Abstract or Summary
  • In the Pacific Northwest of the United States, hundreds of millions of dollars are spent annually to restore upland stream habitat for salmon populations listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Despite this sizable financial commitment to salmon population recovery, in practice, the restoration projects selected for implementation are often misaligned with the biological needs of endangered salmon populations. While this disconnect is partially attributable to socio-political factors, it is important that policy makers have actionable information on the relative effectiveness of candidate restoration projects. This study utilizes spatially explicit biological models and historical cost data to assess the cost effectiveness of alternative Spring Chinook habitat restoration projects in the Wenatchee River basin in Washington, USA. The biological response achieved with a fixed restoration budget varies significantly across restoration locations and activities, underscoring the importance of comparing restoration alternatives that are spatially explicit and associated with specific restoration actions. Prioritizing restoration alternatives in this framework represents a first step towards aligning restoration activities with the goals of the ESA.
