Section 7. Abstract


This ongoing project 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). Under this project, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife scientists will lead the development of detailed monitoring plans stating major objectives, experimental hypotheses, risk containment measures, and specific field protocols to guide evaluation of supplementation success in the Yakima/Klickitat Fisheries Project. Agency scientists will also perform power analyses to evaluate the strength of experimental designs developed through the Monitoring Implementation Planning Team (MIPT). In addition, scientists will conduct field research to begin monitoring and evaluation of various response variables as described in the Yakima Fisheries Project Spring Chinook Monitoring Plan. Results will be reported to the YKFP Policy Group through the Project’s Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC).
