Description
Summary:The goal of this study is to provide relevant information on Cook Inlet beluga whales and prey species ecology in the Susitna River and delta with respect to potential changes in the lower river habitat that may result due to construction and operation of the Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project. Prey species information for eulachon will be gathered as a part of this study while information for salmon will be coordinated with other fish studies ongoing and proposed for the lower river. The study area (as described in later documents) includes the upper portion of the Cook Inlet, the Susitna River delta, and the river up to river mile 50.
