5 Elwha Dam 1913 (RM 4.9) Lower Elwha Middle Elwha Upper Elwha Glines Canyon Dam (RM 13.4) Headwaters From Brenkmanet al NW Sci 82:91-106

6 The Elwha River Ecosystem and Fisheries Restoration Act (1992) mandates restoration of the Elwha ecosystem Decision made to remove the two Elwha dams Dam removal began in 2011 Largest dam removal project in the US to date Reconnection to upstream habitat for 8 anadromous salmonid species Estimated 18.6 million m 3 of sediment will be released downstream Restoration plan for native fish species Natural recolonization for bull trout

7 Bull trout found in four distinct areas within the Elwha River (headwaters, upper, middle, lower) Primarily adfluvial fish present Suspected anadromous fish observed below Elwha Dam Do Elwha River bull trout still migrate to marine environment? Are bull trout in the different sections of the Elwha River genetically distinct? Photo Credits: Sam Brenkman

8 RPM 2.a. Determine the origin of bull trout utilizing the lower Elwha River through a genetic analysis (microsatellite DNA) of these fish, e.g. from the tribal test fishery, tribal hatchery, and state rearing channel. RPM 2.b. Determine by genetic analysis if bull trout from the Lower Elwha River are distinct from the Upper Elwha River or Lower Dungeness River/Gray Wolf subpopulations. RPM 2.c. Determine the genetic signature of the Lower Dungeness River/Gray Wolf River subpopulation.

9 Determine the level of genetic variation among Olympic Peninsula bull trout populations Are bull trout in the Elwha and Dungeness Rivers genetically distinct? Determine the origin of bull trout collected in the lower Elwha and Dungeness rivers Determine the level of genetic variation among bull trout separated by the Elwha River dams

10 Adult and juvenile bull trout collected from 6 Olympic Peninsula tributaries Hoh, SF Hoh, Kalaloch, Elwha, Dungeness, NF Skokomish Elwha and NF Skokomish fish collected above dams All individuals genotyped at 16 microsatellite loci Individuals grouped according to tributary of origin for statistical analysis

11 Adult and sub-adult bull trout collected from the 4 sections of the Elwha River Genetic assignment tests for fish collected in the lower Elwha and Dungeness Rivers Fish grouped according to sampling location for statistical analysis (headwaters, upper, middle, lower) Analysis of population structure Preliminary analysis with FCA and STRUCTURE Estimates of F ST among sampling locations Contingency tests of allele frequency heterogeneity

12 Elwha NF Skokomish Hoh, SF Hoh, Kalaloch Dungeness Overall F ST was ( % C.I. )

13 NPS n= 21 n= 18 All lower Elwha fish assigned to Elwha with probability of 1.0 All lower Dungeness fish assigned to Dungeness with probability of 1.0 Downstream migration still occurs in Elwha Possibility for anadromy exists
