Project 2008-503-00 - Studies into Factors Limiting the Abundance of Okanagan and Wenatchee Sockeye Salmon
Project Number:
2008-503-00
Title:
Studies into Factors Limiting the Abundance of Okanagan and Wenatchee Sockeye Salmon
Summary:
This project seeks to expand our knowledge on the factors limiting production of Okanogan and Wenatchee sockeye salmon stocks. A primary factor affecting the Okanogan stock is believed to be survival upstream of Wells Dam. To quantify this mortality, has project has funded PIT tag detection antennas at McIntyre and Zosel dams on the Okanogan River as well as a Vertical Diversion Structure upstream of Osoyoos Lake (OKC). Sockeye are PIT tagged at the Bonneville Dam adult fish facility (as part of another MOA project, Upstream Migration Timing) as well as at Wells Dam fish ladder adult traps. Okanogan sockeye salmon mortality will be partitioned by reach upstream of Wells Dam and we hope to then be able to correlate survival with river and lake conditions, hopefully allowing survival to be increased through better Okanagan River management.

This project will also standardize smolt abundance estimation methodologies between the two stocks by conducting annual hydroacoustic surveys of Lake Wenatchee to compare with those being conducted in Osoyoos Lake. The project is also conducting limnological surveys in Lake Wenatchee, which, combined with the Wenatchee ATS will provide a better picture of the production potential of the lake. In addition the project is conducting an hydroacoustic survey of Okanagan Lake to provide baseline data on nerka (kokanee) production prior to the re-introduction of sockeye salmon to a lake that was, along with Arrow Lakes, the largest sockeye lake in the Columbia Basin.

The project also, in conjunction with Chelan and Grant PUDs, the ONA, and DFO, is conducting a paleolimnology study conducted by Queens University to look at historic sockeye production in Osoyoos, Skaha and Wenatchee lakes.

First Round ISRP Comment:
The information generated by the proposed PIT and acoustic tagging of Wenatchee and Okanagan sockeye salmon has the potential to contribute to management of these resources. However, the ISRP identifies a number of important challenges, listed below, that should be considered concurrent with implementation. These can be in addressed in the development of a final statement of work and study design and reported in future proposals.
