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


Biological Outcomes of this project: The smolt to adult return rate is expected to be equal to the Lyons Ferry Hatchery return rate of 0.269%. Each year 1345 adults may return above Lower Granite Dam as a result of these annual releases. Additional adults will return from subyearling releases above Lower Granite Dam. In 1999, a total of 1279 adults returned to Lower Granite Dam as a result of previous releases from the acclimation sites. The immediate goal of the project is to ensure that naturally spawning Snake River fall chinook salmon do not go extinct. Long term goals of the project are: 1. Increase the natural population of Snake River fall chinook spawning above Lower Granite Dam. 2. Sustain long-term preservation and genetic integrity of this population. 3. Keep the ecological and genetic impacts of non-target fish populations within acceptable limits. 4. Assist with the recovery of Snake River fall chinook to remove from ESA listing. 5. Provide harvest opportunities for tribal and non-tribal anglers.
Biological Data: All yearling releases are coded wire tagged and externally marked with a unique colored elastomer tag to identify their release site. Returning adult fall chinook salmon are tallied each year as they are passed above Lower Granite Dam. Fish that are identified as being released from the acclimation sites are passed upstream to spawn naturally. At the end of each return year, a stock composition report is prepared to account for the origin of all fall chinook trapped at or passed above Lower Granite Dam. Redd counts are conducted in spawning areas above Lower Granite Dam and carcasses recovered and identified by their release site. The monitoring and evaluation of yearling Snake River fall chinook released upstream of Lower Granite Dam is covered under BPA project 9801004. BPA projects 9403400 and 9801003 work closely with the fall chinook acclimation project in assessing restoration and spawning distribution of Snake River fall chinook.

1998 Pittsburg Landing operated, 124K yearlings released; Big Canyon operated, 61K yearlings released; Capt. John Rapids constructed and operated, 133K yearlings released. Adult return data not complete until 2002.
1998 A total of 464 adult fall chinook returned above Lower Granite Dam from previous acclimation site releases. A total of 263 fall chinook redds counted in the Snake and Clearwater Rivers
1999 Pittsburg Landing operated, 147K yearlings released; Big Canyon operated, 229K yearlings and 347K subyearlings released; Capt. John Rapids operated, 157K yearlings and 323K subyearlings released.
1999 A total of 1279 adult fall chinook returned to Lower Granite Dam from previous upstream releases at the three acclimation sites. A total of 552 fall chinook salmon redds were counted in the Snake and Clearwater Rivers.
2000 U.S. v Oregon, PAC estimates 2,461 fall chinook adults from acclimation releases above Lower Granite Dam will return to the Snake and Clearwater Rivers in 2000.
