FISHERIES RESEARCH BIOLOGIST

Department:  Fish & Wildlife
Closes:  07/25/2014

SALARY: $19.90-$23.98 (G12-13/S1-4) DOE

GENERAL STATEMENT

All the natural populations of salmon and steelhead originating from the Snake River basin are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. Beginning in the late nineteenth century, salmon and steelhead (Oncorhynchus spp.) returns began to decline due to numerous anthropogenic causes (e.g., commercial fishing, habitat degradation, hydropower development). As a result, the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes (SBT) Fish and Wildlife Department (Department) developed the Supplementation, Monitoring & Evaluation Program (SMEP) to increase abundance of salmon and steelhead populations in the Salmon River basin using artificial propagation to meet Tribal conservation and harvest objectives.

The biologist selected to fill this position will work for the SMEP, which currently includes five on-going artificial propagation programs: 1) Panther Creek Chinook Salmon Project; 2) Steelhead Streamside Incubation Project; 3) Yankee Fork Chinook Salmon Project; 4) Yankee Fork Steelhead Project; and 5) Chinook Salmon Egg Incubation Project. All of these projects occur in the Salmon River basin which is located in central-Idaho. The SMEP is responsible for collecting spring/summer Chinook salmon for broodstock to fill Crystal Springs Fish Hatchery as well as steelhead to fill Magic Valley Fish Hatchery.

The SMEP is responsible for monitoring, researching, and evaluating (MR&E) the Tribal artificial propagation projects following the MR&E (Plan). The MR&E Plan provides guidance as to how artificial propagation will be assessed so that operations can be adaptively managed to optimize hatchery and natural production, minimize ecological impacts, and sustain harvest. Implementation of the MR&E Plan will be a major facet of this position along with the usual tasks of trapping adults and collecting broodstock for the respective hatcheries. The SMEP will develop annual broodstock collection objectives for Crystal Springs FH as well as determine appropriate release size and timing of juveniles. MR&E will provide the necessary information to adaptively manage Crystal Springs FH.

The SMEP has been underway for a number of years through funding from a variety of sources, most recently the Lower Snake River Compensation Plan and Bonneville Power Administration (BPA). This position will facilitate full participation in operations and maintenance and monitoring and evaluation in all artificial programs, through funding provided by the BPA.

The Fisheries Research Biologist will be stationed at the Department headquarters in Fort Hall, Idaho and will be required to stay at satellite facilities located in central-Idaho for extended periods of time to conduct artificial propagation and MR&E.
