Section 7. Abstract


The 1994 Fish and Wildlife Program is to recover and preserve the health of native resident fish. Among the native resident species of concern noted in the Resident Fish section are bull trout, redband trout, and westslope cutthroat trout. All are or are likely candidates for actions under the ESA. Before at-risk populations can be protected, their presence and status must be documented. Where introgression from introduced species is a concern, as in the case of both westslope cutthroat and redband rainbow, genetic issues must be addressed as well. Most of the remaining pure populations of these species are in relatively remote, headwater drainages which present surmountable, but not slight, logistical obstacles to properly documenting/assessing such populations. Washington Trout proposes to conduct field visits, to remote habitats throughout the Washington State sub-basins of the Columbia still occupied by these native trout populations, for the purpose of cataloguing and photo-documenting the remaining native trout ecotypes. Taxonomy-quality photographs of living specimens will be made with the aid of a portable field aquarium. In addition, non-lethal methods will be used to take and preserve adipose or caudal fin tissue samples in a manner suitable for subsequent genetic analysis using modern DNA techniques. Dr. Pat Trotter will lead this fieldwork. He has extensive experience in, and credentials for, doing the work proposed. Fieldwork will be begun in 1998 and extend over the course of 5 field seasons. Results will be written up by Dr. Trotter for peer reviewed publication.
