Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

The Columbia, Snake rivers Smolt Monitoring Program (SMP) was included as a measure in the 1982 original NPPC Fish and Wildlife Program. The SMP was established to provide a long-term consistent database as a foundation for development of hydrosystem operations to improve juvenile and adult fish passage conditions. Subsequently the SMP provided the basis for downstream passage measures of the NMFS Biological Opinion for listed Columbia and Snake River anadromous fish stocks. The SMP provides daily data on movement of smolts out of major river drainage and past the dams on the Snake and Columbia Rivers. Indices of migration strength and migration timing result for the run-at-large at key monitoring sites. In addition, marked smolts from hatcheries, traps, and dams provide measures of smolt speed and in-river survival through key index reaches. Fish quality, descaling and gas bubble trauma measures are taken on samples of fish collected at each monitoring site supplying indicators of the health of the run. The Program affords real time fish passage data to fishery management entities and the hydroelectric power system mangers, which they utilize in day-to-day river operations decisions. The SMP provides a continuous long term fish passage database which is utilized in year to year comparisons of smolt travel time, passage timing, passage duration, dissolved gas bubble trauma symptoms, juvenile survival estimates, relative to annual fish passage conditions and hydrosystem operations. The SMP will furnish data useful in the development of future long-term mitigation measures.
