Primary focus for the position includes: supporting coastal fisheries managers with pre-season planning; in-season fishery monitoring; and the development of preseason forecasts and in-season update models. Familiarity with the fisheries models used for salmon and steelhead management, including how input data are used by the models to make projections and the ability to make changes or improvements to the models is important. This position will participate at the direction of the coastal tribes in joint Tribal/State/Federal forums and working groups, which rely on harvest management models (e.g., the Pacific Fishery Management Council and Pacific Salmon Commission) and will work closely with tribal, state, and federal technical staffs to develop joint work group technical analyses and reports. The position will be responsible for implementation of programs and reporting as required by coastal tribes to improve salmon/steelhead management.
