Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

The Independent Scientific Review Panel recently recommended that the Northwest Power Planning Council require a systematic basin-wide inventory of resident fishes, stating that Section 10.2 of the Fish and Wildlife Program implicitly describes the need for such a survey. The goal of this proposed study is to assess the status of resident fish populations in the Bonneville, The Dalles, and John Day reservoirs. Study objectives are to: (1) develop standardized sampling gears, strict sampling protocols, and a statistically valid sampling design that can serve as a template for designing future surveys of resident fish populations (duration 1999-2000), and, (2) assess the status of resident fish populations in the lowest three impoundments on the Columbia River (duration 2000-2002). Sampling gears will be chosen, fished in appropriate habitats, and experimentally evaluated on one reservoir. Objective 2 involves the implementation and evaluation of the surveys. A stratified random sampling design will be implemented by stratifying the reservoirs by enduring geomorphic and physical features that represent important habitat types for fishes. Potential collection sites will be randomly selected using a geographic information system of important habitats. The proposed project would lay the groundwork for assessing resident fish species in the Columbia River. Once an assessment plan has been rigorously developed (this proposal), resident fish species could be sampled, populations assessed, and trends identified. These data could be used in evaluations of both local (e.g., hydroelectric operations) and regional projects (e.g., watershed activities that influence mainstem river conditions).
