Implementation of the recovery plan for SRKWs Section 7 consultations: Looking at Federal actions (funding, permiting, regulating) that might affect hydropower (hatchery production), water treatment plants, sewer outfalls, in-water construction, upland projects, habitat restoration, research, tidal and wave energy, etc. Recovery plan implementation: started in 2003 really with funding before plan was final (research, enforcement [...]
Andrea Copping, Chief Leah George-Wilson, Richard Beamish, Mary Ruckelshaus, Joel Baker Richard Beamish: State of the Salish Sea (Richard Beamish) Warming trends over last 30yrs in Strait of Georgia [SoG] (steady) and Puget Sound (slower) Decline in % early marine survival of Coho from 15% down to 1% since 1996 (entrance to SoG through Sept [...]
Last weekend was the beginning of blackmouth season in Marine Area 7 (the San Juan Archipelago and vicinity). I’ve been wondering if WDFW should encourage fishing for Puget Sound resident Chinook as there are some indications that resident Chinook are loading up J pod with persistent pollutants, while decreasing fishing pressure on Fraser River Chinook [...]
This just in from salmonuniversity.com: Forecasts are great for the Queen Charlotte’s and the Nushagak in 2009 Canadian Fisheries claims the water temperature is the coldest in 11 years and the ocean conditions are perfect for setting up huge runs of returning Chinook and Coho for 2009. In 2005 the Nushagak had over 300k returning [...]
It appears this may only be for recipients of Salmon Recovery Board funds, but one goal of this site is help orca recovery advocates to understand and get involved with salmon recovery efforts. So, here ya go: clipped from www.rco.wa.gov Building Better Projects – Salmon Habitat Conference April 15-16, 2009 Little Creek Conference Center, Shelton [...]
First I’ve heard of this, but the idea of damming the Hamathko seems sacrilegious. The heads of those distant inlets and fjords are deep wilderness in my mind, gateways to the fantastic icefields of Mount Waddington and beyond. Is there really a need for hydropower up there?! I assert that solar, tidal, and/or wind turbines [...]
Long Live the Kings announced in Dec 2008 an effort to implement internal changes at WDFW to manage salmon in an “All-H” framework — one that integrates decisions about Hatcheries, Harvest, and Habitat. Perhaps this is a step towards the “Ecosystem Based Management” which no one can define for me, but is already a buzz [...]
It will be fascinating to see how this money is actually spent. The article mentions using part of the $30M to retire licenses from commercial troll fishers. I’m guessing the $15M ($7.5M from Canada and the same from the U.S.) will be helping to replenish the PSC portfolio. This could mean renewed funding in 2010 [...]
The clipping below is from a Daily Astorian article on an EPA report regarding global warming’s potential influence on Northwest salmon. Of most import for killer whale conservationists are the implications of what James Martin calls a “perfect storm” for salmon: low snow pack with low, warm flows in the summer. Martin provides a nice [...]
This is a pretty general treatment of endangered species with a nice from-the-field synopsis of prey/fecal sampling by KUOW intern Irene Naguchi, but it didn’t deliver what I expected — new information derived from the fecal sampling. The main news I caught from Brad was that they, Ken, and Mark haven’t noted any new calves [...]
