Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

This ongoing task is one of an integrated suite of tasks which, collectively, implement the Yakima/Klickitat Fisheries Project (YKFP). The goal of the YKFP is to test the assumption that supplementation can be used to restore natural production and increase harvest opportunities while keeping genetic and ecological impacts within specified limits, as stipulated by the Northwest Power Planning Council (Measure 7.4K). This task establishes the baseline status of resident trout, steelhead, and spring chinook salmon and associated species and implements experiments to help define the competitive and ecological interactions that may occur between non-target taxa and supplemented anadromous species. Key risk factors are identified in the context of target and non-target species objectives and monitoring procedures and plans are developed and implemented to assess ecological responses to supplementation. The goals, objectives, and tasks of this project are developed and described by a multi-disciplinary team of scientists, the Monitoring and Evaluation Planning Team (MIPT). The supplementation monitoring framework is provided in the Upper Yakima Spring Chinook Monitoring Plan (Busack, et al., 1997; hard copy attached).
