Project Summary

Project 1998-010-03 - Spawning Distribution of Snake River Fall Chinook Salmon
Project Number:
1998-010-03
Title:
Spawning Distribution of Snake River Fall Chinook Salmon
Summary:
Monitor the status and distribution of fall Chinook in the Snake River using redd counts. Report results of all redd searches in the Snake River basin each year. Determine the number of redds constructed in the Snake River above Lower Granite Dam, summarize the data along with that from all redd searches conducted above the dam, and make it available to managers and researchers.

Completed Date: 10/6/2006
In Lieu Rating: Problems May Exist
Cost Share Rating: 3 - Does not appear reasonable
Comment: Monitor the status and distribution of fall Chinook in the Snake River using redd counts; fishery managers authorized/required to do; also other hydro operators (cost share here coming from IPCo); need confirmation that cost share sufficient.

Final Round ISRP Date: None
Final Round ISRP Rating: Meets Scientific Review Criteria (Qualified)
Final Round ISRP Comment:
The ISRP is not requesting a response, but qualifies this fundable recommendation because this is such a small activity or component of the Fish and Wildlife Program. It would be better if it was more clearly integrated into a larger project. Furthermore, sponsors do not justify sufficiently why this project is critical and how it fits into and relates to other projects. At a regional scale, it is not clear why this project should continue. How is this used and related to other projects? Does this project have application beyond this site? Can this approach be applied some other places at low cost?

Besides the usefulness of the method in this particular case, the method may have potential application elsewhere. A key factor would be to develop the ability to see redds in places not easily accessible. The project should not only emphasize current usage of the method but look for ways to improve the method so that the application could be more widespread. The project history was brief, with little development of past findings. The budget seems reasonable given the scope and potential value of the work.
