Biological Outcomes of this project: Specific to fiscal year 2001 activities, the expected biological outcomes are as follows. Release of up to 400,000 brood year 1999 supplementation brood stock progeny that will emigrate to the ocean in spring 2001 and return as adults in 2002 - 2004. Return of adults to treatment streams from brood years 1996 - 1998 supplementation releases. Most fish returning from supplementation releases will be released to supplement natural spawning populations in the respective treatment streams. Similar biological outcomes are expected in subsequent years. A biological outcome expected at the completion of the project is the rebuilding (or at least maintenance) of natural spawning populations in treatment streams.
Biological Data: Numbers of supplementation progeny released. Combined (supplementation plus natural) smolt production from treatment streams. Numbers of adult chinook salmon returning to treatment and control streams. Numbers of returning adult chinook salmon from supplementation releases.

Task-based Budget

Objective Task Duration in FYs Estimated 2001 cost Subcontractor
1. Monitor and evaluate the effects of supplementation on parr, presmolt and smolt numbers, and spawning escapements of naturally-produced populations. a. Continue to implement 'standardized' spawning, rearing, marking, and release protocols. 6 $ 17,863  
b. Differentially mark all hatchery supplementation and general production fish released in or nearby the study streams. 2 $ 19,065  
c. PIT tag a minimum of 500 hatchery supplementation and general production fish released in or nearby the study streams. 2 $ 54,352  
d. Release various life stages of chinook salmon. Determine fish numbers for each life stage based on existing natural production and natural rearing capacity. 6 $ 14,436  
e. Estimate late summer parr densities from snorkel surveys. 6 $125,145  
f. PIT tag a minimum of 700 naturally-produced parr from each treatment and control stream to estimate smolt production and survival. 6 $268,588  
g. Use existing weirs to collect, mark (PIT-tag), and enumerate emigrating fish and to identify and enumerate returning adults. 6 $ 68,837  
h. Compare natural production of supplemented populations to unsupplemented populations and baseline data. 6 $ 41,042  
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 an controls. Productivity characteristics will be evaluated as a function of density or percent carrying capacity. 6 $ 65,178  
b. Monitor straying of hatchery supplementation fish into adjacent and control streams by weirs and carcass surveys. 6 $ 58,839  
c. Determine spawner to recruitment relationship based on determined production and productivity indices (parr and smolt numbers, adult escapements, survival, eggs/spawners, etc.) 6 $ 42,559  
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. 6 $ 21,031  
3. Determines which supplementation strategies (broodstock and release stage) provide the quickest and highest responses in natural production without adverse effects on productivity. a. Monitor and evaluate natural production (presmolt, smolt, and adult numbers) and productivity of supplemented populations and compare to baseline and controls. 6 $ 53,484  
b. Use local brood stocks with known natural component from the target population during the second generation of supplementation. 1 $ 34,804  
c. Compare natural production and productivity indices of supplemented populations using existing hatchery brood stocks (first generation) to populations using locally developed brood stocks (second generation). 6 $ 34,598  
d. Compare natural production and productivity indices among supplemented populations using parr, presmolt, and smolt release strategies. 6 $ 27,333  
4. Information/Technology transfer. Develop supplementation recommendations (long-term). a. Participate in Technical Oversight Committee process. Guidelines and recommendations will be developed addressing risks and benefits of supplementation. 7 $ 27,846
