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


Biological Outcomes of this project: 1) Reduce the demographic risks associated with the decline of native wild populations in the Lostine and upper Grande Ronde rivers and Catherine Creek. 2) Maintain genetic diversity of indigenous artificially propagated chinook populations. 3) Maintain genetic diversity of wild populations. 4) Develop indigenous broodstocks for Grande Ronde chinook hatchery program. 5) Assess captive broodstock program performance in achieving adult broodstock, smolt production, adult return goals, and management objectives. 6) Determine optimum program operational criteria and technical approaches to ensure success of achieving objectives. 7) Assess the utility of captive broodstock programs for use in recovery of salmonids. 8) Produce an adequate number of eggs annually so that 150,000 Catherine Creek, Lostine River and upper Grande Ronde River stock smolts can be released into parent streams. 9) Determine and compare captive broodstock performance in seawater and freshwater environments.
Biological Data: 1. Annual estimates of wild and hatchery fish escapement to Catherine Creek and Lostine and Grande Ronde Rivers. 2. Spawning distribution and spawner composition in Catherine Creek, Lostine River and upper Grande Ronde River. 3. Survival rates for captive reared fish in seawater (Manchester) and freshwater (Bonneville Hatchery). 4. Genetic profiles for natural and hatchery fish. 5. Data to compare performance of captive brood in seawater and freshwater including: age at maturity; growth rates; fecundity; egg survival; disease history and profile; egg production, fry production, smolt production; egg and fry survival; survival and growth of F1 progeny. 6. In the future we will have juvenile migration performance, smolt-to-adult survival and life history data for freshwater and saltwater treatment groups.
