One Fish Two Fish Web Tools

These tools are for designing studies before data are collected.

The design of research, monitoring and evaluation (RME) studies presents an opportunity for fish and wildlife entities to demonstrate whether fish and wildlife projects in the Columbia River basin and elsewhere are effective (McDonald et al. 2007). To develop reliable study designs, statistical tools backed by appropriate statistical theory are needed. This site provides such tools. Each tool is documented so the assumptions are stated, statistical theory is detailed, and derivations of underlying equations may be verified.

These tools are for analysis when data are already in hand.

The web-based visualization tools compiled here are under active development as concepts for displaying and interpreting data available to fisheries researchers in the Columbia Basin. Development of the tools and the website is funded by the Bonneville Power Administration. However, interpretations derived from these should not be construed to be official BPA assessments, unless specified in the specific tool.
