Columbia River Chinook Salmon Stock Monitoring Project for Stocks Originating Above Bonneville Dam: Field Operations Guide (Revised)
The Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission (CRITFC) and its member tribes will conduct fieldwork to help implement the Pacific Salmon Treaty monitoring programs. The research will consist of two separate but related projects: stock identification and stock monitoring. This manual applies to the stock monitoring and describes rationales and methodologies for assessing spawning escapement of “indicator” Chinook stocks – stocks that federal, state, and tribal biologists believe are likely to reflect the effects of Treaty-imposed regulations through changes in escapements from the offshore fisheries.
