This report and its associated appendices analyze the sensitivity, exposure, impact, adaptive capacity, and vulnerability of Entiat National Fish Hatchery and its summer Chinookprogram to the long-term trends in climate and increased likelihood of extreme weather events that could significantly affect USFWS programs and hatcheries in the Columbia-Pacific Northwest Region.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is assessing the vulnerability of its National Fish Hatcheries (NFHs) in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho in response to projected future climates. The Assessment Team has completedvulnerability assessments (CCVAs) for Winthrop NFH (USFWS 2013), Quilcene NFH (USFWS 2016), Makah NFH (USFWS 2019) Warm Springs NFH (2021) and Entiat NFH (2021). These assessments are focused on NFH vulnerabilities at the hatchery and local watershed levels and are motivated by long-term trends in climate and the increased likelihood of extreme weather events that could significantly affect USFWS programs and hatcheries in the Columbia-Pacific Northwest Region. Other agencies are evaluating climate change vulnerabilities of anadromous salmonid fishes in the marine environment and freshwater migration corridors. 2 The report presented here represents the USFWS’s CCVA for Warm Springs NFH in central Oregon.
