Project IDTitleDescription
9600800 PATH Evaluation of the Fish and Wildlife Program depends on monitoring of index stocks throughout the Columbia Basin. The PATH Project has identified the John Day Basin spring chinook salmon population as an index population for assessing the
effects of alternative future mgmt. actions on salmon stocks in the Columbia Basin. To meet the data needs as in index stock, sufficient annual estimates of spawner escapement, age-structure, and smolt-to-adult survival rates are
essential. Without this spawner and age information, the utility of the John Day Basin spring chinook population as an index stock for assessing the effectiveness of Fish and Wildlife program measures will be diminished. In addition, smolt-to-
adult survival rate information on this population is extremely important to be able to contrast to responses of upper Columbia Basin populations over time.

Schedule Constraints: High water during smolt outmigration may limit our ability to capture adequate number of smolts for objective 4.

Comment:

This research is needed. The staff is well suited for the task. We question termination in 2003. That may be too soon to provide reliable baseline or index data. The proposal needs to provide more information about how PATH will use the information generated by this project.
