Project 2020-001-00 - Piscivorous Fish Status and Tren Monitoring in the Columbia River Upstream of McNary Dam
Project Number:
2020-001-00
Title:
Piscivorous Fish Status and Tren Monitoring in the Columbia River Upstream of McNary Dam
Summary:
Temporal and spatial predator-prey overlap and consequential predatory impacts on juvenile anadromous salmonids is becoming a major source of their mortality in sections of the Columbia River (Erhardt et al. 2018; McMichael 2018). Currently, 51% of non-native species in the upper Columbia River are piscivores and have negative impacts on native salmonids and on the Columbia River food webs (ISAB 2011; Naiman et al. 2012). Currently, fish predator abundance and population trends, and juvenile salmonid consumption estimates upstream of McNary Dam are not well understood. The objective of this study is to determine the status and trend of non-native fish predator density and abundance upstream of McNary Dam in the mainstem Columbia River. Under an adaptive management approach, predator population abundance and growth rates will be monitored and used to evaluate the effectiveness of current (i.e., deregulating harvest) and future management actions designed to increase juvenile salmon survival, with the ability to identify significant changes in predator population status over time and space.
