​​​Implementation of the Strategy to Establishment a Voluntary Water Temperature Monitoring Network in the Kodiak Archipelago, Alaska

Project Summary


​Project ID: WA2014_31
Lead Investigator: Bill Pyle, USFWS
Collaborators: Alaska Department of Fish & Game, Kodiak Regional Aquaculture Association, Sun'aq Tribe
Project Duration: 2014- 2018

Streams, rivers, and lakes of the Kodiak Archipelago, Alaska, provide essential spawning and rearing habitat for millions of Pacific salmon collectively regarded as a foundation of the regional ecosystem and economy.  Climate projections for the archipelago indicate probable increases in annual and seasonal air temperature over the next 85 years.  Corresponding increases in the temperature of freshwaters also are expected, which may adversely influence the biology of salmon, the quality of salmon habitat, and the availability of salmon to support the ecosystem and economy.  It is essential that salmon managers be provided with relevant and reliable information on expected changes in thermal regimes and their influence on salmon and their habitat.  The first phase of this project produced a coordinated strategy for collaborative acquisition of time-series water temperature data for the Kodiak Archipelago to facilitate understanding and prediction of salmon-habitat interactions.  In this second phase, the partners are now working to implement the strategies developed by Kodiak and other networks to facilitate understanding and prediction of salmon-habitat interactions at a regional scale.​
