StreamNet is a project which brings together fisheries information collected by state agencies, federal agencies, and Indian tribes in a system of interconnected sets of data about anadromous fish in the Columbia River Basin. The data are used to observe trends in stock abundance escapement, hatchery production, etc. Each data point is linked to corresponding literature which can be searched separately in a references database. Plans are in progress to make this system available via the Internet. Data entry for the reference module is done via Microsoft Access. The application has been designed to include features of both a catalog and an index, and, through creative programming, has been successful in serving the project as both. Documents are housed in the library at the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission. StreamNet is a cooperative project of the tribes, the state fisheries agencies of Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Montana federal fisheries agencies, and the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission. The project is funded by the Bonneville Power Administration.
