Section 2a: Description (Species Information)
Target Species fish
Oncorhynchus tshawytscha (chinook)

Provide explanations as to why the following alternative funding solutions are not feasible and will jeopardize the project:
Reduction in existing scope of project: Spring Chinook Salmon production has been approved at 125,000 smolts annually for FY07-09 as per Council's and ISRP's recommendations. BPA has not provided recommended funds sufficient to produce 125k smolt. As a result chinook smolt production has been reduced to 75k for 2008 release. Given current SAR's this may result in a failure to attain escapement and brood collectioin goals. We are requesting sufficient funds to restore our chinook production to 125k smolt for release in 2009.
Deferral of existing work elements to later date:

Section 2b: Description (Location Information)
Location(s) at which the action will be implemented
Latitude Longitude Location Description
44.693525 121.254297 Pelton-Round Butte Hatchery (Deschutes River, Oregon)

Is this/Are these the same study location(s) that was/were identified in the original proposal? Yes

Condition/situation creating the need for the modification:
Is the situation the result of a catastrophic event that occurred within the existing location? No
Has a habitat/population/mechanical/structural dilemma developed in the proposed study location since the contract was signed with BPA? No

Section 2c: Description (Work Element Information)
What work elements in the existing proposal does the proposed modification address?
Work Element Work Element Title
Produce Hatchery Fish Produce 125,000 Spring Chinook Smolts

Proposed action to achieve the objective(s) ODFW will require an additional $21,515 added to this project during FY 08 produce, mark and transport a total of 125,000 spring chinook smolts for release in the Hood River basin. Current funding is sufficient to produce only 75,000 chinook smolts.

Revised Budget Breakdown (23 Oct 2007 PT Lofy): Brood Year 07 *** FY08 Expenses, $16,120---- FY09 Expenses $5,395; Brood Year 08 *** FY09 Expenses, $16,120---- FY10 Expenses $5,395.


Does not implementing this modification jeopardize the ability to achieve existing biological objectives of this project, as well as other projects? Yes

Explain: The lack of adequate funding will prevent attainment of Biological Objectives 3 and 7 using a harvest and supplementation strategy as identified and approved in our FY07-09 proposal. Objective 7: Incubate and rear approximately 165,000 Deschutes/Hood River stock spring Chinook eggs at the Round Butte Fish Hatchery/Pelton Ladder to produce 125,000 smolts. Objective 3:Supplement the naturally spawning spring Chinook population with a hatchery program. Releasing only 75,000 smolt may prevent attainment of escapement, brood stock and harvest goals. Assuming a 0.03% SAR we can expect a return of only 225 adults. This will not be sufficient to meet our escapement goal of 100 adults and 150 brood not to mention any surplus available for harvest.
