Project IDTitleDescription
9202604 Spring Chinook Salmon Early Life History [ODFW] PIT-tags wild ESA-listed Snake River chinook parr in natal streams during summer season. PIT-tag detections the following spring are used by Program RealTime to make in-season run-timing predictions for potential use by the TMT and fisheries community.
8401400 Smolt Monitoring at Federal Dams [NMFS-ETSD] Program RealTime uses PIT-tag detections and passage index data to generate in-season, real-time, Internet-based information on status and prediction of migration timing for ESA-listed wild stocks as they pass through FCRPS.
8712700 Smolt Monitoring by Non-Federal Entities [PSMFC] Program RealTime uses PIT-tag detections and passage index data to generate in-season, real-time, Internet-based information on status and prediction of migration timing for ESA-listed wild stocks as they pass through FCRPS.
8332300 Smolt Condition & Arrival Timing at Lower Granite [IDFG] Program RealTime uses PIT-tag detections and passage index data to generate in-season, real-time, Internet-based information on status and prediction of migration timing for ESA-listed wild stocks as they pass through FCRPS.
8910800 Monitoring and Evaluation Modeling Support [UW] The RealTime model of this project is linked with the CRiSP model of Project 8910800 to extend predictions of migration timing to sites below Lower Granite Dam. Supports DART which provides real-time, on-line database services and presentations.
9008000 Columbia Basin PIT-Tag Information System (PTAGIS) [PSMFC] Provides the high quality real-time PIT-tag data made available through PTAGIS as input to the daily runs of the Program RealTime PIT-forecaster to generate on-line, Internet-based predictions of run timing for individual and combined ESA wild stocks.
9102800 Monitoring Smolt Migration of Wild Snake River Spring/Summer Chinook [NMFS] PIT-tags wild ESA-listed Snake River chinook parr in natal streams during summer season. PIT-tag detections the following spring are used by Program RealTime to make in-season run-timing predictions for potential use by the TMT and fisheries community.
9700200 PATH-UW Technical Support Provide analyses of selected data sets and issues related to PATH deliberations.
9403300 Fish Passage Center [PSMFC] Uses the in-season smolt index passage information that is compiled and provided by the FPC's database center in the RealTime Passage Index Forecaster program to generate on-line forecasts of in-season passage for ESA-listed wild chinook and steelhead.
9507000 Evaluation Effectiveness Flow Augmentation in the Snake River [BioAnalysts] Provides opportunity to explore and perhaps resolve some remaining issues identified in Phase I of Project 950700 and apply analytical tools and capability to optimally target timing of flow augmentation with migratory timing.
9600600 PATH Facilitation, Technical Assistance & Peer Review [ESSA] Performs tasks that analyze and interpret tagging data in ways that other research entities currently do not perform. Provides an added-value to historical tagging data by testing hypotheses, estimating parameters, and modeling interrelationships.
9600800 PATH Participation by State & Tribal Agencies [ODFW] Performs analyses of historical tagging data and publishes reports which are made available to PATH.
9601700 Technical Support for PATH [BioAnalysts] Performs analyses of tagging data which is provided to PATH as requested.
9503400 EW Program Support [BPA-UW Provides technical assistance and statistical support related to BPA's internal assessment, peer review, and monitoring and evaluation requirements.
9107200 Sockeye Salmon Captive Broodstock [IDFG] Beginning in 1997, this UW project applied Program RealTime to make run-timing predictions for Redfish Lake sockeye available for use by the TMT and fisheries community.

Comment:

ISRP reviewers comment that this well-written proposal represents good basic research. This proposed work by a non-government agency provides valuable oversight for analysis of parameters such as: adult return rates, ocean survival, effectiveness of transportation, and smolt survival. The reviewers note that historic data have been impressively analyzed, but publications of results in peer reviewed journals are largely missing -- the ISRP encourages peer-reviewed publication of results. The reviewers also question whether the most efficient relationship exists between this project and the proposed project 9302900 (Survival estimates for the passage of juvenile salmonids through dams and reservoirs).
