The Grande Ronde Basin Supplementation program has been in operation since 1995. The goal is to prevent the extinction and enhance natural production of spring Chinook salmon in the Grande Ronde Basin (Basin) and increase the probability of survival for the remaining native populations. The program uses locally-adapted broodstock, to help maintain the genetic attributes and life-history characteristics of the naturally-spawning spring Chinook salmon populations in the Basin.
A preliminary environmental assessment (EA) and errata sheet served as the final EA, and a Finding of No Significant Impact was issued on April 10, 1998. Nine supplement analyses to the environmental assessment have been issued on the project. In addition, beginning in 2007 the project is also programmatically covered under the Fish and Wildlife Implementation Plan Regionwide Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision on the FY 2007-2009 Fish and Wildlife Project Implementation, and subsequently the Supplement Analysis (SA) on the 2009 Fish and Wildlife Program DOE/EIS-0312/SA-03.
