Title:
Monitoring Recovery Trends in Key Spring Chinook Habitat Variables and Validation of Population Viability Indicators
Summary:
The proposal has two major components that are identified below:

1. Habitat degradation is attributed as a significant cause for the decline of numerous salmonid populations. The key objective of this proposal is to identify areas that have depressed populations within a sub-basin in the Columbia, and establish habitat conditions for these populations at different scales. Over the next 10 year period, various aspects of the habitat and fish populations will be inventoried, and treatment-control and before-after control impact (BACI) designs will be applied to both habitat conditions and population attributes (abundance and productivity) on these sub-basins.

2. The second phase of this project will be developed after baseline habitat data are collected and will focus on life cycle-based models for spring Chinook salmon. The approach used will develop life-cycle specific models to address life-history complexities, and intends to capture inter-annual variation in recruitment as a function of freshwater and early ocean/estuary variation. Based on data collected from the previous sections overlayed with life-history parameters, we will develop a quantitative modeling approach to estimate the annual variation in recruitment (and survival). This approach will probably use a collaborative effort with other agencies in the region (e.g., ODFW and NMFS) and tribes (e.g., CTUIR) that may have similar objectives.

Review: Fish Accord ISRP Review

Independent Scientific Review Panel Assessment

Assessment Number: 2009-004-00-ISRP-20100323
Project: 2009-004-00 - Monitoring Recovery Trends in Key Spring Chinook Habitat Variables and Validation of Population Viability Indicators
Review: Fish Accord ISRP Review
Completed Date: None
First Round ISRP Date: 7/27/2009
First Round ISRP Rating: Meets Scientific Review Criteria - In Part
First Round ISRP Comment:
• Objective 1, tasks 1.1 through 1.4 including the scoping, coordination, and planning tasks meet scientific review criteria
• Objective 1, task 1.5 and Objectives 2 through 5 do not meet scientific review criteria based on the information provided in the proposal – response requested

The ISRP requests a response to a number of questions regarding the methods used to measure habitat variables. We also request a more thorough explanation of how this study will associate improvements in habitat facilitated by restoration projects to improvements in the survival and production of various phases of spring Chinook life cycles in the upper Grande Ronde. Many of these questions are stated in 2. Objectives, Work Elements, and Methods, summarized below. The study objectives and methods are ambitious, and the ISRP requests answers to our questions so we can be confident that this important project will succeed.

Additional scoping planning is necessary to guide the selection of particular variables to be measured, sampling design, field installations, equipment to be purchased, and where and when it will be installed. The ISRP does not see how it can be determined what equipment should be bought without this additional scoping and planning. Equipment should not be purchased under one objective when under the same objective funding is requested for “planning to plan” on how much equipment will be eventually needed. Based on this rationale, and given that most of the planning and critical literature review has not been done, only those aspects of the objectives involving actual scoping (i.e., “planning to plan”), planning, coordination, and literature review seem appropriate at this time. Following this scoping/planning phase when the project design has been more thoroughly formulated, the appropriate needs for equipment and facilities could then be identified and requested. Tasks 1.1 through 1.4 are thus appropriate and meet scientific criteria. Tasks 1.5 and the other Objectives (2-5) do not (yet) meet scientific criteria. A clearly articulated basis should be described for the necessary work elements under those objectives.

Council Recommendation

Assessment Number: 2009-004-00-NPCC-20110627
Project: 2009-004-00 - Monitoring Recovery Trends in Key Spring Chinook Habitat Variables and Validation of Population Viability Indicators
Review: RME / AP Category Review
Proposal: RMECAT-2009-004-00
Proposal State: Pending BPA Response
Approved Date: 6/10/2011
Recommendation: Fund (In Part)
Comments: See Programmatic issue #2. Implement through 2013 per Council decision Sept 22, 2010. Funding in 2014 and beyond based on ISRP and Council review of Phase 2 efforts.
Conditions:
Council Condition #1 Programmatic Issue: RMECAT #2 Habitat effectiveness monitoring and evaluation—.
Council Condition #2 Council decision on September 22, 2010. Based on the ISRP review (ISRP document 2009-33) and the current status of the project’s implementation, the Council recommends to Bonneville that the project continue its model building, as reviewed by the ISRP, but use actual (much of which it already has from FY 2009) rather than simulated data, and that implementation of the second phase of the project be based on a review by the ISRP prior to the 2014 field season.

Review: RME / AP Category Review
Proposal Number: RMECAT-2009-004-00
Completed Date: None
2008 FCRPS BiOp Workgroup Rating: Response Requested
Comments: BiOp Workgroup Comments: BPA has questions the use of CHaMP protocols the coordination with other proejcts in the sub-basin.

The BiOp RM&E Workgroups made the following determinations regarding the proposal's ability or need to support BiOp Research, Monitoring and Evaluation (RME) RPAs. If you have questions regarding these RPA association conclusions, please contact your BPA COTR and they will help clarify, or they will arrange further discussion with the appropriate RM&E Workgroup Leads. BiOp RPA associations for the proposed work are: (56.3)
All Questionable RPA Associations (57.5) and
All Deleted RPA Associations ( )
Proponent Response:

Recommendations for Implementing Research, Monitoring and Evaluation for the 2008 NOAA Fisheries FCRPS BiOp. Draft 2009.

RPA 56.3 -- Facilitate and participate in an ongoing collaboration process to develop a regional strategy
for limited habitat status and trend monitoring for key ESA fish populations.

In the Grande Ronde, limiting factors were listed as: Flow; Habitat diversity; Obstructions; Riparian/Off-Channel habitat; Water quality, sediment

In Catherine Creek, limiting factors were listed as: Flow; Habitat diversity; Obstructions; Riparian/Off-Channel habitat; Temperature.

The Upper Grande Ronde and Catherine Creek populations each have a 23% habitat gap.

RPA 57.5 Action agencies will convene a regional technical group to develop an initial set of relationships in FY2008, then annually
convene the group to expand and refine models relating habitat actions to ecosystem function and salmon survival by incorporating
research and monitoring results and other relevant information. (initiate in FY2008).

A core set of habitat metrics that need to be measured within the recommended populations will be generated based on IMW analyses,
Workgroup recommendations (from RPA 57.5), and regional discussions on monitoring needed to support high-level indicators (NWEIS and PNAMP). Those habitat metrics that have a strong relationship with population processes will be included in the core set of metrics. The habitat status and trend monitoring design should follow the GRTS-based, master-sample management tools whenever possible.

CRITFC comment (Dale McCullough): It seems appropriate that our habitat monitoring project in the Grande Ronde and Catherine Creek, using the Minam as a reference condition, is related to RPA 56.3. We are applying GRTS sampling design. However, our project is more that simply status and trend monitoring. We are developing a predictive model using key habitat variables to predict life cycle survival of spring chinook. We have made use of past subbasin plan evaluations of limiting factors and assessments leading to the Accords to identify critical variables to monitor and incorporate into our model. These variables are also consistent with those identified in this Council document on RPAs. Possibly RPA 57.5 hinges on whether CRITFC needs to be included in the Workgroup for this RPA. I will leave that to the discretion of BPA and consult with my COTR.  We have been coordinating with BPA, NOAA, and ODFW concerning application of the CHamP monitoring protocol to development of consisten region-wide status and trend data. We expect to be part of the workgroup involved in application and development of CHaMP methods given that we have considerable experience in monitoring to share with the group.
