Biological Outcomes of this project: The primary biological outcome for this project is the development of hatchery-produced eggs and fish to meet supplementation and future broodstock needs. Eggs and fish produced from annual spawning events are returned to the natural habitat over several release strategies. A portion of the production is held in the hatchery to initiate future broodstocks. To date, considerable effort has been directed at milt cryopreservation. By developing prudent spawning designs and by cryopreserving milt from unique program males, genetic conservation has become important biological outcome for this program. Supplementation of eggs and fish back to the habitat represents the most visible biological outcome for the program. To date, we estimate that over 160,000 program-produced smolts have successfully outmigrated from Stanley Basin waters.
Biological Data: Specific fish culture information (e.g., fecundity, fertilization success, survival, growth, etc) has been collected, evaluated and archived since the inception of the program in 1991. Spawning matrices are produced annually to identify unique program broodstocks and guide mating. Nuclear and mitochondrial DNA information for wild and program fish has been collected since 1991. Juvenile outmigration survival information has been collected since the inception of supplementation in 1994. Data are produced and evaluated for three rearing lakes and multiple release strategies.
