The interim priority list in Table E1 is based on the results of a Productivity and Susceptibility Analysis (PSA) conducted by the Department, in partnership with MRAG Americas, Inc and OST. See the PSA report (PDF)(opens in new tab) for information on the methodology and results.
This interim priority list was intended to help guide Department efforts while the more comprehensive prioritization approach described in Chapter 2 was implemented.
CDFW has completed the comprehensive prioritization approach discussed above and in Chapter 2. The results for finfish were presented to the California Fish and Game Commission in December 2019. Results for invertebrates were presented in November 2020.
