Writing, Editing and Report Production

San Joaquin River Restoration Program

US Fish and Wildlife Service
As part of a team conducting targeted restoration feasibility analyses and drafting fisheries implementation plans, Meridian contributes technical writing, editing and meeting documentation services. Our involvement has included a fish passage feasibility assessment, Chinook salmon reintroduction plan, broodstock management plan, and a fisheries implementation plan. In addition, we document multi-day planning sessions and provide in-meeting document drafting services.

Technical Reports and Support to the Columbia River Hatchery Scientific Review Group

NOAA Fisheries and Bonneville Power Administration (with D.J. Warren and Associates)
Over this two year assignment, Meridian compiled and edited 246 individual reports on 351 populations of salmon and steelhead found in the Columbia River Basin, 34 ESU/DPS summary reports, interim species recommendation reports, and a final summary report of all findings and recommendations. We managed many iterations of each component and the electronic file production for web posting and hard copy production.

Technical Reports and Support for the California Hatchery Scientific Review Group

Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission & U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
Meridian collaborated with DJ Warren & Associates to prepare reports about 19 anadromous hatchery programs in California. Our role included compiling extensive information about each affected salmon population and producing technical reports for use by the HSRG in making hatchery facility and operational reform recommendations. Meridian compiled and edited all reports published by this group of scientists and documented all of their meetings.
