Klamath Fish Health Assessment Team (KFHAT)
The Klamath Fish Health Assessment Team (KFHAT) is a technical workgroup which formed during the summer of 2003 with the purpose of providing early warning and a coordinated response effort to avoid, or at least address, a non-hazardous materials related fish kill event in the anadromous portion of the Klamath River basin.
To accomplish this goal, KFHAT created a network through which information about current river and fish health conditions in the Klamath Basin can be quickly shared among participants, the general public, and resource managers.
Current Readiness Levels:
Mainstem Klamath, Shasta, Scott, Salmon, and Trinity Rivers - Yellow
- Conditions, such as unfavorable physical or chemical conditions,observation of increased incidence of pathogens, or increased fish morbidity and/or mortality suggest the need for heightened awareness.
- Frequent data sharing among KFHAT and resource managers becomes important.
- The Response Plan procedures should be reviewed and responders should be ready to take action if the situation worsens.
