Modeling the effects of increased turbidity on growth rates of juvenile salmonids

No models exist for quantitatively estimating the impact of chronic or episodic increases in turbidity on juvenile salmon growth rates. To provide a credible basis for quantifying the impacts of increased turbidity, and to provide a tool for developing monitoring and assessment guidelines for forestry impacts on stream turbidity, we will develop a model for predicting the effects of chronic and episodic turbidity on growth rates of stream-dwelling salmonids.
