Comment:

Presentation: The Spokane Tribal hatchery is part of a collaborative effort to restore and enhance Lake Roosevelt. The hatchery arose from a 1987 Council amendment and was built in 1991 by BPA. Grand Coulee Dam completely blocked anadromous fish passage and caused an 80% loss of habitat suitable for salmonids. A feasibility report concluded that fish populations in Lake Roosevelt were not large enough to sustain anything other than a seasonal fishery and recommended large- scale hatcheries to supply rainbow trout and kokanee to the lake and tributaries. The hatchery production goals (13.5 million kokanee fry and 500,000 rainbow trout) were developed before the hatchery was on line and were based on assumptions that weren't accurate. The lake has warmer water and a lower volume than originally planned. The hatchery oversight team has lowered the 1999 production goals to 500,000 kokanee yearlings (255,000 of which go to Sherman Creek), 960,000 kokanee fingerlings, and 530,000 rainbow trout. Production is now double what it was designed for. There is some cost sharing involved with trapping in the tributaries.

Questions/Answers:

Are the fish transferred to the net pens? Answer: The kokanee produced here go to an existing net pen program which we are using to indicate the success with kokanee. We had a surplus of kokanee and decided to rear them in net pens. These fish do not go into the kokanee net pen project 9094.

Explain the $83,000 in utility costs? Answer: We put in a new well and run two 50 hp pumps.

Comment: There are three facilities putting fish in Lake Roosevelt. It seems like a lot of fish. Answer: We coordinate activities.

Are you going to blacktop roads? Answer: This year the road will be improved.

What is the output into Lake Roosevelt? Answer: The hatchery is monitored and evaluated by the Lake Roosevelt Monitoring Program (9404300).

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

Comment:

The ISRP had many unanswered questions about work described in this proposal. The project type "supplementation" is listed in the table but not explained. "Supplementation" does not correspond to the way Sherman Creek Hatchery fish will be used (project 9104700). The genetic and ecological effects of hatchery fish on wild fish or other organisms are an important scientific concern, but are not adequately considered in the proposal. Monitoring and evaluation are left to another proposed project, which potentially compromises the effectiveness of monitoring and evaluation and makes scientific evaluation of the proposal difficult.
