Short Description Implements the captive broodstock project through the collection of juvenile salmon from the wild and maintaining them in captivity. The founding generation is spawned at maturity and the resulting F1 generation is released back to the parental stream.

Biological Outcomes of this project: The intent of the Grande Ronde captive broodstock program is to prevent imminent extirpation and enhance the chinook population without a phenotypic or genetic change to the original population. Specific expected research outcomes of the program include an evaluation of saltwater and freshwater adult rearing. Within the freshwater strategy, accelerated and normal growth regimes will also be compared. These rearing treatments are evaluated in terms of size, survival, disease, fecundity, fertility, sperm motility, sperm viability, spermaticrit values, egg size, egg survival, F1 juvenile performance according to treatment and genetic profiles of the founding population.
Biological Data: Monitoring of the captive broodstock throughout their captivity allows for a measure of comparison among treatment groups and across years. Data used to determine outcomes are collected at each step of the process. Parr collected from the wild are PIT tagged for individual identification and fork length and weight recorded. Caudal tissue is also collected for genetic analysis. During smoltification fish are transferred to either Bonneville Hatchery or Manchester Marine Laboratory where they are given a visual implant (VI) tag for further identification. Length, weight and survival are measured on a quarterly basis and at spawning. Maturation schedule and spawn timing are determined according to treatment. Eggs per female, ovum and male spermaticrit values are recorded during spawning. A random sample of embryos are used to estimate fertilzation rates. Percent sperm motility is visually estimated during cryopreservation activities. Eyed egg survival is determined during egg picking.

Reason for change in estimated budget

Indirect rate increased about 4%. The change in the estimated FY2001 budget represents a 3% inflationary increase across the budget, an increase in the number of management staff and associated salaries assigned to this budget and the inclusion of PIT tags in the budget total.
