EA-1374: Final Environmental Assessment

Avian Predation on Juvenile Salmonids in the Lower Columbia River Research Project

BPA's underlying need for action is to ensure that regional fish and wildlife managers (the Working Group) have adequate information to assess the impacts of managed and unmanaged bird populations (i.e., terns, cormorants, and gulls) on the survival of juvenile salmonids from the Columbia River Basin, particularly ESA-listed stocks, to help determine effective future management initiatives that will reduce predation impacts.
