"The All-H Hatchery Analyzer (AHA): A New Tool for
Science-Based Decision-Making about Hatcheries"
Speakers: Paul Seidel and Andy Appleby, WDFW

Reforming hatchery practices requires a watershed-based approach to
management of anadromous salmonids, one that takes into account all the
factors that affect a species (the "H's" of habitat, harvest and hatcheries). Recognizing this, the state and tribal co-managers of Washington's salmon and steelhead asked the Hatchery Scientific Review Group (HSRG) to work with them to develop tools for managing hatcheries in this new context. Technical discussions in 2004 with Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission (NWIFC) scientists resulted in one such tool: the "All-H Hatchery Analyzer" (AHA). This presentation will use steelhead case studies to demonstrate how AHA helps inform decision-making. Paul Seidel represents WDFW on the HSRG; Andy Appleby has taken the lead in using AHA to evaluate WDFW's hatchery programs.
