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 still remains an all stock initiative but nat all at once. The Policy Groupís preferred an all stock initiative. There still remains an all stock initiative but it will be implemented through a phase in process. The Policy Groupís preferred alternative thatís 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
The technicians were utilized to collect pre-supplementation data. This information will be used as a gauge to the effectiveness of supplementation and to assist in the adaptive management concept.
Annual reports and technical papers
The data collected by the technicians for pre-supplementation and post-supplementation will be used to guide the adaptive management concept.
Specific measureable objectives
Underlying assumptions or critical constraints
Brief schedule of activities
The 14 technicians will be used to assist in the collection of data for various Task Orders related to the on going needs of the YKFP.
The 14 technicians will be used in on going and future research/monitoring projects associated with YKFP.
Summary of expected outcome
The data collected by the 14 technicians will be used to monitor and evaluate the YKFP.
Dependencies/opportunities for cooperation
The technicians work with other contracting agencies ( WDF&W, NMFS and various private consultants) to collect data used in the implementation, evaluation and monitoring of the YKFP.
The data collected by the 14 technicians will be used as part of the monitoring process.
