Project Description:

This project will gather data from annual surveys that focus on three life cycle stages to produce an integrated view of the wild salmon population of Auburn Ravine:
1. Number of adult salmon entering Auburn Ravine documented by our stationary Salmon Cam video system.
2. Spawning success documented by video of juvenile salmon captured on portable underwater video cameras.
3. Survival from egg to adult as documented by DNA samples taken from carcasses of adult salmon.
This integrated view will support prescription of specific actions to protect and enhance the wild salmon of Auburn Ravine.
