Brown Bag - Building a Multi-Stock Population Dynamics Framework for Central Valley Chinook

Wednesday, September 28, 2011 12 noon – 1:00 p.m.
Cal EPA Building 1st Floor, Training Room 1, East and West
1001 “I” Street, Sacramento, CA 95814

The Delta Science Program Brown Bag Series will host the seminar: "Building a Multi-Stock Population Dynamics Framework for Central Valley Chinook.” The seminar by Noble Hendrix and Robert Lessard will discuss life cycle models for winter-run and Butte Creek spring-run Chinook in the Central Valley.

Objectives of the models are to incorporate mortality in all phases of the life cycle, estimate size and composition of populations, evaluate predictors that may explain changes in population and incorporate uncertainty in the estimation procedure by using a Bayesian framework.

Coequal goals

The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)
