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


Biological Outcomes of this project: Identification of watersheds with sub-par adult-to-smolt survival with recommendations for additional research to determine limiting factors or remedial actions necessary. Identification of smolt-to-adult survival rates for spring and summer chinook salmon and steelhead by route of migration through the hydrosystem and recommendations on how to maximize survival under the current configuration. Monitoring of spring and summer chinook salmon and steelhead populations: parr densities, smolt production, adult productivity, population age structure, escapement.
Biological Data: smolts per redd, habitat quality parameters, smolt-to-adult return rates, parr densities, age composition, redd counts

Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1984 The general parr monitoring database was started in 1984 and continues today. It represents the most comprehensive salmon and steelhead database in Idaho and is the only long-term database for steelhead.
1985 Documented the relative success of instream structures versus off-channel habitat development to increase parr production.
1988 Increased chinook and steelhead parr production by over 135,000 fish following habitat improvements.
1988 Identified factors affecting survival of chinook and steelhead parr.
1988 Estimated chinook egg-to-parr survival in the headwaters of the Salmon River and Crooked River.
1988 Estimated chinook egg-to-parr survival of fish supplemented by different methods (e.g. adult outplants, fry releases, egg outplants).
1988 Estimated survival impacts due to irrigation diversions.
1989 Estimated seeding level for A-run and B-run steelhead in specific rearing areas.
1992 Identified differences in peak arrival time to Lower Granite dam between hatchery and wild chinook.
1993 Determined release strategies for hatchery chinook smolts and adults to increase survival and production.
1994 Documented adult chinook and steelhead escapement to three pristine wilderness streams during 1994-1996.
1997 Identified decreased survival associated with multiple collection and bypass.
1997 Verified PATH chinook salmon smolt-to-adult recovery goals with Snake River basin smolts/female estimates.
1998 Completed model for estimating smolt-to-adult return rate by migration route.
