Basinwide Supplementation Evaluation Project: 2017 Annual Progress Report
This report summarizes activities for calendar year 2017 performed as part of the multi-year project organized under the eight project objectives. The primary objective 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 fish populations, and b) productivity trends in new natural populations established through reintroduction of fish of out-of-basin origin (both of hatchery origin or natural origin) in subbasins where the indigenous population had been extirpated.
