ODFW Coastal Juvenile Coho Survey Site Summary 1998-04

Abstract -- These are summary data of snorkeling and electrofishing surveys as part of the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) began a project in 1998 to monitor juvenile coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) in Oregon coastal streams. Sites are randomly selected using Environmental Mapping and Assessment Program (EMAP) protocol (Stevens and Olsen 1999). The EMAP site selection process is used to insure a spatially balanced and unbiased selection of sample sites in stream reaches for each monitoring area. . Purpose -- The project is designed to monitor current status and long-term trends in abundance of juvenile coho in five coastal Gene Conservation Areas.
