Reviews and recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

Recommendation:
Fundable
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Presentation: This project is truly a grassroots volunteer effort that has grown in size. We have 51 volunteers (average age 70) who work with CCT, ST and WDFW. The volunteers build and maintain 43 rainbow trout net pens spread over a 96-mile area. We also have 6 kokanee net pens at Kettle Falls. BPA provides funding for coordination. The goal is to produce 500,000 rainbow trout in pens to increase the target harvest to 190,000 fish. Last year's 82 foot drawdown caused a problem for the fish: we were constantly moving and re-anchoring

Questions/Answers:

What is the catch rate? Answer: In 1997 it was 100,000 –200,000 out of a 500,000 release. We met the objective of 180,000 fish harvested.

Can net pen rainbows be increasing fishing pressure on wild (San Poil) stocks by drawing fishermen to lake? Answer: The native population is limited to the San Poil River and is protected by fishing regulations. The net pen trout do not go up the San Poil River.

Can you mobilize the volunteers to build net pens for kokanee? Answer: We could use the volunteers if the kokanee were localized in larger pens. But there are regulations about how many fish the pens can hold. The 9 existing net pens are very spread out now. The nutrients from the net pens would add to system.

Screening Criteria: Yes

Technical Criteria: Yes

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

Comment:

This proposal is for work that is not well linked to the other mitigation programs. The assumption that a harvest of 180,000 can be produced from 500,000 fish is not technically justified in the proposal, and plans to assess and avoid ecosystem-level effects of net pens are not given. BPA should look at the budget.
