The Council's 2014 F&W Program is committed to an adaptive management approach that uses research and monitoring data to understand, at multiple scales, how program projects and measures are performing, and to assess the status of focal species and their habitat. This information is evaluated to determine if projects and measures are having the intended measurable benefits to fish, wildlife and their habitat, within the context of their status and trend, which are mitigated, enhanced and protected through the program. This information enables the Council to determine whether or not progress is being made toward program goals and objectives.
The Program's adaptive management approach consists of guidance for:
- February 5, 2018, Existing objectives for 7 fish species

- August 9, 2016, Fish and wildlife staff work session on regional habitat indicator project led by PNAMP, Polson, Montana
