Title: Salmonid Residence, Survival, and Migration in Newly Constructed Habitat Site 
in the Lower Duwamish River 

This project seeks to install and operationalize a passive integrated transponder (PIT) array at the
Duwamish River People’s Park and Shoreline Habitat (DRPP) to monitor juvenile fish use and migration
through the newly restored habitat. There is a large data gap on how out-migrating salmonids are utilizing
recently completed habitat restoration projects within the highly modified estuarine environment of the
lower Duwamish River. Many sampling efforts have tried to address this using beach seining in the
Duwamish. This method only captures fish presence at a single moment in time and does not allow
researchers to determine if restoration projects are indeed providing meaningful long-term rearing habitat.
Based on WRIA 9 funded research done to date, we know that this long-term rearing is key to producing
Chinook outmigrants that will survive to adulthood. The Port of Seattle’s DRPP offers migrating
salmonids off-channel estuarine refugia that hasn’t been available for almost 100 years. Direct sampling
methods (i.e., fyke net) indicate juvenile Chinook salmon are entering the off-channel marsh basin within
the DRPP but little is known about how these fish are using the site (e.g., residence time, repeated entry,
etc.). A PIT array will be installed at the mouth of the DRPP marsh basin. During fyke net deployment,
any salmonids that meet the appropriate tagging criteria will have a PIT tag inserted. The tagged fish will
then be released back into the main channel of the Duwamish River. If a tagged fish enters the marsh
basin, the PIT array will record its data. The Port and King County will then analyze the data to help
determine how the tagged fish are utilizing the DRPP marsh basin, including residence time, multiple reentries
, overall migration patterns, etc. This is a complementary project to King County’s current research
on juvenile salmonid migration in the lower Green River. Several thousand fish will be tagged upstream
as part of that project, and the PIT arrays at DRPP will be able to detect if/how any fish tagged elsewhere
in the watershed (or greater Puget Sound) are utilizing the marsh basin. This will provide invaluable
information on juvenile salmonid migratory patterns in a comprehensive, watershed-scale way. The DRPP
project is one of the largest habitat restoration projects in the Duwamish estuary in a generation. DRPP is
a Tier 1 project identified in WRIA 9’s Salmon Habitat Plan (WRIA 9 2021). It aligns with WRIA 9’s
recovery strategy of protect, restore, and enhance estuarine habitat and with the Duwamish Blueprint
program identified within the Salmon Habitat Plan. Effectiveness monitoring and enhanced fish monitoring
to understand how fish are using the project site is essential to ensure that this project and future estuary
restoration projects in the Duwamish maximize benefits to salmon.
The CONTRACTOR shall report in writing delays, or adverse conditions that will materially affect their
ability to meet project objectives or time schedules. This disclosure shall be accompanied by a statement
of the action taken or proposed and any assistance needed by PSP to resolve the situation.
