Biological Outcomes of this project: At the culmination of Project research in 2004, expected outcome is the demonstration that significant and sustainable, known stock fisheries can be implemented while allowing for rebuilding of weak and listed stocks. Optimal utilization of hatchery production is expected. The Project maximizes the on-site hatchery production through transfer of juveniles to off-site, net-pen acclimation/overwintering sites. Hatchery space can then be used for conservation/rebuilding programs. Increased fitness and survival for smolts released from net-pen acclimation sites is expected through rearing and release strategies. Fingerling to smolt survival is expected to be higher than at traditional hatcheries because estuarine rearing minimizes the catastrophic effect of flood and ice events common at hatcheries. Insignificant impacts to benthic organisms and water quality are anticipated from controlled estuarine net-pen rearing activities.
Biological Data: 1. Pre-project experimental net-pen rearing activities and Project Phase 1 results provide the data to model optimal utilization of hatchery production. 2. Fitness of smolts is determined by pathologic testing, condition factor sampling, and physiological measurements. 3. Hatchery records document juvenile loss associated with catastrophic events. 4. Water quality parameters and benthic species counts are indexed at all net-pen rearing locations. 5. Release data (species, size, time & site) is recorded. 6. Coded-wire tag recovery data from Project releases is analyzed to determine homing precision, harvest capabilities, and straying impacts on wild production. 7. Stock composition estimates for select area fisheries to measure catch of non local stocks utilizes coded-wire tag and visual stock identification sampling techniques.
