The Salmon Recovery Funding Board (SRFB) was established in 1999 to fund salmon habitat restoration and protection projects and related activities. Starting in 2000, the SRFB established policies authorizing the types of projects eligible for funding and an evaluation process for selecting projects. The SRFB, in their Policies and Guidelines, identified implementation, effectiveness, and validation monitoring as key components of their adaptive management model.
This document is intended to address elements of Washington’s Comprehensive Monitoring Strategy (CMS), and it provides:
- Overall SRFB effectiveness and validation monitoring strategy;
- Prioritized monitoring by type and category;
- Estimated costs over the next ten years; and
- SRFB-NOAA Fisheries-OWEB-BPA agreed upon reporting metrics.
