Population and Habitat Monitoring
Trends in salmonid abundance and distribution guide restoration and recovery efforts. The MSG monitors salmonids at different lifecycle stages to assess fish health, life history strategies, and population trends.
Habitat conditions affect the survival and growth of all salmonids at every stage of their lives. The MSG monitors these conditions throughout the watershed by conducting surveys which measure water quality, available habitat, and juvenile fish [distribution and abundance].
