Project Name:
Hanford Reach Salmon and Steelhead Monitoring and Evaluation
The monitoring and evaluation objectives mandated by the Hatchery Genetic Management Plans for both fall Chinook salmon and steelhead released from Ringold Springs Hatchery requires the collection of data describing the movement and survival of both juveniles and adults during migrations associated with their life histories. PIT tagging at Ringold Springs Hatchery has not occurred since the small scale projects occurring in the 1990's. We anticipate the release of approximately 7,000 PIT tagged fish associated annual releases of fall Chinook salmon and steelhead originating from Ringold Springs Hatchery.
