Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Gather data related to smolt migrational timings of individual and combined populations of wild fish. a. Collect and PIT tag wild Snake River spring/summer chinook salmon parr during late summer each year. Download/analyze PIT-tag detection information on these fish from PSMFC database each spring and summer.
2. Gather data on environmental conditions within streams where PIT-tagged wild parr reside. a. Service and download/analyze data from environmental monitors every 4 months. Communicate analyzed data on Internet.
3. Provide timing information on a yearly basis and determine differences between years related to seasonal climatic and environmental conditions within the streams. a. Analyze all collected data and provide quarterly and annual reports.

Other Budget Explanation

Schedule Constraints: Acquisition of State of Idaho Collectors Permits and/or ESA-Permits may affect schedules. A major milestone occurred in 1997 when this projected shifted from a 6-year study to an ongoing study, due to the importance of obtaining migrational timing information for wild fish stocks.

Section 7. Abstract


The overall project goals are to: 1) characterize the migration timing of selected wild stocks of Snake River spring/summer chinook salmon smolts at dams on the Snake and Columbia Rivers, 2) determine if consistent migration patterns are apparent, and 3) determine what environmental factors influence migration timing. The FWP states that a monitoring program will provide information on the migrational characteristics of various stocks of salmon and steelhead within the Columbia Basin and further urges conservation of genetic diversity, which will only be possible if wild stocks are preserved. Wild chinook salmon parr are PIT tagged in their natal streams in late summer, and smolts are monitored at downstream dams the following spring and summer. Migrational timing patterns of individual and combined populations are mapped over time and examined for relationships with various environmental and climatic conditions.

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
ISRP reviewers note that this is a well-written proposal for basic studies on the migration of endangered/threatened salmon stocks. The panel asks if coordination with related projects, such as 9102900, is being conducted in the most efficient manner.
