Questions/Comments:

Where will the FY 99 work be conducted? In the Pend Oreille watershed?

This work is a small piece of many other ongoing projects including the Joint Stock Assessment (9700400, 9095, and 9156)

Where in region are they planning to survey?

This is another genetics study with $5,000 in lab costs. This seems low. The proponent will do it.

Does this meet the screening requirements? It addresses a general measure of program (watershed projects).

Didn't we fund this last month for FY 98? Yes.

Is Dr. Trotter integrated with WDFW basin work? WDFW has had discussions but have not started work yet.

How will this work benefit fish in long run? By documenting fish presence/absence.

Screening Criteria: Yes

Technical Criteria: Yes

Programmatic Criteria: Yes

General Comment: Projects 9033, 9095, and 9156 appear to overlap and need better coordination.

Comment:

This proposal addresses trout populations in the Wind, Big White Salmon, Little White Salmon, and Klickitat subbasins. It is well written and is for much needed basic distributional work. Electrofishing could be risky with at-risk stocks, and fly-fishing catch-and-release mortality can be high; thus, alternative passive survey procedures such as snorkeling should be considered. The DNA analysis to identify hybridization looks good. It is a big drawback that the proposal describes little attempt at collaboration with others, yet coordination, especially with 9405400, is needed.
