Data for the Science TAC

The Science TAC is a small working group of local biologists and outside the basin experts with knowledge and familiarity of focal species utilization within the specific stream system. The Science TAC performs the initial evaluation of spatial data layers to interpret how fish are using specific river reaches, identify the primary limiting factors by reach, and recommend restoration activity types that have the greatest ability to address those key limiting factors. The Science TAC member composition is focused on the fisheries biologist discipline with representation from the fields of restoration practitioners, researchers and monitoring coordinators. Team composition represents a tactical decision in grounding the process on the biological needs of the fish species and defining the habitat and activity types that can best address the key limiting factors affecting those species. Outcomes from the Science TAC effort include the specific reaches, limiting factors and habitat action types that will be utilized by geomorphologists and engineers in the project opportunity and identification phase of Atlas preparation.
