Project Summary

Project 1998-010-05 - Fall Chinook Acclimation Facilities on Snake/Clearwater Rivers
Project Number:
1998-010-05
Title:
Fall Chinook Acclimation Facilities on Snake/Clearwater Rivers
Summary:
This is a supplementation project; in that hatchery produced fish will be released into the natural spawning habitat in an effort to return a greater number of spawners and hence natural production. The stock selected for release is the only Snake River basin origin hatchery stock in the Pacific Northwest and the hatchery propagating the stock has been designated as a gene bank for Snake River fall Chinook. This is a long-term project, and will ultimately work towards achieving delisting goals established by NMFS.

Deliverables for this project include:
Acclimate and release 450,000 yearling smolts
Acclimate and release 1,400,000 sub-yearling smolts

Project: 1998-010-05 - Fall Chinook Acclimation Facilities on Snake/Clearwater Rivers
Review: RME / AP Category Review
Proposal Number: RMECAT-1998-010-05
Completed Date: 12/17/2010
Final Round ISRP Date: 12/17/2010
Final Round ISRP Rating: Meets Scientific Review Criteria
Final Round ISRP Comment:
This proposal requests funds for operations and maintenance of the acclimation facilities for fall Chinook salmon on the Snake/Clearwater Rivers (FCAP). Monitoring and evaluation of fish acclimated and released through this project occurs under companion the project 199801004 (Monitor and Evaluate Performance of Juvenile Snake River fall Chinook). The linkage between these projects is clearly presented. As a result, this project is primarily task-oriented and does not really have a research or M&E component. Like most other O&M plans, it does not really fit the format for detailed scientific review with the minimal level of methodological detail provided. The proposal meets criteria, however, when reviewed in conjunction with the companion project 199801004. ISRP comments under that project (199801004) apply toward this recommendation of meets criteria for this project.

Final Round ISRP Comment:
The original June 2006 assessment of the proposal was fairly succinct, "Funding for continuation of this project is contingent on submittal of an adequate response coordinated with the monitoring and evaluation proposal 199801004. As an O & M proposal for fish rearing, this proposal has enough information for review, but its technical merit is tied to the M & E proposal. Therefore, evaluation and adaptive management of this project is contingent on successful execution of project 199801004. This is a major activity. There should be better structuring of the relationships of exactly how the proposed actions will accomplish objectives." As a result, this recommendation is qualified in that a reasonable response and alteration of the proposal would bring this proposal into the fundable category

The authors basically chose a two-pronged strategy for their response back to he ISRP:

1. First, they directed the ISRP to "Please see the response to the ISRP comments on Project 19981004 - Monitor and Evaluate Performance of Juvenile Snake River Fall Chinook Salmon from Chinook Acclimation Facilities." This was a bad strategy because the sponsor's response to 199801004 was so woefully inadequate.

2. Second, they would have the ISRP ignore our earlier concerns via the following statement regarding the importance of their project: "As such, this project was identified by NOAA Fisheries as an important project in the 2000 Federal Columbia River Power System (FCRPS) BiOp and the 2004 FCRPS BiOp as part of the environmental baseline. Most recently, BPA identified this project as one of its ‘ESA implementation priorities' as well as one of the projects that "currently implement the Updated Proposed Action (UPA) and 2004 BiOp" (letter from Greg Delwiche to Rhonda Whiting, June 1, 2006)."
That is not a reason for the ISRP to dismiss its concerns, but it is a reason for the authors to work hard to address the ISRP concerns and improve the proposal.
