Bioeconomic model population data, Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA

February 12, 2019

These data were estimated for use in the bioecomomic model simulation of the rainbow trout population in the Colorado River in Marble Canyon. The initial rainbow trout abundance is a vector (RBT_intN) representing the population of rainbow trout within each river segment (151 mile long sergments) along the mainstem of the Colorado River from Lees Ferry to 151 river miles downstream. The movement matrix (MMat) is a distribution that estimates the probability that a rainbow trout wil move to any one of the 151 river segments downstream of Lees Ferry.
