Section 7. Abstract


To maintain Snake River chinook salmon metapopulation or stock structure, the within and among population variability, IDFG initiated a captive rearing program for populations at high risk of extinction. Captive rearing is a short term approach to species preservation. The main objective of the captive rearing approach is to avoid demographic and environmental risks of cohort extinction; maintaining the genetic identity of the breeding unit is an important but secondary objective. The strategy of captive rearing is to prevent cohort collapse of the specified target populations by providing captively reared adult spawners to the natural environment, which, in turn, maintain the continuum of generation to generation smolt production. Each generation of smolts, then, provides the opportunity for population maintenance or increase should environmental conditions prove favorable for that cohort. The primary goal of this project is to develop the technology for captive propagation of chinook salmon that satisfy program needs. This is a demonstration project as identified in section 7.4D.2 of the Council’s Fish and Wildlife program. Project 9801002 (IDFG) provides for some monitoring and evaluation during the captive rearing phase. The most important element of 9801002 is to monitor and evaluate the post-release behavior and spawning success of mature adult salmon produced through captive rearing. Success of the overall captive rearing program is dependent on the development of rearing technology and the biological performance of fish produced in the program. The year 2005 is the expected end date for the current demonstration project. The project may continue if the demonstration process is successful and leads to a recovery program.

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
These proposals [199700100 and 199801002] are for a captive rearing program to preserve endangered stocks of Snake River chinook salmon. The proposals do not reference relevant NMFS studies on captive rearing. Captive rearing is a new approach and should be implemented cautiously. The relationship of 9700100 to 9801002 needs to be better described. 9801002 includes what appears to be a good monitoring and evaluation project. The research and monitoring should come before full-scale supplementation actions. This project should be combined with those for which it is intended to provide monitoring and evaluation, so that overall soundness of the project, including its evaluation aspects, can be judged.
