Short Description Using radiotelemetry and tagged lampreys, we will determine timing and movement patterns of upstream migrating Pacific lampreys. Overwintering and spawning habitats of Pacific lampreys in the John Day River Basin will be characterized.

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: Migration behavior and timing of Pacific lampreys in the Columbia River basin, including timing of movement into tributaries, rate of movement in tributaries and habitat preferences during migration will be described. Pacific lamprey overwintering and spawning habitat preferences will be quantified. This will provide a means to assess the suitability of available habitat and help to establish goals for recovery projects. Data collected during this study will be useful in the implementation and evaluation of the proposed restoration of Pacific lampreys in the Umatilla River since the John Day River basin shares certain characteristics with the Umatilla River basin.
Biological Data: No data are available to describe the timing of migration or habitat use by Pacific lampreys in the John Day River.

Reason for change in estimated budget

For FY 2000, we modified our original proposal to accommodate reduced funding and revised schedule under the "innovative project" category. We have borrowed some equipment (telemetry receivers, etc). Since we cannot borrow these items after March 2001, the FY 2001 budget reflects the cost of purchasing these items. Since evidence suggests Pacific lamprey spawn from May – June, we will not be able to examine spawning behavior and habitat preferences without additional funding that will allow us to purchase telemetry equipment dedicated to this project.


Reason for change in scope

In FY 2000, we changed our proposal to conform to the "innovative project" constraints. With only one year of limited funding we had to limit our objectives to the identification of fall and winter habitat use by upstream migrating Pacific lampreys. Since evidence suggests Pacific lamprey spawn from May – June, and the current contract expires in April, we would not be able to examine spawning behavior and habitat preferences as we proposed originally. Thus, we propose a change in scope of the project to allow our original objectives to be addressed. Due to the reduced funding level and late start in FY 2000, we also propose to extend the project's duration a year to allow two seasons of data collection and sufficient time to complete analysis and writing.
