Abstract: This project will take the larger Kenai River watershed research plan (being prepared under Project 02612/Detecting and Understanding Marine/Terrestrial Linkages in the Kenai River Watershed) and focus it through ongoing community and stakeholder involvement and agency participation into a directed and implemented research program. Project 02612 has produced communication bulletins and a draft document, and organized workshops to foster an understanding of watershed issues and stakeholder interest and input. From this exercise we recognize the need to maintain and build this dialogue, but gain further involvement. The consensus expressed by participants in Project 02612 is that: (a) a research plan should be implemented that captures the continued involvement of local, state and federal perspectives, (b) a white paper should be developed that presents scientific issues and interests in a plan with broad political, agency and stakeholder distribution, (c) the time to maintain dialogue and interests should be extended beyond the initial research planning process, and (d) a detailed research program with management structure, specific project outlines, funding, and deliverables should be developed.
