Annotation: EA additional title info: FRCN/99/02
This paper presents the Environment Agency methodology used to set up the spawning target for the River Teign and to assess its compliance. It also provides details of which and how data are collected. The methodology relies on the Environment Agency transportation process from the river Bush to the River Teign, based on habitat classification by stream order and altitude range (SAP Guidelines version 1), and on river specific information such as: the accessible stream area for salmon, percentage of spawners assumed within each combination of altitude range and stream order ie, spawners distribution within the river catchment, percentage of grilse of the River Teign salmon population, percentage of females, fecundity. And on national means, such as: juvenile density, with proportion of fry and parrs, and marine survival.
