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: The Tribe is currently using state-approved protocols and methods (FLIR Flights, water temperature monitoring, snorkeling, etc.) to conduct habitat and presence/absence surveys on the Middle Fork of the Malheur River. The goal is to identify the overall habitat conditions and quantify the population structure of bull trout and redband trout. In addition to the habitat work, the Tribe will do some genetic analysis of redband trout (for which there are no current genetics analyses). Cost-sharing comes from the USFS ($32,000/year), BOR ($47,000/year), BLM, and others. The funding is tight so it is important to have both projects (9701900 and 9107). In order to develop management strategies , it is important that both projects - the North Fork bull trout study (9701) and the Stinkingwater - be implemented at the same time.

Questions/Answers:

Are the bull trout in the North Fork migratory? Answer: We don't know. This is what we want to find out. We have no information.

Screening Criteria: Yes

Technical Criteria: Yes

Programmatic Criteria: Yes

General Comment: Do you need 3 biologists and 3 technicians for this project?

Recommendation:
Adequate
Date:

Comment:

This proposal is for good baseline assessment work, to provide data for decision-making that will precede further management activities. The goals are protection and enhancement of resident fishes in an area that contains naturalized brook trout from previous stocking. The project history and methods are well written.
