Contract Description:
Contract Description: The Integrated Status and Effectiveness Monitoring Program (ISEMP, 2003-017-00) is an ongoing collaborative effort to design, test, implement and evaluate Status and Trends Monitoring for salmon and steelhead populations and their habitat, and watershed-scale Effectiveness Monitoring for management actions impacting salmon and steelhead populations and habitat in the Interior Columbia River Basin.

ISEMP explicitly addresses work requirements of many 2008 FCRPS Biological Opinion RPAs (56.1, 56.2, 56.3, 57.1, 57.2, 57.3, 57.4, 57.5) and is directly related to additional 2008 FCRPS Biological Opinion implementation strategy requirements and recommendations. ISEMP takes a pilot-project approach to the research and development of monitoring by implementing experimental programs in several major subbasins of the Interior Columbia: the Wenatchee, Entiat, Methow, John Day, South Fork Salmon and Lemhi River basins. The overall goal of the project is to provide regional salmon management agencies with the data, information and tools necessary to design efficient and effective monitoring programs.

Specifically, ISEMP generates quantitative guidance on and examples of: the robustness and limitations of population and habitat monitoring protocols, indicators and metrics; sampling design approaches for the distribution of monitoring effort in time and space; analytical approaches to the evaluation of monitoring data, information and programs; effective data management and communication designs that support the use, standardization and compilation of implementation, compliance, status, trends and effectiveness monitoring data by regional data generators and decision makers; and finally the design and implementation of watershed-scale restoration actions to maximize both the biological impact and associated learning opportunities resulting from the design and implementation strategy.

Through its work to date, ISEMP has developed expertise in the coordination and implementation of large-scale monitoring data collection programs. Applying this experience, ISEMP coordinates the installation, maintenance and calibration of in-stream PIT tag arrays across the Snake River basin and is designing and coordinating the implementation of a Columbia River basin-wide stream habitat status and trends monitoring. These programmatic implementation facets of ISEMP leverage previous experience with logistics and social factors to effectively implement comprehensive, standardized monitoring research and development at an unprecedented scale.  

This contract is one of several contracts that will implement this project.  Each contract is responsible for an end of contract progress report.  Additionally, a project level "synthesis report" will also be produced under this project and data and analysis from this contract will be utilized in the production of that project level report.  The synthesis report is a deliverable under the TerraQua contract (not this contract) under this project.  

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 Scope of Work (SOW) will enable the Bonneville Power Administration (Bonneville) to implement the Project in the Entiat River Subbasin under an Intensively Monitored Watershed (IMW) framework 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 population, growth and survival of fish within the Entiat River Subbasin by conducting mark-recapture events at locations distributed along the river  2) estimating the smolt production of spring Chinook salmon and steelhead for the Entiat River Subbasin in 2012, and 3) estimating life history parameters of spring Chinook and steelhead by capturing and PIT tagging juvenile spring Chinook and steelhead.    Additionally, this contract allows the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to collaborate with ISEMP and other participating agencies (Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Yakama Nation) to conduct fish tagging surveys at status and trend sites in the Wenatchee and Entiat subbasins.  


Technical methodologies for snorkel surveys and smolt trap 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:
