The chief objective of this paper is to provide a literature review of the role temperature exerts on the physiology of various salmonids. The fish are affected as species and within the stage of their life history. The thermal environment, perhaps more than any other aquatic habitat feature, influences the distribution, health and survival of our native salmonids. Temperature tolerances for salmonid species typically refer to effects of temperature on an individual. Because we are interested in sustainable populations of salmonids, this paper also reviews information on the optimal or preferred ranges of temperatures that will be needed to promote long-term survival, growth, and reproductive success.
"May 2001." The Project workgroup consists of individuals from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Region 10), U.S. Forest Service, Washington Department of Ecology, National Marine Fisheries Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission, Idaho Department of Environmental Quality, U.S. Geological Survey, and Oregon Department of Environmental Quality.
Contents Notes
"The technical workgroup developed five technical summaries on the major physical and biological considerations for developing water temperature standards: 1. thermal effects on salmonid physiology, 2. thermal effects on salmonid behavior, 3. interactions between multiple stressors ... affecting salmonids, 4. thermal influences on salmonid distribution, and 5. spatial and temporal variation in patterns of stream temperature."--Preface
