• FCRPS BiOp Progess Reports and Implementation Plans
     

    The federal action agencies carry out a wide range of Reasonable and Prudent Actions (RPAs) that the BiOp specifies. Implementation is based on:

     

    • Performance: the agencies rely on the best available scientific information to identify and carry out actions that are expected to provide immediate and long-term benefits to ESA-listed fish.

     

    • Accountability for results: the agencies use implementation planning and progress reporting to inform and signal appropriate adaptations or adjustments to their actions.

     

    • Adaptive management: the agencies assess the effectiveness of actions taken and modify future actions based on the new information.

     

    The RPAs take a comprehensive approach, providing listed fish with healthier places to spawn and grow as well as a safer migration path to and from the ocean. An approach that relies on hydropower operations alone will not recover the species. Many other factors have contributed to the salmon's decline, including overharvest, hatchery practices, degraded habitat, increased predators and unfavorable ocean conditions.
