1. YSIS (Yakima Species Interaction Studies) 1
2. Marking Studies
All of these Tasks represent as aspect of the Goals and Objectives of the YKFP
3. Genetic Management Framework
5. NIT Design; (New Innovative Treatment) one of two methods to be tested in YKFP.
The YKFP has been in the Fish and Wildlife plan since 1982. The Yakima phase of the Project initially included an all stock initiative. There sill remains an all stock initiative but not all at once. The Policy Group's preferred an all stock initiative. There still remains an all stock inititative but it will be implemented through a phase in process. The Policy Group's preferred alternative that's included within the FEIS is to implement the supplementation aspects for Spring Chinook and develop and implement a monitoring plan for the now released coho in the basin. The other stocks will be implemented through a tiering process. The Klickitat aspect of the Project currently is doing fishery surveys, population monitoring, habitat inventory, and engineering surveys of passage barriers in the Klickitat River watershed. This is consistent with the Preliminary Design Report.
Biological results achieved
Annual reports and technical papers
Annual report on trainees.
Specific measureable objectives
Train tribal personnel so they will have the necessary skills, knowledge, and techniques needed to fulfill key positions needed in the YKFP
Underlying assumptions or critical constraints
Brief schedule of activities
Four fish culturist working towards their Fishery Biologist Degree. Three are attending Central Washington University and one is attending the University of Washington. During school breaks these students work on YIN fish culture projects and do OJT as deemed necessary. A designated tribal biologist supervises these students, manages YIN fish enhancement projects, and trains with other agencies to gain further knowledge in the field of fish health.
Trained tribal personnel are needed to fulfill key positions that are needed in the YKFP.
Summary of expected outcome
We expect to have trained personnel ready to run and work on the YKFP.
