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:

  • 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.
