Toggle Image Review of the Bay Program by the Science Advisory Group 10/01/1999 (PDF, 49 KB)
Description: The SAG had several comments and recommendations for the IEP, with regard to the Bay Program: I. Fisheries and macroinvertegrate monitoring is extremely important and should be continued; II. Both people and funding resources have been diverted from the Bay program by competing demands for DFG expertise. This diversion of resources has been to the detriment of the program. A renewed commitment to the program is needed. III. The SAG identified 4 goals that have guided the program. These goals should be consulted frequently to make sure that the program is on focus. IV Data collection and enumeration of fishes has dominated the first 20 years of the program and this monitoring must continue, but the program must also evolve with increased resources for analysis and synthesis to explain the mechanisms behind the patterns observed.
