Comment:

Presentation: The Methow Biodiversity Project is a private organization that is interested in biological issues.

We have conducted a 3-year amphibian study and we know what we have. The objective of this study is to conduct an inventory and determine the relative abundance of resident fish and macroinvertebrates in the area. We don't really know what species are here because no one has ever done a study of non-game species. We think that 11 of a possible 18 species exist in the area. As land development increases, so does the use of water resources. We have no baseline data and we have no way to assess the impacts. There are two hatcheries which release coho fry.

Questions/Answers:

Haven't there been 20 years of spawning ground surveys for anadromous fish? Answer: The Fish and Wildlife Service collected a lot of data on abundance but non-game resident species haven't received management attention.

Which Council Program measure is applicable? Answer: We didn't have access to the Program and were told that the correct measure would be filled in.

Screening Criteria: No. Proposal doesn't address a specific Council Measure dealing with resident fish.

Technical Criteria: No. What are target species? Does not meet criteria 6 and 7. Proposal lacks use of historical data and summary of past information.

Programmatic Criteria: No. Proposal doesn't meet criterion 12.

General Comment: This project more appropriately addresses anadromous fish and could be part of a watershed project.

Comment:

The purpose of the project is to describe the baseline on macroinvertebrates, but two years may not be enough time considering the difficulty of studying macroinvertebrates. The proposal listed nine objectives but only described the methods for two of the objectives. Overall, the project seems worthwhile.
