Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Insure all ODFW Columbia Basin hatchery coho and chinook production releases have a representative CWT group included in the release. a. Review ODFW Columbia Basin hatchery production schedules to identify production releases, and identify tagging needs.
1. b. Coordinate with ODFW fish identification section to coded-wire tag the identified groups.
1. c. At least 1 month after tagging sample 500 fish from each CWT group for tag retention and adipose fin clip quality.
1. d. Collect release information and file CWT report for each group tagged under objective 1. Data is reported to PSMFC and available through their on-line computer database.
2. Recover coded-wire tags from snouts of fish tagged under Objective 1 and released during 1996 to 1999: (1997 brood coho; 1995 to 1997 brood chinook). a. Snouts are collected by region wide fishery sampling programs (including BPA project 8201300), at ODFW hatcheries, and on spawning ground surveys.
2. b. Transport snouts from ODFW hatcheries and spawning ground surveys to the ODFW Fish Identification section for tag recovery and decoding.
2. c. Compile and verify sampling and tag data. Report data to PSMFC, available through their on-line computer database.
3. Prepare annual report for all Oregon salmon hatcheries in the Columbia Basin.. a. Report results of coded-wire tagging and tag recovery in 2000.
3. b. Compile release and recovery information for all CWT groups released from Oregon Columbia Basin hatcheries.
3. c. Calculate percent survival, ocean catch distribution, and freshwater escapement for the last 5 completed brood years for all CWT groups released from Oregon Columbia Basin hatcheries.
4. Evaluate the technical, logistic, and biological feasibility of using alternative marking techniques to mark large numbers of juvenile salmon. a. Work with Northwest Marine Technology to coordinate the use of tagging equipment and to provide for training ODFW employees in elastomer visual implant tagging techniques. Acquire necessary equipment, tags, and other supplies.
4. b. Mark 75,000 juvenile coho salmon at Sandy hatchery with an elastomer visual implant tag placed in the jaw. This is the third and final year of this tagging at Sandy hatchery.
4. c. Coded-wire tag the 75,000 elastomer visual implant tagged juvenile coho salmon at Sandy hatchery. A control group of 25,000 fish will also be coded-wire tagged with a distinct tagcode under Objective 1.
4. d. Collect and record pre-release data pertaining to tag related mortality, fish size, tag retention, and tag visibility.
4. e. Collect and summarize data from returning coho marked under this objective in 1998. Prepare progress report covering tagging techniques, tag retention and visibility, and survival rates.
