The purpose of the project was to continue support for a comprehensive inventory of barriers to anadromous fish passage and to aid in providing upstream habitat for anadromous fish.

Accomplishments by Task: Administer the Passage Assessment Database (PAD) including data and project updates and compilation of new fish passage data. A total of 14,959 records were added or updated in the PAD. Reviewed and updated the lists of fish passage assessment needs on the California highway system in Caltrans Districts 2, 6, 7, 10, and 11. Reviewed NOAA?s 2014 SONCC and 2012 CCC coho recovery plans, diversions where listed as known barriers (partial or total), unknowns and fish traps). Populated the fish barrier table in the PAD. Compared passage statuses in the fishbarrier and main PadPassage table of the PAD (~400 records) and updated several passage statuses. Created a PAD QAQC plan. Numerous other reviews and update were made to PAD and records were updated accordingly.

Project Benefit    

The specific benefits of this Project are to ensure that the data used for planning and prioritizing fish passage projects are current, comprehensive and quality controlled; support barrier prioritization and optimization efforts; ensure continuing public access to fish passage and related data (PAD, etc.); and identify areas lacking fish passage surveys.
