Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 147 / Thursday, July 30, 2020 / Notices in section 9 of the ESA for programs that are approved by NMFS under the 4(d) Rule (50 CFR 223.203(b)(6)). ODFW has submitted an HGMP for the Clackamas Hatchery Spring Chinook Salmon program in the Clackamas River basin under Limit 5 of the 4(d) Rule. This program is primarily funded by the National Marine Fishery Service through the Mitchell Act, and partially funded by the City of Portland and Portland General Electric. Prior to making a final determination on the submitted HGMP, NMFS must make it available for the public to have the opportunity comment on how the HGMP addresses the criteria in Limit 5 of the 4(d) Rule. The submitted HGMP describes the hatchery program along with the associated monitoring and evaluation activities. The program will begin to integrate natural-origin returning adults into the hatchery broodstock in order to promote an increase in genetic fitness and survivability. Through the use of a conservative sliding scale approach, the ODFW will incorporate a small percentage of natural-origin returning adults. This integrated program will provide a much needed increase in genetic fitness to a highly domesticated hatchery stock that has struggled with precipitous declining returns for the last decade. ODFW hopes that this new management approach will supplement the much desired mark-selective Clackamas River spring Chinook salmon fishery. The program is intended to mitigate for fish losses caused by the construction and operation of the mainstem Columbia River and the Clackamas River dams by providing fishing opportunities for tribes and states, and to contribute to the survival and recovery of ESA-listed Lower Columbia River Chinook salmon.
