Short Description Complete modifications to Lyons Ferry Hatchery to conduct spring chinook captive broodstock program. Rear and spawn broodstock, raise their progeny and release 150,000 smolts into the Tucannon River to rebuild spring chinook run and prevent extinction.

Biological Outcomes of this project: For FY2001, very few biological outcomes are expected except for the possible collection of gametes (eggs) from 1997 brood year spawners. This will also provide the program with the first data to examine fecundities of mature females (3 year-olds), fertilization success, egg viability, and initial survival rates of their progeny. WDFW will continue to track survival and maturation rates on each brood year in captivity.
Biological Data: The data that will be available to measure biological outcomes are as follows: Survival of captive brood (for each year) will be determined from the starting population of each brood year and subtracting out mortalities and maturing fish. Eggs from each spawned female will be incubated separately to count the number of eggs, and mortality records will be kept for each female's eggs to determine fertilization success and viability. Following swim up of fry, all progeny will be mixed. Their survival will be compared each month to the supplementation (production) fish in the hatchery to determine if there are any obvious differences between survival of fish from captive brood or standard supplementation.

Total estimated budget

Total FY 2001 project cost $ 98,420
Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $ 98,420
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $ 75,000
% change from forecast 31.2%


Reason for change in estimated budget

The FY20001 Budget increased because of a shortfall in completing the capital construction for the project with FY2000 funds. Some of the necessary plumbing parts to complete the facility modifications were more costly than originally expected. Also, labor and transportation costs were higher than expected. The amount requested by WDFW in FY2001 for capital construction is $25,000. By subtracting that amount from the FY2001 proposal, the O&M and M&E portion of the project is $73,675, about 1,400 off the initial projected cost identified in the FY2000 project proposal.


Reason for change in scope

The scope of the project has not changed.
