Section 7. Abstract


The goal of the program is to tag a statistically valid number of individual fish of each species from each hatchery such that accurate estimates of survival, contribution and stray rates can be made, and allow comparison between groups of fish released from each hatchery. For multiple group comparison the release numbers have been determined to have sufficient power such that the probability of detecting at a 50% difference in survival between groups is p=1-0.95/2. The expected outcome of this project is a long time series of survival data as well as sufficient tag recoveries of strays to comply with guidelines of hatchery production outlined in the Snake River and other to be developed recovery plans. This information is particularly important to meeting the goals of the Fish and Wildlife Program and will provide data for other scientific analysis to be done at later dates. A long, continuous time series of data on survival, contribution, and straying of hatchery salmon currently does not exist for Columbia River hatcheries. Time series data is essential to understanding trends in salmonid abundance caused by environmental and other factors as well as analyzing the effectiveness of hatcheries in meeting production goals in a cost effective manner and determine the ecological effects of hatchery fish on wild fish.
