Biological Outcomes of this project: The expected biological outcomes include relative abundance of juvenile Pacific lamprey in the S.F. Clearwater River drainage that can be associated with adult passage at Lower Granite Dam, and locations and descriptions of preferred habitat for juvenile rearing and adult spawning. Knowledge of the distribution of Pacific lamprey juveniles in the drainage will help us understand how this species utilizes specific streams and available habitats. Without this knowledge, preservation of critical habitat may be lost. With known life history distribution and habitat use, strategies to protect critical areas from impacts caused by land management activities (grazing, mining, silviculture) can be developed In addition, habitat restoration plans to enhance the quality and quantity of lamprey habitat in the drainage can be developed. Protection and enhancement of juvenile rearing and adult spawning habitat will allow for population numbers to maintain.
Biological Data: Data that have importance to describe migrational timing and relative abundance of migratory lamprey will be the daily catch by rotary screen traps on Red and American rivers and relative density numbers by habitat type in these two river systems. Relative abundance of migrants will be determined by mark/recapture techniques. Juvenile rearing locations will be determined by electroshocking a variety of instream habitats. At the capture sites the following habitat descriptors will be noted and measured; substrate, type, substrate temperature, water temperature, water depth, water velocity, gradient, instream and riparian cover, and light intensity. Critical and preferred habitat will be described by these parameters.

Objective Task Duration in FYs Estimated 2001 cost Subcontractor
1. Determine life history characteristics of ammocoetes and macrothalmia 1.1 Determine age, size, and timing of outmigrant juveniles by collecting and measuring ammocoetes and macrothalmia in downstream floating rotary traps on Red and American rivers. 3 $ 10,873  
1.2 Determine relative abundance of outmigrants by marking juveniles prior to outmigration and at capture locations upstream of traps. 3 $ 10,873  
1.3 Determine age class distribution and density of ammocoetes and estimate population size by capturing lamprey juveniles utilizing electroshocking or other applicable methods. 3 $ 11,386  
1.4 Provide a maximum of 50 ammocoetes collected in Task 1.3 to the Columbia River Research Laboratory for rearing to transformation and genetic analysis 3 $ 979  
1.5 Coordinate with US Army Corps of Engineers, Washington Department of Fisheries, National Marine Fisheries Service and other personnel working at mainstem Snake River and Columbia River dams for information on any marked juvenile outmigrants. 3 $ 6,726  
2. Determine Pacific lamprey habitat requirements in the Clearwater River basin. 2.1 Sampling locations will be the same as those utilized in Task 1.3. Habitat parameters to be measured include: substrate type, substrate temperature, water depth, water velocity, water temperature, gradient, cover and light intensity. 3 $ 10,861  
2.2 On random encounter of any adult lamprey, all parameters described in Task 2.1 will be measured. 3 $ 10,349  
3. Document distribution of Pacific lamprey and habitat in S.F. Clearwater River 3.1 Coordinates will be recorded at each site of collection or observation and habitat measurement, and linked to GIS overlays. 3 $ 5,992  
4. Data analysis, coordination and data sharing 4.1 Coordinate activities with Pacific lamprey technical work group and other interested parties. 3 $ 6,344  
4.2 Data assimilation, analysis, and reporting. $ 10,179  
4.3 Coordinate activities with graduate program at University of Idaho. 3 $ 6,405 x

% change from forecast 24.6%


Reason for change in estimated budget

Reasons for increase in budget include projected inflationary increases, an increase in manpower-months and state legislated salary increases. The majority of the increase is a result of including 2 months of biologist's salary for the project. The original project proposal included 20 months of personnel time, but was reduced to 14 months for FY2000. The additional biologist time will provide better coordination with other agencies and the University of Idaho, and provide more manpower for field sampling.
