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 the spring of 2001 and return as adults in 2002-2004. Return of adults to treatment streams from brood year 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. Supportive information includes parr density estimates, redd counts, spawning distribution and behavior, numbers of fish marked, and pathogen screening.

Objective Task Duration in FYs Estimated 2001 cost Subcontractor
1. Monitor and evaluate effects of supplementation on parr, pre smolt and smolt numbers and spawning escapements of naturally produced salmon. a. Use "standardized" spawning, rearing, marking, release protocols. 6 $ 0  
b. Mark hatchery supplementation and general production fish. 6 $ 2,520  
c. PIT tag 750 general hatchery production and 750 supplementation fish. 6 $ 5,560  
d. Release juvenile chinook salmon. 6 $ 0  
e. Estimate parr densities. 6 $ 5,883  
f. PIT tag minimum of 750 naturally produced parr from two treatment streams. 6 $ 6,804  
g. Collect and enumerate emigrating fish. 6 $ 19,929  
h. Count returning adults using weirs, redd walks and carcass surveys. 6 $ 8,657  
2. Monitor and evaluate changes in natural productivity and genetic composition of target and adjacent populations following supplementation. a. Collect and enumerate parr, pre smolt and smolt. 6 $ 20,740  
b. Collect tissue samples for DNA analysis. 6 $ 3,764  
c. Monitor straying of supplementation adults with weirs, carcass surveys, radio telemetry. 6 $ 14,250  
d. Determine spawner recruitment based on parr and smolt numbers, adult escapement, redd surveys, radio telemetry. 6 $ 9,300  
3. Determine which supplementation strategies (both brood stock and release stage) provide the quickest and highest response in natural production without adverse effects on productivity. a. Monitor production (count number of pre smolt, smolt and adults), and productivity (survival, life stage characteristics, straying, genetic composition) of supplemented population. 6 $ 25,153  
b. Spawn local brood stocks with known natural component. 6 $ 7,272  
c. Compare natural production and productivity between first and second generations. 6 $ 4,908  
4. Develop supplementation recommendations. (Long term). a. Address risks and benefits in general and specific brood stock and release strategies. 2 $ 0
