Transcript

  • 1.
    • The Path Forward to Local Adaptation and Sustainability
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 2. Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 3.
    • Habitat
    • Hatcheries
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan Hatcheries Harvest Hydropower Factors Affecting Decline
  • 4. Factors affecting the biological status of Nisqually Chinook
    • Loss of critical habitat features.
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 5. Forestry
  • 6. Development
  • 7.  
  • 8. Factors affecting the biological status of Nisqually Chinook
    • Hydroelectric facilities historically caused dramatic changes in streamflow patterns .
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 9. Factors affecting the biological status of Nisqually Chinook
    • Introduction of outside genetics from hatcheries, outplanting.
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 10. Factors affecting the biological status of Nisqually Chinook
    • Decades of overfishing - fisheries not managed to
    • ensure natural production escapement until 2000.
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 11. Nisqually – resulting impacts on biological status of the stock
    • Probable extinction of wild native Nisqually Chinook genetics.
    • Current stock is not locally adapted, same genetics as hatchery stock.
    • Current habitat supports reduced productivity, capacity, and life history diversity.
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 12.
    • Nisqually Chinook Recovery Plan released in August 2001
    • Submitted to the regional Puget Sound Chinook Endangered Species Recovery Plan in 2005
    • Adopted as official plan by the federal govt. in 2007
    • Using adaptive management process the plan is updated yearly and resubmitted to the region and federal science panel for review
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 13. Strategy for Success : Outlines a path to meet 15 year, 50 year and 100 year goals
    • Integrated Approach:
    • Habitat Action Plan
    • Hatchery Operation Guidelines
    • Harvest Management
    4. Adaptive Management Strategy - plan is dynamic and flexible as new information is available, annual reports and meetings ensure continual reevaluation of the plan Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 14. Clear, specific stock goals
    • Based on biological status of the stock.
    • Based on specific community goals.
    • Make a significant contribution to recovery of ESU.
    • Clear prioritization of goals when they might be in conflict.
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 15. Nisqually Goals – long term (next 100 years)
    • Assure natural production of fall Chinook in perpetuity by providing high quality functioning habitat and by promoting the development of locally adapted, functioning populations.
    • Assure sustainable harvest opportunities.
    • Provide significant contributions to ecosystem functions
    • Secure and enhance natural production of all salmonids
    • Assure the economic, cultural, and social benefits are perpetually sustained.

  • 16. Priority Areas and Projects Estuary Restoration Mainstem Protection Ohop Restoration Mashel Restoration Hatchery Stray Reduction
  • 17. Goals Estuary Restoration (Acres) Mainstem Protection (% Protected) Ohop Restoration (Miles) Mashel Restoration (Miles) Hatchery Stray Reduction (% Hatchery Origin Strays) 10
  • 18. Hatchery Stray Reduction (% Hatchery Origin Strays) 10 10 Progress to Date Estuary Restoration (Acres) Mainstem Protection (% Protected) Ohop Restoration (Miles) Mashel Restoration (Miles) Goal Projected 900 1 5 Nisqually Priority Areas: Progress by end of 2011 2.5 0.5
  • 19. Nisqually Estuary Restoration: Over 900 acres restored since 2002 Nisqually Estuary March 2010 Nisqually Estuary June 2009

    • Result of this work – 60% increase in fall Chinook potential
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 26.
    • Since 2001 – colonization
      • Fully seed available habitat
      • Increase abundance and natural production
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 27.
    • We are now ready and committed to moving away from colonization to local adaptation
      • Require changes to harvest management
      • Effective operation of a weir
      • Modification of hatchery program to support natural population
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 28. Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan Nisqually Fall Chinook Terminal Area Management Plan January 2011 Prepared by the Nisqually Chinook Recovery Team
  • 29.
    • Framework contains three key elements:
      • Clear, specific conservation and harvest goals
      • Monitoring and Evaluation program
      • Annual process to review, adapt, and implement
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 30.
    • Conservation goals
      • Ensure natural production of fall Chinook by providing high quality habitat
      • Achieve a self-sustaining, locally adapted natural population
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 31.
    • Harvest goals
      • Terminal Treaty net fishery: 10,000-15,000 annual Chinook harvest
      • Ensure a sustainable sport fishing opportunity targeting hatchery fish
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 32.
    • Key Indicators
      • Habitat conditions
      • Abundance, distribution, and composition of escapement
      • Hatchery brood stock composition
      • Annual estimates of catch by all fisheries for hatchery and natural origin
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 33.
    • Management Action Response
      • Key to success: timely inclusion of information
      • Annual audit of key assumptions
      • Guide decisions and plan activities for coming year
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 34.
    • Nisqually Chinook Annual Review
      • Review previous year’s performance
      • Update and review status & trend analysis
      • Update key assumptions from M&E results
      • Apply the decision rules to generate targets for upcoming season
      • Develop annual action plan for harvest, hatcheries, and habitat
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 35.
    • Decision Rules
      • Harvest Management
        • Maintain high harvest rate on hatchery fish
        • Reduce terminal area harvest rates on natural fish, consistent with recovery
        • Manage all fisheries not to exceed recovery exploitation rate for natural fish
      • Hatchery Management
        • Modify hatchery program to support conservation
      • Escapement management
        • Utilize mainstem weir to manage escapement composition
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 36.
    • 2011 Action Plan – transition from colonization to local adaptation
      • Agree on actions for hatchery, harvest, habitat, and weir operations
    Nisqually Fall Chinook Stock Management Plan
  • 37.
    • This represents a commitment to:
      • Integration of Hs
      • Local adaptation
      • Contribution to the ESU
      • Transparency of decision making
      • Innovative approach to adaptive management
