Section 3. Relationships to Other Projects

Project ID Title Description Umbrella
9201000 Habitat Restoration/Enhancement Fort Hall Reservation Provides conditions for re-introduction of native Yellowstone cutthroat trout on Fort Hall Reservation No


Section 4. Objectives, Tasks and Schedules

Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Surveys will be performed to identify pure populations of cutthroat trout and redband trout on the Fort Hall and Duck Valley Reservations, respectively. a. Electrofishing or snorkeling 60 + streams to visually identify pure strains of Yellowstone cutthroat and redband trout
1. b. Reference samples collected (fin clips) from 15-20 fish per population. Allozyme confirmation of reference sample identity.
1. c. Screen of introns to identify useful markers. Identification of pure populations of Yellowstone cutthroat and redband trout.
2. Protect habitat containing remaining pure populations of redband and/or cutthroat trout. a. Streams with pure populations of Yellowstone cutthroat protected from grazing influences with use of rest-rotation grazing and/or fencing.
3. Collect baseline data on characteristics of streams with remnant populations of native fishes. a. Survey for information on habitat types, pool-riffle ratios, slope, aspect, temperature, canopy, etc.
4. Select streams for re-introduction of native fishes. a. Survey for information on habitat types, pool-riffle ratios, slope, aspect, temperature, canopy, natural barriers, absence of non-native fishes.
4. a. Select streams for re-introduction based upon physical and biological characteristics and absence of non-native fishes.
5. Collect broodstock or gametes from those populations identified as being genetically pure Yellowstone Cutthroat trout and/or redband trout. a. Assess size of native fish populations; collect brood stock or gametes, depending upon population size (> than 2,000 - broodstock).
5. b. Test broodstock or gametes for disease before introduction into hatchery setting.
5. c. Maintenance of native broodstock in a hatchery setting.
6. Produce Yellowstone cutthroat, redband, and domestic rainbow trout. Specific numbers are stated in Tasks a-c. a. 48,000 10 "domestic rainbow trout catchables produced yearly for put-and-take fisheries in enclosed reservoirs. 8,000 10" Yellowstone cutthroat trout catchables produced yearly.
6. b. 350,000 eyed Yellowstone cutthroat trout eggs, and 8,000 10" catchables produced yearly.
6. c. 350,000 eyed redband trout eggs produced yearly.
7. Outplant domestic rainbow trout to enclosed terminal reservoirs. Specific objective: two put-and-take rainbow fisheries on Fort Hall and Duck Valley Reservations. a. Outplant 48,000 10" domestic rainbow to enclosed reservoirs on Duck Valley and Fort Hall Reservations. (outplants tested for disease)
7. b. New populations will be monitored yearly (snorkeling and/or electrofishing) to document survival, growth, and reproduction
7. c. Areas adjacent to put-and -take domestic rainbow fisheries will be monitored post release for any evidence of fish escaping enclosed areas.
8. Outplant eyed eggs to hatchboxes in select streams on the Fort Hall and Duck Valley Reservations. Specific objective: 20 self sustaining populations of native Yellowstone cutthroat and redband trout on Fort Hall and Duck Valley reservations. a. 700,000 eyed eggs outplanted using hatchboxes on Duck Valley and Fort Hall Reservations (outplants tested for disease).
8. b. Re-introductions will be monitored to determine when self-sustaining populations (> 300 spawning pairs yearly) have been established.
