Need Regional PIT Plan Powered By Docstoc
					 BiOP RPA 52.6
 ISAB recommends a regional
  tagging & marking plan



                           BioAnalysts, Inc.
 Develop a PIT tagging plan, as an element of a
   more comprehensive regional tagging& marking
   plan for RME
      Ensure adequate estimates or indices are being
       obtained.
      Improve efficiency by coordinating tagging among
       user groups or H-categories.




                                             BioAnalysts, Inc.
 Mainstem/Hydro:
      Clarify Management Needs for mainstem/hydro
       RME, which require PIT tag based data.
     Specify required estimates and quantitative
      characteristics thereof, e.g. precision.
   Assess Population Coverage.
 Integrate with other H’s PIT tagging needs and
  effort.


                                           BioAnalysts, Inc.
1.       Work through the Mainstem/Hydro Steps and
         record decisions.
     •      Inventory planned PIT tag effort for 2010+
     •      Align the effort with management needs.
     •      Identify gaps
2.       Discuss components and structure of a regional
         PIT tag plan.
3.       Discuss who, how and when the plan will be
         produced (Multi-H effort).

                                                     BioAnalysts, Inc.
1.   RME Workgroups formed (H-specific)
2.   Assessed BiOp coverage for RME
     activities.
3.   Catalog projects that currently use
     PIT, or plan to in the near term

      FWP

   Hydro –
        Monitor survival both Juvenile and Adults (BiOp)
        SMP monitoring (FWP)
        Action effectiveness/ Life history research studies.
   Estuary RME
   Population – VSP
     - Status and Trends
   Hatchery evaluations
   Habitat action evaluations
   Harvest impacts

                                                         BioAnalysts, Inc.
   Hatchery and habitat projects release tagged lots from
    specific populations to evaluate actions.
   Hydro survival monitoring uses those tagged fish from
    tribs. and hatcheries.
   SMP monitoring also uses those tags.
   Population status and trend monitoring relies on those
    tags as well.
   Hydro and estuary research projects use additional tags,
    some of which can augment hydro performance
    standard monitoring.

                                                BioAnalysts, Inc.
 Does the AMIP alter Hydro RME needs or
  shift emphasis relative to tagging needs?
 In the future, what populations should
  tagged, and in what numbers?
 How can we efficiently coordinate and
  integrate tagging efforts among Hatchery
  Habitat and hydro studies?
