Relevant RPAs based upon NMFS & BPA Review

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


Biological Outcomes of this project: Measures of population viability, productivity, and life-history components of John Day River Basin spring chinook. Specifically, smolt-to-adult survival (SAR), recruits per spawner, number of straying spawners, and spawner escapement, distribution, sex ratio, and age structure.
Biological Data: Number of smolts PIT tagged during spring emigration period. Annual basin-wide redd and spawner counts, including lcations, within surveyed areas. Age composition and sex ratio of carcasses found during spawning ground surveys. Recruits per spawner. Proportion of natural spawners that are hatchery strays.

Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
1998 Conducted spawning ground surveys and estimated total number of adult spring chinook salmon redds and spawners in three forks (North, Middle, Mainstem) of the John Day River Basin.
1998 Sampled over 300 carcasses of spawned spring chinook salmon to determine sex and age. Determined age composition and sex ratio of recovered carcasses and documented strays of returning spring chinook spawners.
1999 Completed annual progress report.
1999 Conducted spawning ground surveys and estimated total number of adult spring chinook salmon redds and spawners in three forks (North, Middle, Mainstem) of the John Day River Basin. Determined age composition and sex ratio of recovered carcasses.
2000 Initiated PIT tagging of emigrating smolts.

Task-based Budget

Objective Task Duration in FYs Estimated 2001 cost Subcontractor
1. Estimate total number of spring chinook spawners returning to the John Day River subbasin. a. Conduct extensive spawning ground counts in addition to annual index surveys. 10 $ 20,971  
b. Conduct surveys throughout the range of available habitat to determine spawner distribution. 10 $ 10,486  
c. Conduct multiple surveys which temporally bracket the historic index counting time. 10 $ 6,886  
2. Determine sex ratio and age structure of returning spring chinook salmon spawners as well as proportion and origin of hatchery strays. a. Sex, identify any hatchery origin marks, and collect scales from carcasses recovered during surveys. 10 $ 2,649  
b. Analyze scales to determine age structure. Develop length-age relationships to classify fish that have unreadable scales and calculate sex ratios 10 $ 7,152  
c. Estimate proportion and origin of hatchery strays. 10 $ 795  
3. Determine adequacy of historic spring chinook index areas/counts for estimating spawner abundance. a. Determine proportion of spawning that occurs outside index areas in each major spawning stream and proportion of spawning that occurs after index surveys are conducted.. 10 $ 2,189  
b. Analyze spatial and temporal variability to assess adequacy of index counts to estimate escapement. 10 $ 6,567  
4. Estimate smolt-to-adult survival rates of spring chinook salmon. a. Collect emigrating spring chinook salmon smolts via seining and irrigation bypass traps and insert PIT tags into approximately 3,000 smolts.. 5 $ 86,185  
b. Recover and/or detect PIT tags from returning spawners and spawner carcasses at spawning grounds. 5 $ 12,218  
c. Record PIT tag detection of returning adults at Columbia River dams and estimate smolt-to-adult survival rates based on PIT tag returns.. 5 $ 959
