Kelt Reconditioning: A Research Project to Enhance Iteroparity in Columbia Basin Steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) – 2002 Annual Report

Abstract

To test kelt steelhead reconditioning as a potential recovery tool, we captured wild emigrating steelhead kelts from the Yakima River and evaluated reconditioning (short and long-term) success and diet formulations at Prosser Hatchery on the Yakima River. In total, 899 kelts were collected for reconditioning at Prosser Hatchery. Captive specimens Captured kelts were separated into two experimental groups: short-term and long-term reconditioning.
