Idaho Fish and Game (IDFG) submits data to FINS from hatcheries that support LSRCP and Idaho Power mitigation. IDFG also submits data from some of their other hatchery and research programs to FINS and these are described below.
The following are IDFG hatchery programs that also submit data to FINS.
With your mouse you can click and move the map, zoom in/out, and click on the icons to view the full name of the hatchery and satellite facility.
The IDFG steelhead research weirs are operated to monitor the status of local populations of wild steelhead. Trapping data from the research weirs are entered in the FINS database.
Individual weir locations are not shown on the map.
The Snake River Sockeye Artificial Program began in May 1991, before the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) listed Snake River sockeye as endangered. The program focuses on increasing populations while conserving genetic diversity by relying on captive broodstock, production supplementation, habitat evaluations, genetic monitoring, and monitoring and evaluation. Cooperators include Idaho Department of Fish and Game, NOAA, Shoshone-Bannock Tribes, and the Bonneville Power Administration.
Shown on the map are the two Sockeye rearing facilities Eagle Fish Hatchery and Springfield Fish Hatchery.
Also shown on the map is the Sockeye release location and adult trap named Redfish Lake Creek Trap.
