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


Biological Outcomes of this project: Spring Chinook: The first returns from the 1997 Brood releases from the acclimation sites will be coming into the system. This will give information on the survival of the treatment pairs. All of the returning adults will be passed over Roza Dam and supplement the wild spawning population. The 1998 Brood releases will be monitored with a new version of the PIT tags. Coho: Improve smolt to adult survival and reproductive success of returning adults through use of acclimation facilities in the upper basin. Continue development of locally adapted broodstocks. Fall Chinook: Improve smolt to adult survival and reproductive success of returning adults through use of acclimation facilities in the lower basin. Continue development of locally adapted broodstocks. Continue to test smolt survival through early emigration from thermally accelerated growth profiles.
Biological Data: Downstream Pit tag information from the migration of smolts down the Columbia River, starting at Roza Dam on the Yakima River and continuing to Bonneville Dam. Adult video counting at Prosser Dam and video counts and adult collection at Roza Dam will be used to monitor spring chinook and coho.

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
$2,482,880
Comment:
Administrative staff (one bookkeeper and one office assistant) has been moved to YKFP's Management, Data, and Habitat Proposal (198812025). 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: 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. Full funding for this proposal in FY 2001: $2,482,880.

Background: This proposal has one initiative (objective)

  1. To operate and maintain fish production and research facilities critical to the Yakima/Klickitat Fisheries Project
The funding request under this proposal is $2,482,880. The proposal serves to support the O&M activities of the Cle Elum Supplementation and Research Facility (Spring Chinook) (Project No. 97-013-00) and the Lower Yakima River Supplementation and Research Complex (Coho and Fall Chinook) (Project No. 96-033-30). The two research centers operate under their respective Annual Operating Plans and budgets. Funding for both budgets will come from this proposal in 2001.

The recommended funding level for this proposal for FY 2001 is $2,482,880.

The budget request for this proposal appears reasonable given the level of effort and resources needed to accomplish the biological goals of these research and production facilities. The Cle Elum facility has a goal of releasing 810,000 Spring Chinook smolts annually from three acclimation sites. The current year (twelve month) budget for the Cle Elum complex is $1,530,161.

The Lower Yakima River complex operates in a "feasibility study" stage for supplementing Coho and Fall Chinook. The feasibility study stage is likely to last two to five years. During this time a range of alternatives for pursuing a supplementation program for these stocks will be reviewed by the Council through the Step Review process and under NEPA by performing a Supplemental EIS to the Final Yakima Fisheries Project EIS. Based on the current experimental design for the project, this complex has an interim goal for releasing 1,000,000 Coho smolts into the Yakima and Naches Rivers, with up to 500,000 coming from within basin broodstock. The balance will come from out of basin. The interim goal for Fall Chinook is to release 330,000 smolts into the mainstem Yakima River and 75,000 smolts into Marion Drain.

The effective current year (twelve month) budget for the Lower Yakima complex is $936,000.
