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


Biological Outcomes of this project: Although the primary focus of this project is to develop and evaluate a specific conservation methodology, an expected biological outcome is the conservation of three populations of upper Salmon River chinook salmon, which are part of the ESA-listed ESU. Demographic conservation of specific cohorts results from successful captive culture of progeny from an adult cohort to sexual maturation, and subsequent production of progeny from the matured cohort. We expect some level of genetic conservation is provided to the population since extinction of specific cohorts is avoided. These outcomes are realized if the captive reared cohorts contribute to future generations, and through cryopreserving semen from males.
Biological Data: Survival rates and numbers of captive reared fish surviving to sexual maturity. Reproductive success of sexually mature captive reared adults. Genetic profile of fish brought into the program and any progeny produced in captivity.

% change from forecast 2.3%


Reason for change in estimated budget

Annual costs for genetic analyses were not included in FY01 forecast from FY00. In addition to standard DNA analyses performed on all fish, a separate analysis must be performed to determine fish sex prior to sexual maturation for annual planning processes.

Comment:
The budget has increased since annual costs for genetic analyses were not included in FY01 forecast from FY00. In addition to standard DNA analyses performed on all fish, a separate analysis must be performed to determine fish sex prior to sexual maturation for annual planning processes. There is no change in scope of work.
