Section 7. Abstract


This project was initiated as one of the Northeast Oregon Hatchery Projects to improve fish production in the Imnaha, Grande Ronde and Walla Walla basins via hatchery and satellite facility development. Originally this project focused on contributing to the council’s doubling goal. With the listing of Snake River chinook and steelhead under the federal Endangered Species Act, efforts have been refocused on contributing to recovery before attempting to meet the Council’s doubling goal. The objective is to contribute to an upward trend in spawning ground counts. This will be accomplished through increased outmigration of wild smolts, while avoiding unintended changes to population structure, fitness and genetics. Without intervention, loss of biodiversity and inbreeding depression due to small population size may put these stocks further at risk. Project implementation is expected to result in the return of increased numbers of wild adults, reducing those risks and hastening recovery and delisting. We expect recovery of these weak populations over the next 5+ generations (20+ years), to population sizes supporting ESA delisting. Specifics developed in the Master Plan will include: Evaluate success of returning adults from the Captive Brood and conventional hatchery programs, their resultant natural smolt production and adult returns. Success will be measured by progress toward recovery, delisting and healthy populations capable of supporting Tribal and Nontribal harvest.

Reviews and Recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

CBFWA: Nonwatershed Technical Group Comments Recommendation:
May 13, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]

Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Yes

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Yes

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Yes

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Incomplete: Minor corrections needed. Not enough detail to determine if resources are enough or appropriate in order to accomplish project. No data on past costs are included. A very long list of personnel is included but no information of FTE amounts for each person is included. The proposal also needs to include qualifications statements for key personnel.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:

1999 2000 2001
$215,000 $240,000 $250,000
Reduce time for review and planning (obj.2 and 6)

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Grande Ronde NEOH - Inadequate as a set
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
This is in part a proposal to construct satellite hatchery facilities and ponds. The proposal does not describe how broodstock will be mined, which is a risky endeavor. The proposal does not adequately describe the relation of the work to the other Grande Ronde NEOH facilities. The methods should give assurance that the remaining population will not be harmed by the proposed activities, but they do not.
