Salmon Spawning Rule Science Advisory Group

Group of 4 salmon

The purpose of the science advisory group is to discuss the scientific literature on the impacts of intragravel dissolved oxygen and fine sediment on salmonid spawning. This group will also discuss the feasibility of implementing different methods used to characterize fine sediment in Washington State waters. 

The Department of Ecology is currently in a rulemaking to consider updates to the surface water quality standards by revising the dissovled oxygen criteria and adding fine sediment criteria.

The tentative dates for the Science Advsory Group are:

  • Oct. 29, 2020 1:15 - 4:15 p.m.
  • Nov. 19, 2020 1:15 - 4:15 p.m.
  • Dec. 9, 2020 1:15 - 4:15 p.m.
  • Feb. 3, 2021 1:15 - 4:15 p.m. 

If you have any questions about the science advisory group, please contact Bryson Finch, at bryson.finch@ecy.wa.gov
