Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: The major potential constraints are availability of parr for sampling from wild and natural populations. This was not a problem in 1989-94, but in 1995 and 1996 lethal collections of spring/summer chinook salmon for allozymes were suspended because of record low returns of adults in 1994 and 1995. In those years, we placed more emphasis on non-lethal fin clips for DNA analysis and continued to sample from hatchery populations as feasible. Lethal sampling in 1997 was restricted to three collections on the South Fork Salmon River. Sampling in 1998 and 1999 should be feasible without undue risk to wild/natural populations, but the abundance of parr in subsequent years is more uncertain. Appropriate levels of sampling will be determined in consultation with state agency biologists, and through the process of securing state and federal ESA collection permits. The recent ESA listing of Snake River steelhead will require an ESA permit for this species.

Comment:

The proposed budget reduction proportionally reduces information from this study
Recommendation:
Adequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

This is a well-written proposal for needed information. This is the kind of work that should be done before major hatchery projects are implemented or expanded. Methods are thoroughly described and results to date have been published in the open literature. The small sampling of returning adults may limit what information can be gathered.
