Annual reports and technical papers
Annual reports on file.
Specific measureable objectives
Statistically significant increases in hatchery kokanee catch rates over that of the past five years. Statistically significant increase in kokanee returns to hatchery over that of the past five years.
Adult fish numbers will increase due to better survival of kokanee fry at release.
Underlying assumptions or critical constraints
Kokanee move away from direct sunlight and become over crowded inside the hatchery.
Construct covers for the length of the raceways that are exposed to sunlight.
Brief schedule of activities
Mitigate for spawning habitat and rearing habitat lost due to construction and management of Al__eni Falls Dam.
Summary of expected outcome
Increased survival of hatchery reared kokanee.
Dependencies/opportunities for cooperation
