Project 2003-060-00 - Evaluate the Relative Reproductive Success of Wild and Hatchery Origin Snake River Fall Chinook Spawners Upstream of Lower Granite Dam
Project Number:
2003-060-00
Title:
Evaluate the Relative Reproductive Success of Wild and Hatchery Origin Snake River Fall Chinook Spawners Upstream of Lower Granite Dam
Summary:
Recovery of ESA-listed Snake River fall Chinook depends on achieving abundance and productivity targets for the wild fish population. Current management activities promote hatchery fish spawning in upper mainstem areas as an attempt to increase natural production. We are using a genetic analysis to evaluate whether hatchery fish are contributing to natural production at levels expected based on their estimated abundance. We have found genetic differentiation between Snake River wild and hatchery-origin fall Chinook populations based on a series of samples from 1991 to 2003. We use admixture and assignment methods to test whether this differentiation can be applied to estimating wild and hatchery fish contributions to naturally produced progeny. Progeny are sampled as juveniles and adults. If wild and hatchery fish reproductive success is similar, then we expect contributions to progeny to be similar to proportions of each type on spawning grounds. We propose to continue and complete research activities for this on-going project during FY07-09. Sampling wild adults at Lower Granite dam was problematic and we have changed to sampling spawners in upper river. We obtain juvenile samples from a separate, related, on-going project. Our proposed work includes sampling hatchery and wild natural spawners in 2007, collecting microsatellite DNA genotype data for adults and juveniles sampled in 2006 to 2008, statistical data analyses, calculating relative reproductive contributions and comparing them to expectations, reporting, and discussing results with managers. Project work directly addresses several strategies under Objective 2A of the Snake River Hells Canyon Subbasin Management Plan.

Final Round ISRP Comment:
This is a good project that should be funded to completion through FY 2007, as apparently proposed. (The budget portion of the form is incomplete. If this is incorrect, the sponsors need to respond.)

Technical and scientific background: The first two sentences after the Abstract show the importance of this project to the region: "The contribution of hatchery-origin fish to natural production and population growth over time is the major issue our project is focused on. This issue is important for determining the role hatchery-produced fish can play in recovery of declining populations, and for managing hatchery production activities to minimize risks to wild populations." There is no clear mention, however, that one objective is to help refine the estimation of productivity for natural populations when the hatchery fraction is known, but their reproductive contribution is unknown.

Project history: There are abundant, and well described, results for a project that started in 2003. This project is making reasonable progress. At this time, the analysis of data collected is insufficient to determine whether the relative reproductive performances of fall Chinook can be estimated from the data.

Tasks (work elements) and methods: Work elements are sound and will answer the question of whether this approach can be used to estimate the hatchery contribution to natural Snake River fall Chinook production.

Information transfer: The principal investigators have published the findings of their work in peer-reviewed journals, made presentations at regional and national meetings, and briefed managers to inform decision making.

Benefits to focal species: Regardless of whether the reproductive contribution of hatchery Snake River fall Chinook is accurately estimated, a significant uncertainty will have been addressed, which will benefit the focal species.
