Title:
Yakima River Operations and Maintenance (O&M) for Hatcheries and Acclimation Sites-Yakima/Klickitat Fisheries Project (YKFP)
Summary:
The Upper and Lower Yakima Supplementation and Research Facilities are maintained and operated by the Yakama Nation. The project is designed to rear and release 810,000 spring chinook smolts from three acclimation sites, determine the feasibility of re-establishing a naturally spawning coho population, test the application of supplementation principles to the two lower Yakima River fall chinook stocks, the mainstem and Marion Drain stocks.

Assessment Number: 1997-013-25-NPCC-20101116
Project: 1997-013-25 - Yakima River Operations and Maintenance (O&M) for Hatcheries and Acclimation Sites-Yakima/Klickitat Fisheries Project (YKFP)
Review: RME / AP Category Review
Proposal: RMECAT-1997-013-25
Proposal State: Pending BPA Response
Approved Date: 6/10/2011
Recommendation: Fund (Qualified)
Comments: Implement with conditions through 2016: Sponsor to address ISRP qualifications in 2012 contract. Implementation subject to regional hatchery effects evaluation process described in programmatic recommendation #4.
Conditions:
Council Condition #1 Programmatic Issue: RMECAT #4 Hatchery Effectiveness—subject to regional hatchery effects evaluation process
Council Condition #2 Qualifications: Specifically, we recommend that in the future the project use standardized calculations/metrics for determining impacts of supplementation, as presented in the Ad Hoc Supplementation Work Group reports and ISRP supplementation reports (e.g., incorrectly using total number of redds before and after supplementation efforts, rather than number of redds from wild spawned returning adults before and after treatment). The project needs to really assess response to supplementation of the wild population...and to do that, the calculations will need to include a method of estimating proportions of wild to hatchery fish in reference versus treatment streams. We also acknowledge that because of the sheer size and complexity of this project, it is not possible for any single reviewer to get his/her arms around it. As a group we wholeheartedly support the idea that future ISRP review efforts should be conducted in conjunction with the annual Yakama Nations' Fisheries Program Review, thereby taking advantage of that meeting's presentations and discussions.

Final Round ISRP Comment:
The ISRP reviewed the three YKFP projects as a set. The response for 199506325 is sufficient. See the ISRP comments under that proposal.
First Round ISRP Date: 10/18/2010
First Round ISRP Rating: Response Requested
First Round ISRP Comment:
The ISRP reviewed the three YKFP projects as a set. As a result, see the ISRP’s review of 199506325 for details on the request for a response. That project should be able to address the request in a coordinated response representing all three YKFP proposals.

Review: FY07-09 Solicitation Review
Approved Date: 10/23/2006
Recommendation: Fund
Comments: ISRP fundable qualified: ISRP recommends that the broader YKFP program be the subject of an organized program review. Project sponsor should consider focusing the next annual review for this purpose, otherwise review will need to occur as part of the next project review cycle. As Council has asked for in the past, a Master Plan is needed for fall chinook and coho elements of the project.

Comments specific to this O&M proposal:

This O&M project is identified as a crucial component of the broad YKFP project which mitigates for the federal power projects by supplementing populations and improving habitats. The YKFP O&M project specifically addresses the operation of three facilities critical to the YKFP's supplementation experiment (Cle Elum Facility [CEF], Prosser Fish Facility [PFF], and Marion Drain Facility [MDF]). These facilities handle the bulk of work associated with brood collection and husbandry, incubation and rearing, and acclimation and release for fall and spring Chinook and Coho. As specifically focused on CESRF, PFF, and MDF this project identifies its role within the broader YKFP. However, the broader rationale and significance needs to be described beyond the need for ongoing facilities O&M. More specifically, why the facilities need to be kept going is crucial in terms of the realized or potentially realized benefits of artificial production and supplementation.

The project history was mostly a listing of dollars spent.

The objectives are very brief, but this is all about simply producing fish. Lost are the overarching objectives about restoring wild runs and minimizing risks to native fish. Most of the Methods for the work elements are straightforward. While the earlier disagreements about specific wording in regard to 2x2 factorial breeding designs have been addressed in this version, the ISRP remains generally skeptical about the ability of a broad supplementation program at restoring or even maintaining population viability. That M&E is directly integrated will help to dispel this skepticism if natural productivity is demonstrated as a result of the program.

As the stated objectives are non-biological for this specific project, M&E are not amenable unless there is some actual habitat work being conducted (which is not obvious). As such there is no real science to review here, although review is doable for the broader program. Information transfer needs to occur for biological data (as well as coordination and planning) within the broader YKFP context.

While the facilities and personnel are appropriately large-scale (21+ personnel) at three major (+ satellite) facilities, the timeframe to reach some decisional nexus is not well described.

Comment: O&M and RM&E on Yakima hatchery-related efforts (Cle Elum, etc); need confirmation that no cost share needed (are activities being proposed that fishery managers authorized/required to perform?).
