On September 1st AIS was awarded a Task Order through our NOAA Fisheries ProTech contract to provide Scientific Support Services to NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center’s Fish Ecology Division in Seattle, WA. The Task Order period of performance consists of one base year and four option years. Through this contract personnel will provide biological support to NOAA programmers to ensure the utility of models for the fisheries communities. Staff will collect and analyze habitat monitoring data to assist in developing salmon life cycle models for restoration planning. The team will also investigate influences on Columbia River salmon migration and survival. We are pleased to announce that we have teamed with Ocean Associates Inc. to perform this work.
