Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Mark & Release at least one group of smolts from those Federal Hatcheries not currently doing so and mark the fish for the other projects within this contract. a. Coordinate the marking with all appropriate entities, provide routine supervision of marking areas at each tagging site, and a quality-control plan
2. Recover and decode tags and estimate survival of tagged groups, and evaluate the results a. Collect snouts from adult returns to hatcheries
3. Prepare an annual written report which will evaluate the survival and contribution of all representative groups of fish for all federal fish hatcheries in the Columbia River Basin. a. Retrieve coded wire tag recoveries from PSMFC database.
4. Raise Spring chinook salmon at the Little White Salmon/Willard NFH Complex for the Umatilla Program a. Begin rearing brood year 1998 spring chinook salmon
5. Conduct all fish Health exams necessary to meet the fish disease requirements necessary for these fish to be planted in the Umatilla River a. Collect all samples and do required lab work and tests.

Section 7. Abstract


Over 26.3 million juvenile salmonids have been marked by USFWS for evaluation in the Columbia River basin as a result of this project The various purposes of evaluation include: to estimate the survival of each release group, to estimate the contribution of each release group to ocean and in-river fisheries, to estimate straying rate of hatchery fish, to estimate smolt migration speed, to evaluate hatchery practices, and individual broodstocks. Under this 1999 proposal the USFWS will continue to mark fish for evaluation studies and also continue to rear spring chinook salmon for release for the Umatilla Fisheries Program. The USFWS will also conduct all the fish health exams necessary to meet fish disease requirements for these fish to be planted in the Umatilla River.
