Biological Outcomes of this project: Increased natural production of all species and stocks in the Yakima basin is the overall biological outcome expected from the YKFP. Because the Project is designed as a test of supplementation, certain core biological outcomes are expected to prevail throughout the life of the Project. One core biological outcome of the YKFP is to maintain the long-term genetic fitness of the wild and native salmonid populations. A second core biological outcome is to keep adverse ecological interactions within acceptable limits. The YKFP addresses these expectations through research, monitoring, and evaluation focusing on the following biological response variables: survival and reproductive success of hatchery fish after release from the hatchery; impacts of hatchery fish as they interact with non-target species and stocks; and, the effects of supplementation on the long-term genetic fitness of fish stocks.
Biological Data: SYSTEM WIDE: Prosser Dam adult migration counts, Roza dam adult migration counts, Chandler Canal juvenile outmigrant estimates, spawning ground surveys, tributary and mainstem Yakima population estimates of target and non-target species, bird and fish predation observations and survey data. GENETIC: Baseline surveys of each native species present in the basin by stock, allozyme and DNA characterization of all spring chinook spawners used in the Cle Elum Hatchery. CLE ELUM HATCHERY: Temperature, flows, water use, D.O., feed rates, growth rates, PIT tags, CWTs, adult holding mortality, juvenile rearing mortality, fecundity, family variation in survival, etc. BEHAVIORAL: Upper Yakima spring chinook natural spawning observation, juvenile predation experiments, ecological interactions including spring chinook, resident rainbow, steelhead, etc.

Reviews and Recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Ongoing Funding: yes; New Funding: no
Date:
Jul 14, 2000
2001
$260,000
Comment:
The budget has reduced due to refinement from expenditure history. The WA SRT is unable to provide a comprehensive review of this program using the project proposals submitted for BPA funding. A technical review should be performed in coordination with the annual program review currently being provided by YKFP.

BPA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Date:
Sep 8, 2000
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Recommendation: For FY 2001, it is our recommendation that funding for this project be reduced $60,000 to $200,000. At this level, there should be adequate funds for all necessary activities and there should not be any adverse impacts on WDFW's implementation of the YKFP. The CBFWA comments recommended a technical review be performed of this proposal during the Project Annual Review. We agree and also suggest that the proposal/project be reviewed as part of a Council Step Review of the YKFP.

Background: This proposal has two initiatives (objectives):

  1. Provide policy coordination and management oversight of the YKFP in cooperation with the Yakama Nation
  2. Provide technical and scientific coordination of the YKFP in cooperation with the Yakama Nation

The FY 2001 request is for $260,000. The FY 2000 request was for $275,000. Based on FY 2000 analysis of end of year un-obligated project balances, there is a balance of $185,000. This balance of funds could be either returned to the Anadromous Fish Placeholder or retained and credited toward a Council approved budget for 2001. (See explanation below.)

The recommended funding level for this proposal for FY 2001 is $200,000.

The activities funded under this proposal are an important element in the co-management of the YKFP. The CBFWA comments recommended a technical review be performed of this proposal during the Project Annual Review. We agree and also suggest that the proposal/project be reviewed as part of a Council Step Review of the YKFP. The level of expenditures under this project in 1999 (covering most of the period of FY 2000) was below plan in large part due to staff re-assignments at the Department level. The budget request for FY 2000 (August 2000 through July 2001) is $175,000. When the balance in the current contract budget period is accounted for, $89,980 of FY 2000 funds are needed to fully fund this project in FY 2000 (August 2000 through July 2001). As a result, $185,000 could be either returned to the Anadromous Fish Placeholder or retained and credited toward a Council approved budget for 2001.
