Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

The Independent Scientific Review Panel (ISRP) recently recommended that the Northwest Power Planning Council (NWPPC) require a systematic basin-wide inventory of resident fishes, stating that Section 10.2 of the Fish and Wildlife Program describes the need for such a survey. Further, during their review of FY1999 proposals, the ISRP recommended that this study receive funding, citing its relevance to National Marine Fisheries Service and NWPPC programs. The goal of this proposed study is to assess the status of resident fish populations in the Bonneville, The Dalles, and John Day reservoirs. Study objectives are to: (1) develop standardized sampling gears, protocols, and a statistically valid sampling design that will facilitate designing future resident fish surveys (duration 2000-2001), and (2) assess the status of resident fish populations in the lowest three impoundments on the Columbia River. Sampling gears will be chosen, fished in appropriate habitats, and experimentally evaluated on one reservoir. Objective 2 involves the implementation and evaluation of the surveys (duration 2001-2003). A stratified random sampling design will be implemented by stratifying the reservoirs by enduring geomorphic features representing important fish habitat types. Collection sites will be randomly selected using a geographic information system. The proposed cooperative project between the U. S. Geological Survey, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife would lay the groundwork for assessing resident fish populations in the Columbia River. These data could be used in evaluations of both local (e.g., hydroelectric operations) and regional projects (e.g., watershed activities that influence mainstem river conditions).
