Mitigation in ESA Section 7 Consultations using Habitat Equivalency Analysis (MPAC)
Recently, the NMFS Nearshore Habitat Values and Habitat Equivalency Analysis group have developed an HEA model to determine appropriate levels of mitigation for unavoidable impacts to nearshore habitat for listed Chinook salmon and are working on a fluvial model for other listed salmonid species. This model alleviates the uncertainty of mitigation in project planning and is a valuable tool in the protection of listed species. Further, use of the model will create a speedier consultation process.
