Other Budget Explanation

Schedule Constraints: Schedule may be constrained by population viability of ESA-listed stocks in this recovery program. If population numbers are still low by the year 2001, then captive broodstocks may have to be continued to protect the gene pools.

Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is maintaining captive broodstocks of ESA-listed Snake River spring/summer chinook salmon. The relatively high fecundity of anadromous Pacific salmon, coupled with potentially high survival in protective culture, should allow captive broodstocks to produce large numbers of adults and juveniles to help "jumpstart" depleted populations. Implementation and refinement of captive broodstocks for the recovery of Snake River spring/summer chinook salmon are identified as a priorities in the NWPPC Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Program and the NMFS proposed Recovery Plan for Snake River. The NMFS captive broodstock program for Snake River spring/summer chinook salmon focuses on stocks from Idaho’s upper Salmon River sub-basin and Oregon’s Grande Ronde River sub-basin, is complementary to programs of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Game (ODFW), and together are intended to reduce the risk of catastrophic loss of these valuable gene pools. Currently, the program concentrates on 1994- and 1995-brood captured as juveniles from the wild by IDFG and ODFW and transferred as smolts to a pumped, filtered, and ultraviolet-light sterilized seawater system at the NMFS Manchester Marine Experimental Station. Over the next few years, it is anticipated that similar groups of fish from streams within the sub-basins will be transferred to Manchester on a yearly basis. Survivals of 1994-brood at Manchester range from 77-93% and survivals of 1995-brood range from 76-95%. Milt from both age-2 and age 3 male fish have been cryopreserved for use in future matings. In addition, some maturing age-3 Idaho fish have been released to their natal streams. The majority of the 1994- and 1995-broods are expected to mature in 1998 and 1999, respectively.

[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
This proposal is for work to provide an insurance program for stock in critical condition in the wild. This proposal describes the benefits and the risks of their planned activities. The Manchester facility provides salt water rearing that has proved beneficial. Personnel appear to be highly technically competent. The effectiveness of broodstock supplementation needs to be carefully analyzed.
