Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

: Umatilla Hatchery is the foundation for rehabilitating chinook salmon and enhancing steelhead in the Umatilla River. Fish released in the Umatilla River are expected to contribute significantly to the NPPC doubling goal in the Columbia basin. Monitoring and evalauation of hatchery rearing is essential to achieving basin goals and include: 1) provide information for culture and release of hatchery fish, harvest regulations, and natural escapement that will lead to the accomplishement of long-term natural and hatchery production goals in the Umatilla River basin in a manner consistent with provisions of the Council’s Fish and Wildlife program; and 2) assess the success of achieving the managment objectives in the Umatilla River basin that are presented in the Master Plan and the Comprehensive Rehabilitation Plan. Hatchery studies focus on the production of fish in Michigan raceways using oxygen supplementation, and the success of different rearing and release strategies. This Michigan system has not been throughly evaluated and may have systemwide application in the Columbia basin. Experiments and methods follow the criteria established in the comprehensive study plan. Outcomes produced from this project will be: measurement and analyses of juvenile rearing performance, juvenile and adult survival, fish health, catch contribution to comercial, tribal, and sport fisheries, effects of mass marking and straying for chinook salmon and steelhead. The expected performance is 21,000 fall chinook, 11,000 spring chinook, and 9,670 steelhead. A minimum of 15 years is expected to be required to meet goals for fall chinook salmon (2006)

Inadequate proposal, adequate purpose as a set
Date:
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
This proposal spelled out the research methods and provided null hypotheses, which the ISRP appreciated. Objectives were clearly stated but the proposal was poorly edited in places. The history of operation of the hatchery has been long enough that a summary of monitoring and evaluation findings should have been presented. Studies on oxygenated raceways in a Willamette River hatchery were recently conducted but were not referenced in this proposal.
