Section 7. Abstract


The purpose of the expansion of propagation in Pelton Ladder is to contribute, in a low cost manner, to the spring chinook salmon production goal outlined in the Deschutes River and Hood River subbasin plans and to the Coucil’s system-wide goal of substantially increasing salmon runs to the Columbia River Basin. Studies will be conducted comparing the following: (1) Pelton Ladder vs. Round Butte Hatchery reared spring chinook; (2) spring chinook reared in the old cells of Pelton Ladder vs. the new cells of Pelton Ladder; (3) survival of 8 fish per pound spring chinook smolts vs. 12 fish per pound at release from both Pelton ladder and the hatchery. All experimental groups will be coded-wire tagged and reared under as identical conditions as possible. A total of 454,000 spring chinook smolts are used in this study annually. Products of the project will contribute to: re-establishment of spring chinook populations in the Hood River Basin; evaluate critical uncertanties about re-establishing anadromous fisheries in the Hood River Basin; the evaluation of new rearing methods that may have implications for production in the Collumbia River Basin.
