1 Snake Basin Hatchery And Harvest Management Coordination: Tools For Building Consensus

2 Lower Snake River Compensation Plan Program Idaho Power Company Settlement Agreement Kooskia – Federal Mitigation for water development projects Bonneville Power Administration The hatchery programs in the Snake Basin are producing fish to mitigate for the development and operation of the hydrosystem. As long as the dams are in place there is a legal obligation to provide fish.

7 Previous Management Paradigm Projection from Portland – U.S. vs. Oregon Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) Management plans developed independently from different jurisdictions Weak links between production and harvest management Little in-season adaptive management Management was reactive not proactive, often confrontational Assessment of management was post-season & agency specific In efficient management – High variance around harvest goals versus actual harvest – Imprecise estimates of ESA take – Poor utilization of hatchery excess

9 Recognize need for new paradigm Special impetus to implement based on large 2009 forecast and concern about efficiently focus on harvest and utilizing hatchery excess

10 Pre-disposition to Collaboration Tools at hand – Annual Operation Plans (AOP) – Representative sampling of all fisheries – PIT Tag Program – Collaborative hatchery database

11 Snake Basin Annual Operation Plans (AOP) Managers: FWS, ODFW, WDFW, IDFG, NPT, CTUIR, Sho-Ban – Clearwater AOP Dworshak, Kooskia, Clearwater, Red River, Crooked River, Powell, NPTH and satellites, Big Canyon, Coho – Northeast Oregon AOP Lookingglass, Lostine, UGR, Catherine Ck, Imnaha, Irrigon, Little Sheep, Deer Ck – Salmon AOP McCall, South Fork, JCAPE, Rapid River, Sawtooth, Pahsimeroi, Eagle, Niagra Springs, Hagerman, Magic Valley – Lyons Ferry AOP Lyons Ferry, Tucannon, Big Canyon, Captain Johns, Pittsburg Landing, Oxbow

12 Representative Sampling of Fisheries Weekly Strata In All Fisheries Estimates of: – Fishing Effort – Adipose Fin-clipped and Unclipped Fish Encountered Kept – Estimate of Mortalities to ESA listed natural fish Direct Take Incidental catch & release related mortalities – Estimates of Re-cycled Hatchery Fish Harvested

13 In-season Run Updates Representative PIT Tagging Program

14 Hatchery Data Management  Intended for all Snake Basin programs o States (ID, OR, WA) o Tribes (NPT, SBT, Umatilla) o Federal (USFWS) o Funding agencies (LSRCP, IPC)  Structure o Modular  Trapping  Events / Spawning  Rearing  Release o Designed for maximum detail (individual fish) but flexible enough to allow aggregated data.  Development status o Trapping module complete and in use o Spawning module in beta testing – in place in 2011 o Rearing and Release modules under development  Historic trapping data for all facilities nearing completion  Scheduled to be housed on a “neutral server”

15 What additional tools did we need? Common platform and forum for sharing info from these tools – Internet based data sharing platform –website – Shared data format and summary spread sheets for entire Snake Basin – Scheduled communication and planning Pre-season planning meeting Inseason weekly teleconference Post-season wrap up meeting

16 Forecast information Harvest share projections & likely fisheries Broodstock needs Escapement targets Plans for using fish in excess of broodstock needs Plans for back filling broodstock shortfalls Fisheries related logistics issues Fish hauling truck availability Port-a-potty placement Enforcement issues Pre-season planning meeting

17 In-season versus preseason projections Broodstock acquisition progress Natural spawner escapements Fisheries plans – opening and closures Harvest shares by fisheries Disposition and logistics of moving fish in excess of broodstock needs Enforcement issues In-season Weekly Teleconferences GoToMeeting.com

32 Previous management paradigm Projection from Portland – U.S. vs. Oregon Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) Management plans developed independently from different jurisdictions Weak links between production and fisheries management Little in-season adaptive management Management was reactive not proactive, often confrontational & assessment of management was post- season & agency specific Inefficient management – High variance around harvest versus harvest goals – Post season estimates of ESA take – Poor utilization of hatchery excess

33 Current Management Paradigm Projection from Snake basin to TAC Collaborative sharing of production and harvest plans Strong communication links and collaborative working relationships between production and management staff Shared data sets with common metrics Active in-season adaptive management Management is pro-active, not reactive & not as confrontational Tangible Management Improvements – More efficient use of all fish and better distribution of fisheries effort – Precise real time estimates of ESA take – Quality utilization of hatchery excess

34 Reduce implementation related conflicts and allow policy makers to focus on more substantive issues. Foster understanding of management issues and actions among folks in the “engine room”. Foster appreciation of challenges and efforts of technical staff by management. Transferability to other fisheries and other inter- jurisdictional management forums Long Term Intangibles
