2013 Annual Report: Genetic Assessment of Columbia River Stocks
This project combines four inter-related studies from the Accords Agreement that address the following current and future objectives: Objective 1) discover and evaluate SNP markers in salmon and steelhead and other anadromous fishes, Objective 2) expand and create genetic baselines for multiple species including Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), steelhead trout (O. mykiss), sockeye salmon and kokanee (O. nerka), and coho salmon (O. kisutch), Objective 3) implement GSI programs for mainstem Chinook salmon, sockeye salmon, and steelhead trout fisheries, and Objective 4) use GSI to estimate stock composition of fish passage at Bonneville Dam (steelhead trout, sockeye salmon, and Chinook salmon) and juvenile Pacific lamprey passage at Lower Granite Dam.
