Comment:

This proposal is for management and research to enhance sockeye salmon populations in Redfish Lake. The focus on whole lake limnology is a strength. The key management technique being tested is whole-lake fertilization. Fertilization is potentially damaging and the proposal does not sufficiently describe the technical justification for using this method. The proposal does note the success of Canadian fertilization programs and a suggestive short-term result was obtained in Redfish Lake. However, the proposal does not demonstrate that fertilization is necessary, likely to be effective, or safe to use in their situation. In particular, potential effects to the lake’s food web, and how they can be monitored and evaluated, are not addressed. The experimental design, which compares lakes with both salmon and fertilization to one lake with neither, is flawed by confounding and lack of replication or control.
