Biological Outcomes of this project: Protection and rehabilitation of lampreys in part or the entire Columbia River basin requires several basic pieces of information. We must identify the distribution and abundance of the larval lampreys in the areas of interest to properly allocate the limited resources available for protection and rehabilitation. Establishing the condition of the lamprey population before any management changes are made is critical to evaluating the effectiveness of the strategies. This requires that we have a reliable procedure for identifying the three species of lampreys potentially present in their larval life stage. Our research will provide that tool, a key to larval lampreys in the Columbia River basin. In addition, the identification of habitats that might be suitable for rearing larval lampreys is important to the success of the program. Because temperature is an important factor influencing the early life stages of other species of lampreys, examining the influence of water temperature on the three species of lampreys in the basin is a logical starting point for habitat evaluation studies. Our study will provide guidance on the relative influence of water temperature as a limiting factor in survival of early life stages of lampreys.
Biological Data: Although some strategies for identification of larval lampreys are available, they have been shown to be unreliable by several researchers (including us).
