Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Monitor and evaluate the effects of supplementation on parr, presmolt and smolt numbers and spawning escapements of naturally produced salmon. a. Continue to implement "standardized" spawning, rearing, and marking and release protocols.
1. b. Differentially mark all hatchery supplementation and general production fish released in or nearby study streams.
1. c. PIT tag a minimum of 800 hatchery supplementation and general production fish released in or nearby study streams.
1. d. Release various life stages of chinook salmon. Determine fish numbers for each life stage based on existing natural production and natural rearing capacity.
1. e. Estimate late summer parr densities from snorkeling surveys.
1. f. Pit tag a minimum of 800 naturally produced parr from each treatment and control stream to estimate smolt production and survival.
1. g. Use existing weirs to collect, mark (PIT tag), and enumerate emigrating fish and to identify and enumerate returning adults.
1. h. Compare natural production of supplemented populations to unsupplemented populations and baseline data.
2. Monitor and evaluate changes in natural productivity and genetic composition of target and adjacent populations following supplementation a. Monitor productivity and genetic indices from supplemented populations and compare baseline and controls.
2. b. Monitor straying of hatchery supplementation fish into adjacent and control streams by weirs and carcass surveys.
2. c. Determine spawner to recruitment relationship based on determined production and productivity indices (parr and smolt numbers, adult escapements, survival, eggs/spawner etc.).
2. d. Predict population viability based on spawner to recruitment relationship to determine if the population will maintain itself through time in the absence of additional supplementation.
3. Determine which supplementation strategies (broodstock and release stage) provide the quickest and highest response in natural production without adverse effects on productivity. (Long Term) a. Monitor and evaluate natural production (presmolt, smolt and adult numbers) and productivity (survival, life stage characteristics, pathogens, straying, genetic composition) of supplemented populations and compare to baseline and controls.
3. b. Use local broodstocks with known natural component from the target population during the second generation of supplementation.
3. c. Compare natural production and productivity indices of supplemented populations using existing hatchery broodstocks (first generation) to populations using locally developed broodstocks (second generation).
3. d. Compare natural production and productivity indices among supplemented populations using parr, fall presmolt and smolt release strategies.
4. Develop Supplementation Recommendations. (Long Term) a. Guidelines and recommendations will be developed addressing risks and benefits of supplementation (augmentation and restoration) in general and specific supplementation strategies (broodstock and release stage).
4. b. Use local brood stocks with known natural component from the target population during the second generation of supplementation.

Reviews and Recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

ISRP Preliminary Review , ISRP 99-2 Recommendation:
Fund for one year
Date:
Jun 15, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Recommendation: Fund for one year. Subsequent funding contingent on a programmatic review of the supplementation effort in the Snake River Basin similar to the Lower Snake Compensation Plan symposium of February 1998.

Comments: This is the Nez Perce Tribe's portion of the Idaho supplementation study in Lolo, Eldorado, Newsome, Squaw, and Papoose creeks in the Clearwater Basin; and Slate Creek, Johnson Creek, Lake Creek, and the Secesh River in the Salmon River basin. The role of each stream is not described and readers are referred to the umbrella proposal (which explains the methods only at a general level). No progress is described to so no project assessment is possible, although the project (or its parent project) approaches ten years' duration. The project is basically the same as 8909800, and 8909801, except for facilities, budget, and personnel. Therefore it is unnecessary that the experimental design be reviewed as part of this proposal as it has already been developed and reviewed elsewhere.

[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
These projects provide a critical component for monitoring Spring and Summer chinook in Idaho, including supplemented and wild populations. These are ongoing critical projects and we recommend funding at the requested levels in order achieve management objectives in this region. See umbrella proposal #20545.
