Description    


In 2010, Tribal staff monitored adult Chinook salmon using time-lapse videography. The images were reviewed at a later time and migrating adult Chinook salmon and other species were enumerated. Escapement to the video weir in 2010 was 1,212 (± 200). In 2011 plans include adding a 5ft rotary screw trap to the project for juvenile Chinook salmon and steelhead enumeration and PIT tagging.

Project Benefit    


Determine whether adult abundance in Middle Fork Major Population Group (MPG) is trending toward recovery goals.

          Description of monitoring
          The Tribes propose to coordinate with existing programs as describe in Section 5 of the Northwest Power and Conservation Council Salmon Sub-basin Plan and the Columbia River Basin Anadromous Fish Monitoring Strategy. The Chinook Salmon Adult Abundance Monitoring Project is related to several BPA funded projects within the Snake River basin. It is also related to several regional projects that deal with system-wide planning and monitoring activities and the Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund. The adult abundance performance measure is necessary for assessing whether ESA listed Chinook salmon meet recovery thresholds, is a candidate for delisting under the Endangered Species Act, or need further conservation actions. Resource managers need to realize with certainty that biological objectives and recovery thresholds and not being met.
