The San Francisco Bay Long-Term Management Strategy (LTMS) is a collaborative partnership with the purpose to conduct dredging activities in an economically prudent and environmentally sound manner. This project will produce a self-standing update to the 2004 LTMS Science Framework that will provide information about the potential effects of dredging on the following threatened and endangered species and state species of special concern that were not included in the original document: California clapper rail, California least tern, green sturgeon, longfin smelt, salt harvest mouse, and Dungeness crab. The Update will also provide an updated list of management concerns and research questions for the species analyzed in the original document, based on knowledge gained over the past six years.
