Title:
Basinwide Supplementation Evaluation
Summary:
The goal of this project is to initiate a series of actions which support recommendations of the Ad Hoc Supplementation Workgroup (AHSWG) for a basinwide evaluation of the long term effects of hatchery supplementation on productivity of naturally spawning anadromous salmonid populations in the Columbia River basin (AHSWG 2008). The AHSWG used the widely accepted definition of supplementation provided by the Regional Assessment of Supplementation Project (RASP 1992):

"Supplementation is the use of artificial production in an attempt to maintain or increase natural production, while maintaining the long-term fitness of the target population and keeping the ecological and genetic impacts on non-target populations within specified biological limits."

The primary focus of the AHSWG (2008) recommendations is on acquisition and evaluation of more, and more reliable (accurate and precise), information on: a) trends in abundance and productivity of supplemented salmon and steelhead populations (Recommendation I, p. 3), and b) relative reproductive success (RRS) of naturally spawning salmon of natural origin versus hatchery origin within supplemented populations (Recommendation II, p. 24). Natural origin (NO) fish are defined as ones which are the product of a natural spawning that occurred in a stream. Hatchery origin (HO) fish are defined as those which are derived from artificially fertilized eggs which, generally speaking, were then incubated and the fry reared in a hatchery for some period. (HO fish could also include those which were artificially spawned and released as early as fertilized eggs or hatchlings, although this management option is infrequently used.)

The plan for Phase I of this project proposal covers only the first year of the 10-year period of the Accords (2008). Phase I includes four specific Project Objectives (with the total number of years projected for each Objective within the period of the Accords indicated in parentheses):
1) to use a Dual-Frequency Identification Sonars (DIDSONs) to obtain an estimate of the annual spawning escapement of the supplemented spring Chinook population upstream of the Castile Falls complex in the upper basin of the Klickitat River (4 years)
2) to complete development of a mark-recapture likelihood model which incorporates tag loss, including the uncertainty of the tag loss estimate, into the inference for population abundance (1 year)
3) to perform a relative reproductive success (RRS) study of NO versus HO salmon in a population associated with an ongoing supplementation monitoring and evaluation (M&E) program for which tissue samples have been collected but for which genetic analysis and estimation of RRS remains unfunded (10 years)
4) to perform RRS studies of NO versus HO salmon in four to five different populations which have been reintroduced (following extirpation of the native population) and supported through hatchery supplementation (10 years)

Proposal: RMECAT-2009-009-00
Proposal State: Pending BPA Response
Approved Date: 6/10/2011
Recommendation: Fund (Qualified)
Comments: Implement with condition through FY 2016 as per January 12, 2010 Council decision: Sponsor to address ISRP qualifications in contracting (ISRP document 2009-54).
Conditions:
Council Condition #1 This recommendation was made by the Council at its meeting on January 12, 2010. The ISRP (ISRP document 2009-54) found that the follow-up information regarding Objective 1 (i.e., Use Dual-Frequency Identification Sonar (DIDSON) to estimate natural escapement of spring Chinook salmon above Castile Falls, Klickitat River) meets scientific review criteria (qualified). The qualification addresses the need for the DIDSON results to be reviewed by the ISRP in three years, as it relates to a tool for estimating escapement for spring Chinook population upstream of the Castile Falls in the Klickitat River and elsewhere in the Columbia River Basin. This qualification can be addressed through contracting and be reviewed as part of future reviews.

Proponent Response:

In the RM&E section “Where will you post or publish the data your project generates?” I mistakenly checked the “NOT ELECTRONICALLY AVAILABLE” box – it should have been left blank (as were the other optional check-boxes).  Activities within this Project involve collection of two types of data.  The first involves acquisition of continuous hourly DIDSON sonar recordings at the upstream outlet of the Castile Falls Fishway in the Klickitat River, and subsequent reading of the files to note instances of upstream migration.  These counts of adult spring Chinook are used to produce an annual escapement estimate into the upper basin.  The second type of data is genotype information acquired for individual fish tissue samples analyzed for a suite of DNA (microsatellite) loci.  These samples are provided annually to CRITFC by various tribal and state agencies for adult and juvenile fish associated with a series of salmon supplementation or reintroduction/supplementation hatchery programs.  The genotype information is then used to identify parentage, followed by analyses to estimate relative reproductive success of hatchery versus natural origin fish.  Neither of these data set types concord with the options provided in this section of Taurus.  Therefore, I indicated immediately below under “Other”, the URL and Title for the web site at which our agency’s technical reports are posted.  As particular studies within the scope of the project are completed, technical reports are produced and posted to this web site.

 

Indeed, two reports for the Klickitat spring Chinook escapement studies (for 2009 and 2010) are already posted.  The raw data for the fish passage counts is provided in an Appendix to each report, and a compilation of the sonar video file clips of the associated fish passage events is also posted to the web site.  Copies of these reports were, of course, provided to the Yakama Nation collaborators/co-authors, and the reports are also posted as Attachments to the Project’s site within PISCES, with View Permission indicated as “Public (anyone can access via web)”; unfortunately, PISCES will not accept the video file.

 

Unlike the annual DIDSON escapement studies, the relative reproductive success studies are multi-year efforts, and summary reports will be produced only every few years.  The reports will be produced with co-authorship by representatives from the collaborating agencies, and posted in PISCES and in the CRITFC technical reports sites.  The first of these, concerning the reintroduced spring Chinook in the Hood River, will be produced later in 2011.  Results from these studies will also be summarized in written manuscripts for publication in scientific journals, as well as in oral slide presentations and posters for presentation at scientific meetings – copies of which will be included as attachments in PISCES.  The raw data sets of genotype information will be made available to the participating tribal and state agencies as well as the subsequent parentage and statistical analyses.  This information will also be made available to other interested persons upon request.
