Short Description Apply coded-wire tags to production of coho and chinook salmon at WDFW Columbia Basin hatcheries for stock assessment of hatchery and wild populations. Evaluate survival, contribution and stray rates of hatchery reared fish and compare to wild fish.

Sponsor-Reported Relevant RPAs

Sponsor listed no RPAs for this project proposal

Relevant RPAs based upon NMFS & BPA Review

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

Biological Outcomes of this project: This marking program is not expected to have any direct biological effect on wild salmon and only minimal biological effect on the hatchery salmon (e.g., slightly lower survival rates than unmarked salmon). The monitoring data collected from these marked fish is expected to be used to evaluate hatchery production, and be used to compare survival, distribution and straying trends with other marked groups in the Columbia Basin and west coast. These data will may lead to improvements in hatchery practices and biological performance of hatchery reared salmon and allow for monitoring of impacts of hatchery salmon on wild salmon (e.g., straying)
Biological Data: Currently there are tag return data from Washington, Oregon and Idaho which are stored in the PSMFC data base. These data include total recoveries from each tag group and location of recoveries (freshwater and marine). From these data assessment of hatchery fish performance is made and reported in annual reports submitted to BPA, and data are available on-line from PSMFC for use in other evaluations. Annual Reports compare performance of each tag group released at each hatchery. These data are provided to compare intra and inter-brood performance in the Basin. These data can be used to assess stray rates to determine if hatchery fish are impacting wild spawning populations.
