Section 1. Summary

Title of project
Refinement of Marking Methods for YKFP (Note: Project is closing and will not be seeking additional funds in 1998 and beyond)

BPA project number   9506401

Short description
Identify, evaluate and develop a suite of marking tags that can satisfy the needs of the YKFP. This task is critical to success of the YKFP.

Business name of agency, institution or organization requesting funding

Section 2. Goals

General

Section 3. Background

Stream area affected

History
The success of the YKFP relies on the ability to discriminate individual fish to one of eighteen treatment replicators while maintaining the ability to release captive fish at any point in their life history. This project will determine the best marking method to use in the YKFP.

Adaptive management implications
Will enable the YKFP to meet project objectives for benign recovery of data from individual fish.

Section 4. Purpose and methods

Specific measureable objectives
Recover marked fish reared in salt water net pens and examine for marks.

Critical uncertainties
A critical uncertainty identified in the YKFP Project Status Report is that a marking method is available that is benignly recoverable.

Biological need
Develop benignly recoverable marks to achieve experimental, ecological, and genetic objective of the YKFP.

Hypothesis to be tested
Marks are durable.

Methods
Survey only, no experimental applications proposed.

Section 5. Planned activities

Project completion date   1997

Constraints or factors that may cause schedule or budget changes
None, all biological developmental work has been completed using non-critical fish stocks.

Section 6. Outcomes, monitoring and evaluation

SUMMARY OF EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Expected performance of target population or quality change in land area affected
Description and selection of the marking/tagging method to be used in the YKFP.

MONITORING APPROACH
Survey only, no experimental applications proposed.
