Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Document existing data on historical and current distribution and describe management practices that affect sea-run cutthroat trout in the Columbia River basin. a. Review existing biological data, subbasin plans, land management regulations, and current production and harvest management practices (FY 1999-2000).
2. Determine status of naturally reproducing populations of sea-run cutthroat trout above and below Bonneville Dam. a. Survey streams above Bonneville Dam and selected reference streams below Bonneville Dam to determine presence-absence, relative abundance, and collect samples to determine life history pattern of cutthroat trout (FY 1999-2001).
. b. Conduct intensive surveys at index sites to estimate density and biomass of cutthroat trout, and identify limiting factors associated with habitat and species interactions (FY 1999-2001).
. c. Analyze scale, otolith, and fin tissue samples to describe age and growth, life history patterns (anadromous/resident), and genetic characteristics of populations of lower Columbia River cutthroat trout (2000-2001).

Section 7. Abstract


Region-wide concern for declining stocks of Columbia River sea-run cutthroat trout is documented in section 7.5E of the 1994 Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Program. The goal of the proposed study is to provide vital information on the current status of cutthroat trout populations in the lower Columbia Basin as a necessary prerequisite to future recovery efforts. Study objectives are to (1) summarize existing data and management practices related to Columbia River sea-run cutthroat trout, and (2) determine the status of populations above and below Bonneville Dam. Objective 1 will be conducted from 1999-2000 using a combination of questionaires and a review of existing biological data and land-use, production, and harvest management practices. Objective 2 will be conducted from 1999-2001 by conducting fish and habitat surveys. Surveys will be used to estimate density and biomass of cutthroat trout at selected index sites. Analysis of scale, otholith, and tissue samples will be used to describe population characteristics including age and growth, life history patterns, and genetic characteristics of cutthroat trout in the lower Columbia Basin.
