Section 7. Abstract


The Snake River Recovery Plan and the NPPC Fish and Wildlife Program (among many other documents) cite the potential benefits of selective fisheries in reducing fishery impacts on depressed stocks of chinook salmon. However, substantial concerns exist regarding the effects of selective fisheries for chinook salmon on the viability of the coded-wire-tag (CWT) system, management risk, and the cost of fishery management. The goal of this project is to provide tools for evaluating these concerns, thus providing a common basis for policy decisions regarding the appropriate use of mass marking and selective fisheries for marked chinook salmon. To achieve this goal, it is essential that the tools have the consensus support of all relevant management agencies. This joint proposal is the initial step in the development of a consensus decision. Additionally, an Oversight Committee comprised of representatives of management agencies will direct development of the analytical tool and participate in the estimation of parameters needed for the analysis. The analytical methods that we propose are extensions of previous work with coho salmon conducted by the Pacific Salmon Commission and the Columbia River Basin Project. The general methods developed for coho salmon appear to be applicable to chinook salmon, but the complexities of chinook salmon migrations and life history mean that a more complex migration and age structure will be needed. Bimonthly reviews of the project will be completed by the Oversight Committee; model development and parameter estimation will be completed by September of 2000.
