Explore the feasibility of increasing mark sizes to improve precision in the annual ratio of transport survival rate to inriver survival rate [Task 1(a)] measured back to the hatchery.
3. Compute and compare overall smolt-to-adult survival rates for selected upriver and downriver spring and summer chinook hatcheries. a. Compute annual hatchery survival rates (adjusted for terminal harvest rates) using both CWT and PIT tags for selected upriver and downriver hatchery stocks. Compare survival rates of CWT and PIT tag estimates. Estimate survival rates (smolt-to-adult) fo
3. Compute and compare overall smolt-to-adult survival rates for selected upriver and downriver spring and summer chinook hatcheries. b. Compute an annual ratio of downriver hatchery survival rate to upriver hatchery survival rate (all measured at the hatcheries and adjusted for terminal harvest) with associated confidence interval.
3. Compute and compare overall smolt-to-adult survival rates for selected upriver and downriver spring and summer chinook hatcheries. c. Test if the annual ratio of downriver hatchery survival rate to upriver hatchery survival rate (all measured at the hatcheries) is greater than 2.0 with sufficient power to provide a high probability that the ratio is greater than 1.0.
3. Compute and compare overall smolt-to-adult survival rates for selected upriver and downriver spring and summer chinook hatcheries. d. Test aggregately & individually the annual ratio of downriver hatchery survival rate to upriver hatcheries transported smolts survival rate is greater than 2.0 with sufficient power to privide a high probability that the ratio is greater than 1.0.
3. Compute and compare overall smolt-to-adult survival rates for selected upriver and downriver spring and summer chinook hatcheries. e. Explore the feasibility of developing lower river wild index stocks (e.g., Warm Springs, John Day, and Klickitat rivers) to measure smolt-to-adult survival rates.
4. Begin a time series of smolt-to-adult survival rates for use in the PATH hypothesis testing process and in the regional long-term monitoring and evaluation program, which is under development. .
5. 5. Evaluate growth patterns of transported and inriver migrating smolts, and of upriver and downriver stocks. a. Collect and catalog scales from PIT tagged adults detected at Lower Granite Dam adult trap or at the upriver hatcheries.
5. 5. Evaluate growth patterns of transported and inriver migrating smolts, and of upriver and downriver stocks. b. Coordinate with the downriver hatcheries to collect and catalog scales from CWT groups that are representative of the production lots from which the PIT tagged fish were taken.

Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

The Comparative Survival Study is the fourth year of a long term PIT tag study to develop smolt-to-adult survival indices for spring and summer stream type chinook originating above Lower Granite Dam to evaluate smolt migration mitigation measures and actions (such as flow augmentation, spill, and transportation) for the recovery of listed salmon stocks. The objective of developing smolt-to-adult survival indices is consistent with the recommendations of the PATH (Plan for Analyzing and Testing Hypotheses) process being carried out by the regional, state, federal and tribal salmon managers with the Northwest Power Planning Council (NPPC). The PATH recommendations address the question, “can transportation of fish to below Bonneville Dam compensate for the effect of the hydro system on juvenile survival rates of the Snake River spring and summer chinook salmon during their downstream migration?” The PATH recommended research includes the following; 1) Estimate smolt-to-adult survival rate (SAR) for transported wild and hatchery stream type chinook, 2) Determine if SAR rates are significantly different from the interim SAR hydro goal, 3) Compare SARs of transported and downriver indicator stocks, 4) Estimate transport/control ratio and in-river survival concurrently over a number of years in order to span a range of environmental conditions.
