Short description
The Captive Broodstock Artificial Propagation program began in 1996 with the collection of juvenile chinook salmon from the Lostine River, Catherine Creek and the upper Grande Ronde River in the Grande Ronde River subbasin. This was done in an effort to preserve these native chinook salmon populations from extinction. Juveniles would be reared in captivity to adults and gametes stripped and raised to smolt size. Acclimated smolts would then be released into each stream in an attempt to preserve and recover the salmon population. Adult collection/holding and juvenile rearing/acclimation facilities on the Lostine River would be necessary for successful completion of the project.
