Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Insure all ODFW Columbia Basin hatchery coho and chinook production releases have a representative CWT group included in the release. a. Review ODFW Columbia Basin hatchery production schedules to identify production releases, and identify tagging needs. For 1998 715,000 fish in 24 groups.
. b. Coordinate with ODFW Fish Identification section to perform coded-wire tagging of identified groups.
. c. At least 1 month after tagging sample 500 fish from each CWT group for tag retention and adipose fin clip quality.
. d. Collect release information and file CWT report for each group tagged under objective 1. Data is reported to PSMFC and available through their on-line computer database.
2. Recover coded-wire tags from snouts of fish tagged under Objective 1 and released during 1995 to 1998: (1996 brood coho; 1994 to 1996 brood fall chinook; 1994 to 1996 brood spring chinook). a. Snouts are collected by region wide fishery sampling programs, and at ODFW hatcheries, and on ODFW spawning ground surveys..
. b. Transport snouts from ODFW hatcheries and spawning ground surveys to the ODFW Fish Identification section for tag recovery and decoding.
. c. Compile and verify sampling and tag data. Report data to PSMFC, available through their on-line computer database.
3. Prepare annual report for all Oregon salmon hatcheries in the Columbia Basin.. a. Report results of coded-wire tagging and tag recovery for 1999.
. b. Compile release and recovery information for all CWT groups released from Oregon Columbia Basin hatcheries.
. c. Calculate percent survival, ocean catch distribution, and freshwater escapement for the last 5 completed brood years for all CWT groups released from Oregon Columbia Basin hatcheries.
4. Evaluate the technical, logistic, and biological feasibility of using alternative marking techniques to mark large numbers of juvenile coho salmon. a. Work with Northwest Marine Technology to coordinate the use of tagging equipment and to provide for training of three to six employees in elastomer visual implant tagging techniques. Acquire necessary equipment, tags, and other supplies.
. b. Tag two groups of 25,000 fish each with elastomer visual implant tags. Tags will be placed in the jaw, each group with a different color. The fish will be juvenile coho salmon at Sandy hatchery, tagged in summer 1999, for release in May 2000.
. c. Differentially coded-wire tag the two groups of 25,000 elastomer visual implant tagged juvenile coho salmon at Sandy hatchery. A control group of 25,000 fish will also be coded-wire tagged with a distinct tagcode under Objective 1.
. d. Collect and record pre-release data pertaining to tag related mortality, fish size, tag retention, and tag visibility.
. e. Collect and summarize data from fish returning in 2000 and 2001. Prepare progress report covering tagging techniques, tag retention and visibility, and survival rates.

Other Budget Explanation

Schedule Constraints: Production and release of hatchery salmonids in the Columbia Basin is regulated by NMFS under the Endangered Species Act. Specific groups to be tagged depend on funding for the production and tagging of hatchery salmon in Oregon. .

Section 7. Abstract


This program began in 1989 with the understanding that the current level of marking of juvenile hatchery salmon did not provide the necessary data for the level of management decisions needed. The program proposed including a marked group with each production salmon release from Oregon Columbia Basin hatcheries. This increase in marking would provide data for three main goals: evaluate and improve hatchery methods at each facility, contribute to the ability to regulate harvest management, evaluate the use of artificial production in the basin. The adipose fin clip + coded-wire tag (Jefferts etal 1963) was chose as the method of marking. This program is expected to continue as long as artificial production is used to provide salmon for the Columbia Basin, and there is a need to monitor and evaluate such production.
