Contract Description:
Project #2003-017-00 (Project) seeks to develop two novel monitoring and evaluation programs: (i) subbasin-scale pilot status and trend monitoring efforts for anadromous salmonids and their habitat in the Wenatchee, John Day and South Fork Salmon River subbasins, and (ii) effectiveness monitoring for suites of habitat restoration projects in selected watersheds within the three target subbasins.  This work – critical for implementing the 2000 NMFS FCRPS Biological Opinion (RPA Actions 180, 181, and 183) (BiOp) – builds on current status and trend monitoring programs within each of these subbasins.  Several regional and local organizations are funding and implementing these programs.  In short, this project will integrate existing and new monitoring and evaluation activities in three pilot subbasins to help ensure that provisions of the BiOp are satisfied.

This contract is one of several contracts that will implement this project.  The final report for this contract will contain data that will 1) be submitted to NOAA FISHERIES (also a contractor under this project) for use in a project level integrated Annual Report and 2) be submitted to BPA as a contract final report according to the terms of this contract.  

This contract covers a seven month period from 7/1/2007 to 1/31/2008.  This is a shorter period than the previous contract, which ran from 7/01/2006 through 6/30/07.  This shorter time period was at the request of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), and was agreed to by ISEMP, to make USFWS's reporting requirements and hiring schedules more efficient.  Subsequent contracts will be for a 12-month period.  In addition, the operation of the smolt trap is being funded by NOAA until the end of July, after which BPA funding will begin.  This is reflected in the start dates in the smolt trap work element, which are later than normal.

This Scope of Work (SOW) will enable the Bonneville Power Administration (Bonneville) to implement the Project in the Entiat River Subbasin with the objectives of (1) determining the effectiveness of restoration efforts in the Entiat River, (2) estimating spring Chinook salmon and steelhead smolt production, and (3) estimating life history parameters of spring Chinook and steelhead.  Specifically, within this SOW, the USFWS will achieve these objectives by 1) estimating the abundance and distribution of fish within the Entiat River Subbasin by conducting snorkeling surveys at 23 locations at restoration project sites, 2) estimating the smolt production of spring Chinook salmon and steelhead for the Entiat River Subbasin in 2007, and 3) estimating life history parameters of spring Chinook and steelhead by capturing and PIT tagging juvenile spring Chinook and steelhead.    

Technical methodologies for all work conducted under this SOW will follow protocols specified in the following document unless Upper Columbia Regional Technical Team and USFWS mutually agree to changes to these methodologies:
