Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: (1) The percent cost per objective is based upon current cooperation with other BPA funded projects implemented by the Tribe, Project personnel from BIA and Tribal funded Programs, if cooperation ceases to occur many of the objectives will not be met. (2) Increased process in the Power Council?s Program will decrease time spent implementing the project.

Comment:

Presentation: This project provides resident fish substitution for anadromous fish losses caused by Chief Joseph and Grand Coulee dams. The objective of the hatchery is to produce rainbow trout (4 stocks), brook trout, and Lahontan trout to sustain a tribal subsistence and recreational fishery. BPA has a 25-year obligation to fund 100% of the hatchery operation and maintenance. Livestock, timber and power production depleted the native species and had a dramatic impact on the tribes. The reservation now has 2 native stocks remaining; 1) an adfluvial rainbow trout stock in the San Poil River; and 2) a kokanee stock that is a derivative of sockeye. The hatchery doesn't stock hatchery fish on top of native fish.

Questions/Answers: Do brook trout get into Lake Roosevelt? Answer: Brook trout are not native to the area and have been on the reservation since 1913. They could get into Lake Roosevelt but the habitat isn't suitable and there are no known bull trout in the reservoir.

Are westslope cutthroat trout native? Answer: Yes. We are stocking Lahotan cutthroat trout in one highly alkaline lake.

The catch-per-unit-effort goals seem high. Are you achieving them? Answer: No – except for a few months. They may need to be re-evaluated.

Screening Criteria: Yes

Technical Criteria: Yes

Programmatic Criteria: Yes

Recommendation:
Lake Roosevelt Hatchery Proposals - Inadequate as a set
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

This is a well-written and clearly argued proposal, but the ISRP found the proposal not to be biologically supportable. The proposed use of non-native fish stocks is not biologically justified and is in conflict with restoration and maintenance of Pacific Northwest ecosystems. Although the proposal states the reasons that non-native stocks have been chosen for use in establishing naturally-producing populations, some of these proposed stocks have been shown to be harmful to bull trout and other native species. The Council’s FWP prioritizes the use and protection of native stocks. Even the "native" stocks listed in the proposal are "naturalized" non-native species. The proposal provides a good context of why a hatchery is beneficial to recovery efforts, but it does not adequately address ecosystem interactions.
