Comment:

Presentation: This project started out as a supplemental budget to support the monitoring and evaluation activities associated with the white sturgeon aquaculture (8806400) and the Kootenai River Fisheries investigations (8806500). This project could be withdrawn and the funds could be added to those two projects. The KTOI has already included $50,000 in project 8806400. The remaining $50,000 should be added to IDFG's 8806500.

Questions/Answers: The money that the RFM allocated to the new field station last year was to be deducted from the FY 99 budget. Was it? Answer: It didn't work out that way.

How much money is really needed for sturgeon? Answer: The KTOI worked on this last year and will provide updated numbers.

The FY 99 funding level will be zero because $50,000 from this project was already included in project 8806400 and the remaining $50,000 has been added to project 8806500.

Comment:

If this work is needed it should be part of other proposals and justified as such. This proposal is for FTE support and cannot be judged technically. The extra funds were not justified in the proposal.
