USGS Fort Collins Science Center scientists will again visit Orono, Maine, on October 10-11 for a follow-up workshop on SALMOD, a model originally developed for use with declining Pacific salmon. The model will be tested for its applicability in addressing freshwater habitat issues for the endangered Atlantic salmon in Maine. In this case, the model will use specific physical data and biological parameters to mimic production of wild and stocked Atlantic salmon in Maine's Narraguagus River. The workshop objective is to provide hands-on training with SALMOD using data sets from the Narraguagus River collected by various agencies. Maine Atlantic Salmon Commission, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration personnel will attend.
