Project ID: WA2014_30
Lead Investigator: Tim Troll, Bristol Bay Heritage Land Trust
Collaborators: Sue Flensburg, BBNA; Sue Mauger, Cook Inletkeeper
Project Duration: 2014 - 2015 (Phase 1); 2015 - 2018 (Phase 2)
temperature is one of the most significant factors in the health of stream
ecosystems. Temperature plays a critical role in salmonid reproduction and
survivorship and is an essential indicator for monitoring the health of Bristol
Bay salmon habitats, which support vital subsistence, commercial and sport
fisheries. The objectives of this project are to develop an Implementation
Strategy (Phase 1) and to launch (Phase 2) a voluntary participation water temperature monitoring network for
Bristol Bay; expand the annual Water Quality/QAPP Recertification training for
local monitors to include standardized water temperature monitoring protocols;
initiate temperature monitoring in select drainages; and seek long-term funding
for a comprehensive regional monitoring program.
