Ocean and Plume Workshop
The Council held an ocean and plume workshop on February 14 in Portland, Oregon. See the agenda.
Objectives of the workshop
- Prepare for the upcoming 2013-14 Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program amendment process.
- Discuss 2009 Program references to ocean work, identify priorities for ocean and plume research and reporting and discuss potential updates.
- Integrate ocean and plume science with natural resource management in the Columbia River.
The emphasis of the discussion will be on working to understand how ocean research information can be integrated with management decisions in freshwater.
