CRR Grants for Hatchery-Associated Projects
Funding is available for on-the-ground projects, or activities that lead to on-the-ground projects, aimed at reintroduction and recovery of Endangered Species Act-listed (listed) Cowlitz salmonid populations originating in the upper basin, upstream of Barrier Dam, with a focus on spring Chinook Salmon.
Four examples of types hatchery-associated production projects that can be funded through the CRR Program:
- Remote site incubators
- Distribution of fry or fingerlings
- Smolt acclimation where quality habitat exists but it is underutilized
- Introducing fish into areas where restoration has occurred or fish passage barriers have been addressed
See the Hatchery-Associated Project Guiding Principles (in revision) for criteria for other types of projects, as well as guiding principles on which projects will be evaluated.
