Edition: [March 2013 ed.].
Publisher: [Anchorage] : [Alaska Energy Authority], [2013]
Report Numbers: SuWa 17
Physical Description: xiv, 140, [307] p. : col. ill., col. maps, col. charts, forms ; 28 cm.
Series: Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project document ; no. 17.
Subject - Topical:
Summary: The implementation plan includes (1) a summary of relevant fisheries studies in the Susitna River, (2) an overview of the life-history needs for fish species known to occur in the Susitna River, (3) a review of the preliminary results of habitat characterization and mapping efforts, (4) a description of site selection and sampling protocols, (5) development of field data collection forms, and (6) development of database templates that comply with 2012 AEA QA/QC procedures. The implementation plan includes the level of detail sufficient to instruct field crews in data collection efforts. In addition, the plan includes protocols and a guide to the decision making process in the form of a chart or decision tree that will be used in the field, specific of sampling locations, details about the choice and use of sampling techniques and apparatuses, and a list of field equipment needed. The implementation plan addresses how sampling events will be randomized to evaluate precision by habitat and gear type. The implementation plan also helps ensure that fish collection efforts occur in a consistent and repeatable fashion across field crews and river segments.
