The study reported here was conducted by researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory PNNL, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife ODFW, the University of Washington UW, and the National Marine Fisheries Service NMFS for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District USACE. This research project was initiated in 2007 by the Bonneville Power Administration to investigate critical uncertainties regarding juvenile salmon ecology in shallow tidal freshwater habitats of the lower Columbia River. However, as part of the Washington Memorandum of Agreement, the project was transferred to the USACE in 2010. In transferring from BPA to the USACE, the focus of the tidal freshwater research project shifted from fundamental ecology toward the effectiveness of restoration in the Lower Columbia River and estuary LCRE. The research is conducted within the Action Agencies Columbia Estuary Ecosystem Restoration Program CEERP. Data reported herein spans the time period May 2010 to September 2011.
