Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

Region-wide concern for declining stocks of Columbia River coastal cutthroat trout is documented in section 7.5E of the 1994 Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Program. The goal of the proposed study is to provide vital information on the current status of cutthroat trout populations in the lower Columbia Basin as a necessary prerequisite to future recovery efforts. Study objectives are to (1) document existing data on historical and current distribution and describe management practices that affect cutthroat trout in the Columbia River basin above Bonneville Dam, and (2) determine status of naturally reproducing populations of cutthroat trout above Bonneville Dam. Objective 1 will be conducted from 2000-01 using a combination of questionnaires and a review of existing biological data and land-use, production, and harvest management practices. Objective 2 will be conducted from 2000-02 by conducting fish and habitat surveys. Surveys will be used to estimate density and biomass of cutthroat trout at selected index sites. Analysis of length, weight, scales, otoliths, and selected tissue samples will be used to describe population characteristics including age and growth, life history patterns, and genetic characteristics of cutthroat trout.
