hatchery programs to assess: a) critical uncertainties related to effects of hatchery supplementation on productivity of depressed natural anadromous salmon populations, and b) productivity trends in new natural populations established through reintroduction of fish of out-of-basin hatchery origin in subbasins where the indigenous population had been extirpated.
