Short Description Determine if acute or chronic exposure to supersaturated water caused by spill during hydropower operations reduces reproductive success of adult salmonids by reducing fecundity, fertilization success or embryo viability.

Reasonable and Prudent Alternatives (RPAs)

Sponsor-Reported Relevant RPAs

Sponsor listed no RPAs for this project proposal

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: Depending on the results of these studies managers can decide that either: (1) controlled spill has no effect on reproduction of adult salmon and no changes to the spill program are necessary, (2) reproduction of adult salmon is not affected until TDGS exceeds levels created by current spill levels, and so spill can be increased, or (3) adult salmon are susceptible to TDGS created with the current spill, so spill needs to be reduced. Biologically, outcome number 1 will have no effect, outcome number 2 could increase survival of migrating juvenile salmon, and outcome number 3 could result in reduced survival of emigrants, but an increase in reproductive potential of adult migrants.
Biological Data: There are no data available.

Section 2. Past Accomplishments

Year Accomplishment
2000 This is the first year of this study. In FY2000 we will determine the effects of 115, 120, 125, and 130% TDGS on reproductive potential in spring chinook salmon

Task-based Budget

Objective Task Duration in FYs Estimated 2001 cost Subcontractor
Objective 1. Determine the effects of acute exposure to various TDGS levels on the fecundity of adult steelhead or sockeye salmon. Task 1. a. Expose adult salmon to various levels of TDGS. We will stock 8 to 12 adult female salmon into tanks where they will be exposed to 115, 120, 125, or 130% TDGS. Fish will be tagged and returned to general hatchery population . 1 $ 56,553  
Objective 1 Task 1. b. Determine the effect of TDGS on fecundity, gonadosomatic index (GSI), and egg quality of steelhead or sockeye salmon. 1 $ 17,967  
Objective 2. Determine the effects of chronic, in-river exposure to TDGS on fecundity of steelhead or sockeye salmon. Task 2. a. Develop migratory scenarios based on available radio telemetry and archive tag studies (Dr. Ted Bjornn, USGS). Scenarios will include travel time between dams, depth and depth-compensated TDGS, and water temp. 1 $ 10,012  
Objective 2. Task2. b. Expose adult steelhead or sockeye salmon to chronic TDGS based on scenarios developed in Task 2.a. 1 $ 30,750  
Objective 2. Task 2. c Determine the effect of chronic TDGS on fecundity, gonadosomatic index (GSI), and egg quality of steelhead or sockeye salmon. 1 $ 7,879  
Objective 3. Determine the impact of maternal exposure to acute (Objective 1) and chronic (Objective 2) TDGS on fertilization and short term survival of progeny of steelhead or sockeye salmon. Task 3. a. Determine the fertilization rate for all experimental fish in Objectives 1 & 2. All eggs from a treatment female will be kept in an individual tray and dead eggs (i.e., those not fertilized) will be enumerated. 1 $ 7,425  
Objective 3 Task 3. b. Determine the short-term survival of progeny of all experimental fish in Objectives 1 & 2. 1 $ 7,669  
Objective 4 Task 4. a. Determine the total impact of TDGS on reproductive success of steelhead or sockeye salmon by comparing data collected on fish exposed to TDGS to that of fish handled but not exposed to TDGS and to fish in the general hatchery population. 1 $ 18,136

FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $848,533
% change from forecast -81.6%


Reason for change in estimated budget

Objective 1 of the original proposal (radiotelemetry with depth tags) has been dropped.


Reason for change in scope

The COE is funding another investigator to do this work.
