Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. To test the hypothesis that supplementation techniques can be used in the Yakima and Klickitat River basins to increase natural production and to improve harvest opportunities . See individual YKFP Umbrella sub-proposals
2. To maintain the long-term genetic fitness of the wild and native salmonid populations and keep adverse ecological interactions within acceptable limits . See individual YKFP Umbrella sub-proposals
3. To provide knowledge about the use of supplementation, so that it may be used to mitigate effects on anadromous fisheries throughout the Columbia River Basin . See individual YKFP Umbrella sub-proposals
4. To maintain and improve the quantity and productivity of salmon and steelhead habitat, including those areas made accessible by habitat improvements . See individual YKFP Umbrella sub-proposals
5. To ensure that Project implementation remains consistent with the Council's Fish and Wildlife Program . See individual YKFP Umbrella sub-proposals
6. To implement the Project in a prudent and environmentally sound manner . See individual YKFP Umbrella sub-proposals

Section 7. Abstract


The Yakima/Klickitat Fisheries Project (YKFP or Project) is a supplementation project designated by the Northwest Power Planning Council, the Yakama Indian Nation (YIN), the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), and the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) as the principal means of protecting, mitigating and enhancing the anadromous fish populations in the Yakima and Klickitat River basins. It is the largest supplementation project within the Northwest Power Planning Council’s Fish and Wildlife Program. The Project’s production and research activities will be brought on-line in gradual stages. The first phase (tier) targets the supplementation of depressed populations of upper Yakima River spring chinook. This initial phase also includes research designed to determine the feasibility of re-establishing a naturally spawning population and a significant fall fishery of coho salmon in the Yakima basin. Future phases of the YKFP include supplementation of fall chinook and steelhead, and a reintroduction of now extirpated stocks. Also envisioned for the Project’s future is fish production (which could include the introduction of supplementation) in the Klickitat basin. Fish production in the basin will include the use of the Klickitat Hatchery, a Mitchell Act facility now operated by WDFW. Given the number and diversity of Project objectives, tasks, and facilities, its co-managers, Yakama Indian Nation and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, in cooperation with the Bonneville Power Administration and Council staff, agreed to organize all Project activities within one umbrella document. It is the managers belief that an umbrella approach provides the best opportunity for readers unfamiliar with the Project to understand its varied components and their relationships. This document briefly describes the Project umbrella, and the Project activities, within its four major work areas, that fall under the Project umbrella. These areas are: Monitoring and Evaluation, Operation and Maintenance, Management, Data and Habitat, and Design and Construction. Each of the four subject areas will comprise sub-proposals (e.g. the Monitoring and Evaluation sub-proposal), under which Project activities within each area will be described in detail.
