Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

The proposed work has three main objectives: 1) develop an extended-range PIT-tag interrogation system for adult salmon and other fish; 2) assist BPA in the transition to a 134.2-kHz ISO-based PIT-tag system for the entire Columbia River Basin; and 3) install and evaluate a 3-way side-to-side PIT-tag diversion system. The first objective is divided into three tasks: A) development of 134.2-kHz ISO-based pass-by and pass-through PIT-tag interrogation systems; B) develop plans and obtain approval for installation of a pass-by adult PIT-tag interrogation system at a dam; and C) develop plans, model, and obtain approval, to construct a test facility for evaluating extended-range PIT-tag interrogation systems. For each of the project’s work elements, realistic milestones have been established in conjunction with a decision tree. Because of the complexity of Objectives 1 and 2, they will not be completed during the performance period FY99. However, a 134.2-kHz ISO-base pass-by PIT-tag interrogation system will be ready for installation at a dam and approval for its installation should be obtained. In addition, progress toward developing large pass-by and pass-through PIT-tag interrogation systems will have been made and a test facility for field evaluation of extended-range PIT-tag interrogation systems will be designed, but not constructed. Objective 3 will be completed by 30 September 1999. The products from Objective 3 will be available to the fisheries community at the conclusion of the performance period given no unforeseen problems. The continued development of the PIT tag and ancillary equipment will further expand the PIT-tag system’s capabilities and thus enable managers to address issues expressed in both the Biological Opinion for operation of the Federal Columbia River Power System and the proposed Snake River Recovery Plan (examples are 2.ID, 2.3.b.4, 2.4.a, 2.6.c.2, and 2.9.d).

Comment:
ISRP reviewers note that this long-term fish tag project will provide important information, but the impressive cost demands rigid accounting oversight to ensure the most economical study possible.
