    My project deals with the tagging and tracking of wild kokanee salmon in Lake Roosevelt, the reservoir created by the construction of Grand Coulee Dam. I implanted 25 wild kokanee with Vemco hydroacoustic tags and tracked them for the year of 2010 to see how they behave throughout the year. We are interested in learning more about their seasonal use of the different parts of the reservoir, how warm water affects their daily vertical migrations in the water column, and also to see if we could identify any deep water spawning grounds for this wild population of kokanee.
