Evaluation and proposed refinement of the sampling design for the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program's fish component


Publication Date


Environmental monitoring programs are frequently designed to track changes in key physical, chemical, and biological features of an ecosystem. As such, these programs provide critical information for detecting changes in system state, investigating ecological relations, and making resource management decisions. However, monitoring programs require significant investments of time, money, and human resources to implement and maintain. Periodic evaluations are necessary to assess whether the sampling design adequately addresses program goals and objectives, and whether adequate and useful information can continue to be provided for changing management and science needs. We evaluated the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP) sampling [...]
