Habitat Measures

The FCRPS Reasonable and Prudent Alternative includes an aggressive program of actions to improve tributary habitat limiting factors and attain population survival improvement targets. Tributary habitat actions are typically geared to improving spawning and rearing habitat, providing habitat access, and enhancing in-stream flows.

Estuary habitat actions are also being implemented with a goal of improving survival for all populations. Estuary actions include protecting and restoring riparian and off-channel habitat, reconnecting flood plains, increasing fish access to productive habitat, and reducing predation.
