Section 7. Abstract


The Biological Monitoring of Columbia Basin Salmonids umbrella proposal groups the juvenile salmonid management projects in the basin to describe common objectives. The approach should be considered systemwide because the anadromous life history of the stocks extends through the entire Columbia basin during the juvenile and adult migrations when basin stocks interact. Species and stock specific attributes such as difference in the time of emergence, phasing and magnitude of smolt development, differences in migration times and length of ocean residence, all support the present subbasin or watershed approach to individual stock management, to be combined with a systemwide comparison of migration data. A combined subbasin and systemwide coordination approach would cover monitoring and evaluation from emergence, through rearing and migration, estuary survival, ocean residence, and the adult migration through spawning. Extensive efforts to improve juvenile salmonid condition and survival are being conducted basinwide. An adequate centralized program for enumerative and migration survival data presently exists, but it is not accompanied by consistent monitoring of salmonid migration biology. The umbrella proposal is a recommendation that a systemwide approach be applied to biological monitoring and evaluation that could be included in the ISRP recommended Smolt Monitoring Projects umbrella. This umbrella proposal supports a systemwide approach to salmonid management to facilitate annual information exchange and adaptive management of Columbia basin salmonids in a timely manner at this critical period for many basin stocks.
