Biological Outcomes of this project: Expected biological outcomes are described through hypotheses for the ISS research project. Two hypotheses correspond to Objective 1 (Objectives are described in Section 3). The first hypothesis states “Supplementation –augmentation of existing chinook populations in Idaho does not affect natural production.” The second hypothesis states “Supplementation-restoration utilizing existing hatchery stocks does not establish natural populations of chinook salmon in Idaho”. Two hypotheses also correspond to Objective 2. The first hypothesis states “Supplementation –augmentation of existing chinook populations in Idaho does not reduce productivity of target or adjacent populations below acceptable levels (e.g. replacement)”. The second hypothesis states “Supplementation does not lead to self-sustaining populations at some enhanced level (e.g. 50% increase in abundance maintained over time)”. Three hypotheses correspond to Objective 3. The first hypothesis states “Utilization of existing hatchery broodstocks in Idaho is not an effective strategy to supplement existing populations of chinook salmon within local or adjacent subbasins.” The second hypothesis states “Development of new, local broodstocks with known natural components for supplementation does not provide an advantage over utilization of existing hatchery broodstocks for supplementation within the local or adjacent subbasins”. The third hypothesis states “The effects of supplementation on natural production and productivity does not differ among life stages (parr, presmolt, smolt) of hatchery fish released”. There are no hypotheses for Objective 4. Rather, cooperators will develop guidelines and recommendations that will address risks, benefits and specific strategies for supplementation activities.
Biological Data: Pretreatment and post treatment juvenile and adult production data collected via screw traps and spawning ground surveys will be used to test hypotheses associated with Objective 1 (Objectives are described in Section 3). Genetic samples collected from adults, life history information, survival information (collected from PIT-tagging), spawner to recruitment relationships, eggs per spawner and straying information will be used to test hypotheses associated with Objective 2. Marked adult return data, age/length data, juvenile and adult production data and survival data based on life stage will be used to test hypotheses associated with Objective 3. We will use information from the results of hypothesis testing for Objectives 1,2,3 to develop supplementation guidelines and recommendations for Objective 4.
