This is no small endeavor. Formal planning started in 2012, research began in 2014, and we expect the research to go through 2018 when we will be translating the results of the research into management actions. Today, over 150 scientists and technicians from federal, state, tribal, academic, and nonprofit institutions are in the field and in laboratories assessing the condition of juvenile Chinook, coho and steelhead and their marine environment.

The task teams meet often, technical teams periodically throughout the year, and workgroups once to twice yearly. Steering committees convene quarterly. A workshop for the greater community will be held in the final year to disseminate project results and make recommendations for management actions.
Constant communications and initial data sharing among the various participants are maintained via an online project management utility. This includes within-activity communications and data management, and sharing research plans, protocols, and results among activities to continuously align work. This also includes a communications and media resources center for participants to utilize. Comprehensive data management tools are also being developed to provide a lasting infrastructure for monitoring and analysis.
