Adaptive Management Work Group

  • Sorting sockeye for spawning.

Two key groups guide the Adaptive Management Program (AMP), the Adaptive Management Work Group (AMWG) and the Technical Work Group (TWG). Public input on decisions and access to information is considered an important focus of the program.

The AMWG is composed of agency representatives and stakeholders with an interest in the Cedar River Sockeye Hatchery Program. AMWG makes recommendations to the Landsburg Mitigation Parties regarding hatchery operation and AMP decisions. The purpose of the AMWG is to use monitoring and research, supported by the TWG, to best achieve the objectives of the AMP (pdf).
