MERR Plan Structure
  • Councils Broad RME and Reporting
  • Goal
  • Expectations
  • Policy Guidance

6
MERR Plan Structure
  • Broad Guidelines
  • FW Program Management Questions
  • FW Program Biological Objectives
  • Basinwide Prioritization Criteria
  • Basin Research Approach (Appr.)
  • Basin Monitoring Approach
  • Basin Evaluation and Reporting Appr.
  • Basin Data Management Sharing Appr.

7
MERR Plan Structure
  • Broad Guidelines
  • Guide regional development of implementation
    strategies
  • Compatible anadromous, resident fish and
    wildlife strategies
  • Incorporates relevant regional products
    (Skamania workshops)

To be Developed with Region

MERR Plan Structure
  • More focused guided by
  • FW Program
  • Council Research Plan
  • MERR Implementation Framework
  • MERR Implementation Strategies
  • ISRP
  • Council recommendations

Implementation Framework Details
  • What Helps Focus RME Reporting?
  • What Aids with Overall Prioritization
  • Research Approach Focusing Prioritization
  • Monitoring Approach Focusing Prioritization
  • Evaluation and Reporting Approach Programmatic
    Focus
  • Data Management Sharing Requirements Approach
  • Standardized Approach for Implementation
    Strategies

10
What Helps Focus RME Reporting?
  • Approved 9 draft Basinwide Management Questions
  • 2009 Program Biological Objectives organized and
    prioritized
  • 2009 Program Performance Standards

11
Implementation Framework Details
  • What Helps Focus RME Reporting?
  • What Aids with Overall Prioritization
  • Research Approach Focusing Prioritization
  • Monitoring Approach Focusing Prioritization
  • Evaluation and Reporting Approach Programmatic
    Focus
  • Data Management Sharing Requirements Approach
  • Standardized Approach for Implementation
    Strategies

12
What Aids with Overall Prioritization
  • Four Tier Criteria for RME Actions
  • Contribution to Program Progress
  • Feasibility
  • Efficiency
  • Cost Savings
  • Priority Species and Habitat Characteristics
  • Anadromous and Resident Fish (12 species)
  • Bull trout, burbot, kokanee, rainbow trout,
    cutthroat trout, northern pikeminnow, white
    sturgeon, chinook, coho, sockeye, steelhead
  • Wildlife (18 species)
  • Habitat Characteristics (6)

    Strategies

14
Research Approach Focusing Prioritization
  • Research on critical uncertainties
  • Reasonable time-frame
  • Substantial influence on policy decisions
  • Research Plan prioritization guided by
  • Comparative risk assessment
  • Feasibility

16
Monitoring Approach Focusing Prioritization
  • Types of Monitoring
  • Compliance, Implementation, and Performance
  • Status and Trend
  • Action Effectiveness
  • How Much Monitoring
  • Low to High risk
  • less to more monitoring
  • Low or High effort
  • all or project subset

18
Evaluation and Reporting Approach Programmatic
Focus
  • Program Review, Project Review, and Proponent
    Exchange
  • Scientifically sound and credible
  • Apply guidance from MERR
  • ISRP-Project Proponent Exchange
  • Science-Policy Exchange
  • Assist with developing Council policy science and
    technology
  • High Level Indicators Fish and Wildlife
    Indicators
  • Council Report to Congress CBFWAs Status of
    the Resource Report
  • Program Synopsis
  • Factors addressed for priority species and
    habitat characteristics

20
Data Management Sharing Requirements Approach
  • Data and metadata publicly available in an
    electronic format
  • Data needed to report, at a minimum, on
  • Councils High Level Indicators
  • Councils Fish and Wildlife Program Indicators
  • NOAAs Viable Salmonid Parameters
  • Effectiveness for Program actions
  • FCRPS Biological Opinion
  • Specifies minimum reporting criteria guidelines
  • Performance measures (metrics), study design,
    methods, etc

22
Standardized Approach for Implementation
Strategies
  • Anadromous Fish, Resident Fish, and Wildlife
  • Standardized Components
  • Management Questions Indicators
  • Objectives Performance Standards
  • Prioritization Criteria
  • Research Monitoring Needs
  • Priorities, Data Quality, Protocols,
  • Data Management, Sharing and Reporting
  • Developed with regional partners and incorporate
    relevant regional products by 2011
  • e.g., anadromous subframework, 2009 Skamania
    workshops
