(Word Doc / Zip File)

- Released August 21 2020; (45MB)

Thank you for your interest in the Klamath Basin Integrated Fishery Restoration and Monitoring Plan.

The Draft Plan is focused on the strategic restoration of watershed processes and habitat supporting focal fish species of interest in the Basin, listing specific candidate restoration activities for each major sub-basin and the Klamath as a whole. These activities that have been compiled through review of prior plans as well as broad representative input from a diverse group of participants and organizations with an interest in the Klamath Basin though a series of interviews, meetings, and workshops spanning 2017 through 2020.

The last iteration of the Draft Plan produced during Phase 2 of work was released June 16 2019, and reviewed between June 17 2019 to July 8 2019. Notably, this prior version of the plan listed candidate activities without providing any information on relative benefit, importance, or suggested sequencing of these activities.

The current version of the Draft Plan produced during Phase 3 of work and released August 21 2020 includes revisions to previously included activities, new activities, and a first-pass prioritization of activities for each sub-basin derived by populating an interactive Klamath IFRMP Prioritization Restoration Tool over the course of multiple collaborative work sessions with Sub-Basin Working Groups.
