Short Description Protect anadromous salmonids from illegal take throughout the Columbia Basin -- with emphasis on conservation of depleted stocks. CRITFE will concentrate protection in the Zone 6 migration corridor (Bonneville to McNary dams) and focus on adult spawners.

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: Expected direct biological outcomes include: (1) Increased passage survival of adult salmonids during their upstream migration through the Columbia River with an emphasis in the hydro-power corridor of “Zone 6” (Zone 6 is CRITFE's core area of operation); (2) Increased protection of habitats of anadromous salmonids that are essential for passage, reproduction, and rearing -- including the downstream juvenile migration corridor; and (3) Increased life cycle survival of depleted species of endemic resident fish (e.g., white sturgeon and walleye) and protection of their essential habitats. Based on police science principles, we believe that the following public awareness outcomes will also translate into enhanced fish survival: (a) Increased public awareness of problems associated with illegal take and habitat degradation, increased public participation in reporting and deterring violations; (b) Increased deterrence for criminals and the general public in violating laws and rules and improved voluntary compliance with state, tribal and federal fish and wildlife protection laws.
Biological Data: 1. Historical baseline Zone 6 fisheries law enforcement input/output/outcome data; 2. Historical juvenile and adult salmonid passage data and fishery harvest data; 3. Historical adult salmon tributary escapement, hatchery rack returns, and inter-dam conversion rate data; 4. Historical critical habitat and passage facility data; 5. Current year baseline Zone 6 fisheries law enforcement input/output/outcome data; 6. Current year juvenile and adult salmonid passage data and fishery harvest data; 7. Current year adult salmon tributary escapement, hatchery rack returns, and inter-dam conversion rate data; 8. Current year critical habitat and passage facility data.

Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
2000 This is a new project implemented in May 2000; progress will be documented in Quarterly reports & annual reports.
1991 A related demonstration project was funded in 1991 -- for 1992-1997 that resulted in increased protection of depleted anadromous salmonid stocks throughout the Columbia basin (refer to Vigg 1991, 1995, 1997; Vigg and Stevens 1996; Peters et al 1997).
1992 BPA enhanced funding was used to hire additional CRITFE enforcement personnel commencing in 1992. This resulted in a 32% increase in field enforcement patrol effort (field patrol hours) above base-level funding (i.e., 1991 and previous years).
1993 Additional increases in 1993 resulted in a cumulative 45% increase in field patrol effort above the pre-1992 base-level; a "deterrent effect" was observed -- even though effort continued to increase, arrests decreased 49% from 93-93; seized nets declined
1994 The overall goal at this point in time was to create a deterrent effect on unlawful activities by utilizing highly visible enforcement patrols. Enforcement statistical data trends strongly indicated high levels of compliance in the Indian Treaty Fishery.
1995 Enforcement actions this year (compared to the first year of enhanced BPA funding) were as follows: Arrests were down 43%; net seizures were down 35%; and fish seizures were down 39%.
1996 A CRITFE 1992-96 Performance Evaluation (Steve Vigg, S.P. Cramer & Associates, August 1997) documented that Zone 6 enforcement activities were associated with biological benefits to anadromous salmonids and other fish species
1997 From 1992 thru 1997, tribal arrests have decreased by 59%. Tribal gillnet, setline and hoopnet seizures have decreased by 63%. From 1991 (before BPA enhanced funding) through 1997, patrol effort (expressed in actual field patrol hours) increased 70%.

Task-based Budget

Objective Task Duration in FYs Estimated 2001 cost Subcontractor
Objective 1. Adaptively manage the Columbia River Inter-Tribal fisheries enforcement project by making changes to the BPA performance plan, enforcement strategic plan, and evaluation study design - based on M&E results. Task 1.1. Revise the BPA statement of work and performance plan for FY 2002 -- based on the results of the M&E component during 2000-2001 implementation {see Objective 2 for implementation phase}. Annual update - 5 FY $ 1,720 x
Task 1.2. Update the CRITFE enforcement approach and Zone 6 enforcement strategic plan to respond to opportunities for FY 2002 project improvement -- based on the results of the M&E component during 2000-2001 {see Objective 5 implementation phase}. Annual update - 5 FY $ 1,290 x
Task 1.3. Refine performance measures that best fit CRITFE's mainstem Zone 6 fishery enforcement application and revise M&E study design, as needed - based on the results of the M&E component during 2000-2001 {see Objective 6 for implementation phase}. Annual update - 5 FY $ 1,290 x
