1 The Collaborative, Systemwide Monitoring and Evaluation Project (CSMEP) and StreamNet NW Power & Conservation Council, Sept. 20, 2006
2 Outline CSMEP vision, objectives, work products How StreamNet has helped so far Future help required from StreamNet in fy07-09 What performance measures matter to whom?
3 CSMEP Vision A coordinated effort to collaboratively improve the quality and consistency of fish monitoring data, and the methods used to evaluate these data, to answer key questions relevant to major decisions in the Columbia Basin.
4 PNAMP Pacific NW Aquatic Monitoring Partnership Federal Caucus RME Program Washington Salmon Recovery Fund Monitoring Program Oregon Water Enhancement Board Monitoring Program NPPC and BPA Columbia Basin F&W Program NOAA Pacific Coast Salmon Recovery Fund Program EPA National and State Level Monitoring Programs USFS and BLM Monitoring Programs CSMEP California NW Forest Plan Monitoring Program Tribal Monitoring Programs BOR Habitat Monitoring Program UC, JD, Salmon River, and Columbia Estuary Pilot Projects; IMWs Lower Columbia River Estuary Program USFWS Bull Trout RMEG Program Watershed Condition and Fish Monitoring Protocols Test Projects
5 Coordination with PNAMP Circulate and coordinate work plans Have overlapping membership Develop consistent goals and objectives, but distinctive work products Different RME initiatives by area and type Conduct joint workshops
6 CSMEP Objectives Serve M&E needs of federal, state, tribal, intergovernmental entities Inventory, assess and make available existing fish monitoring data Design improved M&E methods Implement and evaluate pilot M&E approaches Work towards consistent, reliable systemwide M&E
7 Status of Fish and Wildlife StreamNet CSMEP o Existing Data o Monitoring Gaps Data Management Priorities, Decisions RM&E Options
8 CSMEP/StreamNet work products example clients Metadata on fish monitoring (StreamNet critical) – federal, state, tribal entities that monitor fish Evaluations of data, & alternative M&E designs for: –Status & Trend ( NOAA, TRT, BiOp Remand RME) –Harvest ( TAC, U.S. v. OR harvest managers) –Hydro ( U.S. Army Corps, BiOp Remand, AFEP) –Habitat ( Lemhi pilot project; restoration managers) –Hatchery ( Ad Hoc Supplementation Group, ISRP) StreamNet funding is very important for many CSMEP tasks in fy07-09 (see handout)
10 Metadata are web accessible https://nrimp.dfw.state.or.us/csmep/
11 You can extract metadata for key PMs Hyperlink?
12 StreamNet Inventories feed CSMEP data assessments (on CSMEP website)
13 StreamNet is critical for adapting M&E designs & tools from Snake to other Basins
14 Pilot StreamNet Data Inventories BASINCLIENTSBASINCLIENTS Data evaluations, M&E designs for Snake Basin Pilot General M&E design guidelines, tools Region-specific M&E designs Future StreamNet Data Inventories & Databases Implementation in multiple regions
15 What performance measures are important? See backside of handout For each VSP criterion: –What performance measures matter, to whom? –At what scale they should be measured? –At what scale do they need to be applied for decisions? –How can monitoring efficiently serve multiple functions?
16 Summary of Database Management Needs (from OR participants in CSMEP) Provide pointers to existing datasets, facilitate use by a regional audience [Meta data catalogs – hyperlinked] Provide independent QA/QC on captured data. [Needs Input from regional managers outside StreamNet] Provide guidance for data structure, protocols, metrics, etc. to improve local datasets, optimize use in regional forums. Provide up to date documentation of data including empirical data and secondary or derived data from analysis
