NMFS and BPA did not associate any reasonable and prudent alternatives with this project proposal


Biological Outcomes of this project: The recovery data collected from these marked fish are expected to be used to evaluate hatchery production with the intent of improving the biological performance of the hatchery fish, and reducing biological effects of the hatchery programs on wild fish (straying, harvest impacts).
Biological Data: CWT recovery data include date of capture, recovery site, length and/or weight, and estimated number of fish represented by the individual tagged fish. In addition, the tag code provides the link to the release information, including hatchery of origin, release site, release date(s), brood year, stock, number released, etc. Recovery of CWT hatchery fish in areas they were not intended to return to indicates which specific hatchery release contributed to the straying. This information can then be used to compare, and alter, hatchery practices. Harvest data from CWT hatchery fish are used to monitor and project harvest impacts on wild fish. Data from CWT hatchery fish (survival, harvest rate, catch distribution, age composition, etc.) are used to evaluate, and alter, hatchery programs to improve performance.

Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $2,179,728
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $2,019,673
% change from forecast 7.9%


Reason for change in estimated budget

1) COL BASIN: ODFW's increased costs reflect a 2% increase in salary plus step increases at 5%. In addition, two R-95 tube detectors are budgeted ($56,400 total) to meet the shift to electronic sampling for CWTs. WDFW added staff time to sample the lower Yakima R. Additional costs were incurred in switching the PSMFC employees from the state to the federal GS salary schedule. 2) OCEAN: PFMC added a commercial troll coho "selective" fishery in 2000, expanded troll fishing days, and added fishing time/area. Ocean sport coho salmon selective fisheries have expanded for both Columbia R. ocean area and the central coast area. Increased costs are for added seasonal port sampler time and to cover COLA's and salary adjustments. 3) PSMFC's Mark Center added a position (now 3 staff) in mid FY2000 to keep up with accelerating data management needs for integration of CWT information at the subbasin and subregion levels to meet Fish/Wildlife Program's emphasis on monitoring and evaluation.
