DESCRIPTION
This assessment will provide information to increase the understanding of the distribution, timing, origin, health, and habitat utilization of juvenile salmonids in the West Puget Sound nearshore habitats. This information is essential to prioritization of protection and restoration of healthy habitat conditions along Kitsap shorelines and complements the East Kitsap Nearshore Assessment soon to be completed by Kitsap County. The Suquamish Tribe will coordinate with several partners including WDFW, the City of Bainbridge Island, NOAA Fisheries, USGS, Port Gamble S'Klallam, SeaGrant, West Sound Watersheds Council, several non-profits and educational institutions and numerous trained volunteers to monitor the relative abundance and timing of all species and large invertibrates collected in selected sites along East Kitsap County. The primary focus will be on salmonids and forage fish. Salmon will be identified, measured, and checked for the presence/absence of coded wire tags, adipose fin clips, and other potential marks. Coded wire tagged fish will be sampled to determine origin (watershed or hatchery) and release date. Chinook and coho salmon are weighed and measured to determine "condition factor" a proxy to estimate interaction. DNA will be collected from chum salmon to identify potential Hood Canal summer chum utilization of northeastern Kitsap County. This project will have an important public education component and will be coordinated with past, present, and future Puget Sound nearshore monitoring initiatives.
