Section 7. Abstract


This project is meant to enable the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) to participate in planning, implementation and monitoring and evaluations within the Grande Ronde and Walla Walla basins as part of the Northeast Oregon Hatchery program (NEOH). WDFW has co-management responsibilities for approximately 60 km of the lower Grande Ronde River and several of its tributaries within Washington, as well as management responsibilities in the majority of the Walla Walla basin (73%) that lies within Washington. Although NEOH planning is currently on-going among the Nez Perce Tribe (NPT), Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) and the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) within the Walla Walla and Grande Ronde basins, the WDFW has had little opportunity to participate in these plans that will likely affect salmonid and other fishery resources within these basins in Washington State. The NEOH program was established to identify and develop artificial propagation facilities to enhance anadromous salmonids in select basins within northeast Oregon and southeast Washington as authorized by the Northwest Power Planning Council’s (NPPC) Fish and Wildlife Program (FWP), section 7.4. Originally this program focused on contributing to the NPPC’s doubling goal for salmon. Recent listings of salmon and steelhead under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) have caused a change of focus to protection, recovery and enhancement of these species. The goal is to increase adult salmonid returns and natural spawning. Some existing populations will be enhanced and other species or populations will be reintroduced where they are currently extirpated. This goal is to be achieved by increasing the number of juvenile emigrants, while avoiding unintended changes to populations structure, genetics, or fitness of naturally existing populations. Without intervention, some existing populations are expected to continue to decrease and other populations can not be reintroduced into these watersheds. The NEOH Program implementation is expected to result in increased numbers of wild adults for some populations and thereby reduce risks to those populations and hasten recovery and delisting. Supplementation under this program is planned for a minimum of five salmon generations (25 years). Participation in this program by WDFW should improve protection of fishery resources and interests within Washington, improve coordination, and expedite co-manager approvals for NEOH implementation.
