Abstract: This project will provide pink salmon for subsistence use in the Port Graham area while maintaining the Port Graham hatchery's broodstock development schedule. Because local runs of coho and sockeye salmon, the more traditional salmon subsistence resource, are at low levels, pink salmon are being heavily relied on for subsistence. This project will help ensure that pink salmon remain available for subsistence use until the more traditional species are rejuvenated. Prior to FY 98, two strategies were employed: increasing fisheries management surveillance to maximize use of the adult pink salmon return and increasing marine survival of hatchery produced pink salmon. However, on January 13, 1998 the Port Graham hatchery burned, destroying all the pink salmon eggs under incubation. Because of this, the methods in the FY 98 DPD have been revised to include helping set up a temporary facility to incubate eggs from the 1998 return. This revision will allow the project to continue as originally planned in FY 99.
