Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Assess the performance of hatchery and wild brood sources to reestablish steelhead in streams where extirpated. Evaluate the brood sources in a hatchery and natural stream environment. a. In stream: Outplant adults from each brood source into isolated and vacant habitat that is suitable for steelhead production using a paired watershed approach for three consecutive years. Study streams will be tributaries of the Salmon River upstream of t
1. b. In stream: Estimate parr production by snorkel surveys, trapping juvenile emigrants, and PIT-tagging.
1. c. In stream: Estimate the smolt yield and number of emigrants from each brood year in streams by trapping and from PIT-tag detections at mainstem dams.
1. d. In hatchery: Spawn and rear in the hatchery wild and hatchery brood sources for three consecutive years. Determine percent eye-up, survival, growth, health, and condition factor to the smolt stage of each brood source. Each brood source will be handled
1. e. In hatchery: Release PIT-tagged smolts at weir sites to coincide with natural smolt migration. Using PIT tag detections, measure travel time and estimate survival to Lower Granite Dam of outplanted smolts from each brood source.
1. f. In hatchery: Identify the brood source of adults returning to the weir. Compare smolt-to-adult survival, sex ratio, length, weight, age, fecundity, and timing of return of adults of each brood source.
1. g. Estimate recovery rates and the frequency of supplementation required to establish viable steelhead populations from results tasks a- f. Establish and maintain a library of supplementation research done elsewhere that will give insight into recovery and
2. Evaluate the ability of returning adults from hatchery smolt and fingerling releases to produce progeny in natural streams. a. Snorkel the South Fork Red River and Red River upstream of the South Fork Red River each summer to obtain baseline juvenile steelhead parr densities.
2. b. Stock 50,000 marked (45,000 with CWT and 5,00 PIT-tagged) fingerlings reared at Clearwater Hatchery into the South Fork Red River in early September for four consecutive years (done 1993 - 1996).
2. c. Stock 5,000 PIT-tagged smolts reared at Clearwater Hatchery into Red River in April, upstream of the South Fork Red River, for four consecutive years (1996 -1999). The lag between stocking smolts and fingerlings was planned so that most smolts from each
2. d. Operate the Red River weir to catch returning adult steelhead from 1997 - 2003. Determine the origin of adults and sex, measure length, and pass upstream.
2. e. Snorkel SF Red River and Red River yearly. Compare parr production per female of each group when adults return.
2. f. Estimate recovery rates and the frequency of supplementation required to establish viable steelhead populations from results tasks 1- 5.
3. Assess the abundance, habitat, and life history characteristics of existing wild steelhead populations in the Salmon and Clearwater river drainages. a. Use existing weirs and traps to document the timing, number, length, and age (from scale sampling) of wild juvenile steelhead in selected streams. We are PIT-tagging all steelhead juveniles > 75 mm at all ISS screw trap locations, Fish Creek, Boulder Cre
3. b. Estimate wild adult steelhead escapement in indicator streams. Record length of adults, sex ratio, age, and date of return. We are collecting this data from hatchery weir sites on Clear Creek, Rapid River, Pahsimeroi River, and the Salmon River at Sawto
3. c. Record temperature throughout the year in selected streams in the Salmon and Clearwater drainages. Presently, we are recording temperatures in 40 streams.
3. d. Snorkel streams that can serve as indicators of steelhead population within the major drainages. Fish Creek and Gedney Creek are being used as indicator streams for the Lochsa and Selway drainages, respectively.
3. e. Using the PIT-tagged fish from traps identified in task a estimate steelhead out-migration from each stream using mark-recapture methodologies, determine growth rate from recaptured fish, develop smolt migration timing through the mainstem Snake River usi
3. f. Collect wild juvenile steelhead from 50 streams to develop a genetic stock structure of Idaho steelhead populations.
4. Evaluate broodstock management at existing hatchery weirs in relation to IDFG natural production objectives. a. Review existing policy for passing adults and stocking hatchery fry, fingerlings, and smolts upstream of hatchery weirs. Monitor adult escapement, juvenile densities, and smolt production upstream of the weir sites.

Other Budget Explanation

Schedule Constraints: Because steelhead are now listed under ESA, we must obtain permits from NMFS to continue the research we began in 1993, however IDFG does not anticipate any restrictions of the research in progress. The lack of wild adult returns has prevented us from initiating Objective 1 as planned, however IDFG has outplanted hatchery adults as outlined in tasks a - c . We are viewing this as a “case study” to determine if the Sawtooth Hatchery stock can be used to re-establish steelhead in vacant habitat in the upper Salmon River drainage.

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 in Part
Date:
Jun 15, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Recommendation: Fund in part, but do not fund the new tasks related to the genetics subcontract due to lack of adequate review information. The proposal needs a better description of who the genetics subcontractor is and what they are going to do. The reviewers are not provided adequate description of the methods the subcontractor will use, let alone the subcontractor's qualifications. The proposal should be included in the programmatic review of supplementation.

Comments: The proposal describes plans to develop a genetic database for steelhead in Idaho. If approved, the study should be closely coordinated and developed with Project 8909600. Findings reported under 8909600 include statements regarding progress in steelhead genetics, but it is not clear how these findings were incorporated into the present study plan. How does this work fit in with the genetic work done by Waples et al.?

The project is difficult to evaluate and confusingly written. There are too many objectives, and the objectives have flip-flopped during the project's history—apparently without having any of the "experiments" brought to completion. Each component of the project should be submitted as a separate proposal and reviewed on its own merits. The project history contains detail on activities but less information on results and their interpretation. The information is not put into a context of application. The objectives and tasks are not specific to FY2000. For example, one objective is to assess the performance of hatchery and wild brood sources to reestablish steelhead in streams. The results of such a study will no doubt depend to some degree on the source of the hatchery fish. The proposal, however, does not test supplementation because the fish being used are hatchery stock, not wild stock. It was planned to use wild stock, but wild populations were too small to permit it. If the proposed project cannot test the real objective of supplementation, the development of a more abundant population of naturally spawning wild fish, why do it? To some extent, the project seems to be planned as a testing of traditional hatchery practice against supplementation, but not a test of supplementation against unassisted wild reproduction as should be the case. Is this "reintroduction?"

The proposal is not clear about the end point. There is no termination date for the work. The proposal includes a statement that it will continue until steelhead are restored. Since it was initially and subsequently approved with such a statement included, there seems to be little room for any new evaluation.

The project should be subjected to a rigorous review to assess progress to date, to evaluate, and to determine whether survival rates are sufficient to provide the statistical power required to meet project goals.

[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Fund. The sponsors adequately addressed the ISRP comments. The sponsor's Attachment 2 is very helpful. The project proposes genetic monitoring to see if genetic change occurs in supplemented natural populations. With interbreeding, there will be mixing of genetic material whether or not the monitoring program detects it. The appropriate questions and the questions that will be asked even if they show some change is - so what? Genetic assessment may prove valuable in tracking directions and amounts of interactions, however, long-term evaluation should focus on life history traits that are thought to be related to fitness and adaptation. Does supplementation cause a significant loss of production from natural habitats? Is that loss related to the method of supplementation? How much productivity loss in reproduction is likely in the long-term? And, how much productivity loss is acceptable?
