Long-term planning for design, implementation and maintenance of in-stream detection systems Chris Jordan, NOAA-NWFSC – moderator & A panel of experts who actually know what they are talking about
Discussion Panel Gabriel Brooks – NOAA/NWFSC Rick Orme, Jason Vogel – Nez Perce Tribe John Arterburn – Colville Tribes Andrew Murdoch – WDFW Derrek Faber – ODFW Chris Beasley – QCI Pat Connolly - USGS
Why are we here? The 2008 FCRPS BiOp and the Fish and Wildlife Program have language directing the region to develop marking/tagging plans to better coordinate tagging options region-wide. FCRPS Hydro RME Workgroup tried to consolidate and address many of the PIT tag- based RPAs by producing the PIT status and needs document. In laying out a road map to get the assessments and evaluations described and the status and needs done, the issue of aging PIT tag detectors came up...
Discussion Topics (a start) Do we need to coordinate on the installation and maintenance of in-stream sites? Do we need to coordinate on locating new in-stream sites, or on replacing or relocating current in-stream sites as they wear out? Previously, a group met on the topic of in-stream site descriptions / metadata – is that work complete? What is limiting the most effective use of PIT tag data in the tributary environment – detection or analysis?
