Title: A review of protocols for monitoring streams and juvenile fish in forested regions of the Pacific Northwest.

Author: Stolnack, Scott A.; Bryant, Mason D.; Wissmar, Robert C.

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: This document reviews existing and proposed protocols used to monitor stream ecosystem conditions and responses to land management activities in the Pacific Northwest. Because of recent work aimed at improving the utility of habitat survey and fish abundance assessment methods, this review focuses on current (since 1993) monitoring efforts that assess stream habitat conditions and juvenile fish use. It does not focus on protocols specifically intended to monitor trends in fish populations for salmon recovery efforts, other fish life-history stages (e.g., salmonid smolt monitoring or spawner surveys), or approaches designed to monitor water quality or sources of pollution. We provide an overview of agency monitoring protocols, adaptive management, and types of monitoring, and briefly review the core habitat characteristics thought to be most sensitive to forest management practices. Finally, we summarize a selection of protocols in use in the Pacific Northwest in light of those core habitat characteristics.

Keywords: Monitoring, aquatic habitat, riparian ecosystems, adaptive management, forest practices
