1 Summary of Recommendations: Peer Review of FY 13 Science Workplan Trinity River Restoration Program Preliminary Fiscal Year 2013 Science Workplan

2  SAB expressed “overall” endorsement of the peer review findings  SAB expressed common themes across entire TRRP assessments/workplan  External/independent Panel developed recommendations specific to fisheries related monitoring activities and assessments SAB Comments on Peer Review of FY 13 Science Workplan

3  Hypothesis-based conceptual models are missing for all the major subsystems. First priority is to update these, including: geomorphology, fish populations and riparian processes  The workplan does not make the link between the IAP objectives and the proposed program of work sufficiently  The “core” activities of an adaptive management program should be integrated in the TRRP Common Themes

4  Panel could not identify the “core” components of a program-wide adaptive management framework  Current plan development and work proposal system is not sufficient to support the TRRP’s adaptive management needs  Insufficient analysis and interpretation  “basic strengthening of the analysis, interpretation, and adaptive management core of the Program” is needed Common Themes

5  A key component of a programmatic adaptive management framework for the TRRP are predictive models.  Lack of integration and identified linkages among monitoring, analyses, interpretation, and subsequent revised management actions.  There is not sufficient indication that monitoring information has been, or will be used to improve management actions  A programmatic Decision Support System is needed Common Themes

6  “The Program should improve the (workplan) process by requiring proposals to include better documentation, focus on specific IAP objectives, and identify linkages to other workplan activities, using the Peer review guidance to build a science supported management program” SAB Summary

7  “While substantial resources are devoted to analysis of the quantification of habitats created via rehabilitation (Activity 13-4), the most compelling evidence (of progress towards Program goals) should arise from measures of size of the naturally produced runs (Activity 13-5) and resultant outmigrating smolts (Activity 13-6).  Protocols must be developed and tested to accurately measure the natural production of anadromous salmonids Fisheries Specific Findings and Recommendations

8  Sufficient long-term monitoring data (harvest, escapement, juvenile outmigration) exist that a model of anadromous salmonid population dynamics could be developed and incorporated in the AEAM framework. Fisheries Specific Recommendations

9  Are there deficiencies in the overall program of work? 1.Need for a more complete, explicit, and active link among, hypotheses, monitoring, synthesis, interpretation and revision of management plans. 2.Develop a model of anadromous salmonid population dynamics Fisheries Specific Panel Findings

10  Are there projects (activities), or subordinate tasks, that should be elevated or lowered in priority? 1.Activity 13-4 (Fish Habitat) should be integrated with activities 13-3, 13-12, and (Physical assessments) 2.Activity 13-6b (Myxospore monitoring) should be lowered 3.Activity (Fry Density) should have same priority as other salmonid monitoring (Activities 13-4 through 13-6) 4.Essential (core) elements of a comprehensive fish monitoring program were identified Fisheries Specific Panel Findings
