9506300 Yakima/klickitat M&E Program Covers all essential M&E needs for species targeted by the YKFP.
8811500 Fisheries Technician Field Activities Provides essential technical support to fulfill diverse needs of the YKFP (e.g., M&E support, spawner surveys, juvenile facility operations, marking, etc.)
8812005 Fish Passage Video Monitoring Monitors, at Prosser and Roza Dams, the number of adult salmonids returning to the Yakima Subbasin. A key element of YFP M&E.
9603301 Yakima River Fall Chinook Suppl -- O&M Essential for YKFP's all-stock initiative: experimentation needed for design of future fall chinook supplementation program.
9603302 Yakima River Coho Restoration -- O&M Essential for YKFP's all-stock initiative: experimentation needed to test feasibility of coho restoration in the Yakima.
9506404 Policy/Technical Involvement/Planning -- YKFP Supports the required co-manager process for the YKFP.
9506406 Monitoring of Supplementation Response Variables for the YKFP Essential for adequate M&E planning and technical participation as co-manager of the YKFP.
9506402 Upper Yakima Species Interaction Studies Vital M&E function relative to impacts of YKFP on existing fish community in Yakima Subbasin, and relative to impacts of existing fish community on YKFP.
9105700 Yakima Phase 2 Screen Fabrication Essential for preventing entrainment of adult and juvenile salmonids in irrigation diversions.
9200900 Yakima Phase 2 Screen O&M Essential for maintaining effectiveness of screens that prevent entrainment and loss of adult and juvenile salmonids in irrigation diversions.
9107500 Yakima Phase 2 Screen Construction Essential for preventing entrainment of adult and juvenile salmonids in irrigation diversions.
9503300 O&M of Yakima Fish Protection, Mitigation and Enhancement Facilities Essential for maintaining effectiveness of Yakima Subbasin fish protection structures.
9704900 Teanaway Instream Flow Restoration Tributary enhancement critical to success of YKFP.
9603501 Satus Watershed Restoration Habitat enhancement project for critical tributary of Yakima River; a prerequisite for effective supplementation.
9506800 Klickitat Habitat Preliminary Design Project YIN Provides habitat/utilization data critical to the design of a future Klickitat supplementation project.
5512600 Upper Klickitat Meadows Riparian Restoration YIN Contributes to the improvement of prime habitat vital to the success of a future Klickitat supplementation project.
5512700 Klickitat Basin Culvert Rehabilitation YIN Provides for passage within tributaries; essential to the success of a future Klickitat supplementation project.
5512800 Lower Klickitat Habitat Enhancement Project YIN Improves reproductive success of lower Klickitat species; essential to the success of a future Klickitat supplementation project.
0 Yakima River Basin Water Enhancement Project (YRBWEP): Congressional Act. Irrigation water conserved by YRBWEP may be allocated in part to benefit fish stocks analyzed by this planning/modeling project.

Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: It will basically take one man-year per species to complete the modeling. Because the plan is to devote two biologists on a half-time basis to do this task, a policy-level decision to model more thanone species at a time would delay completion a year.

Comment:

This is a good idea, but the implementation does not appear to be well thought out. As a stand-alone modeling effort, there is really no way to validate it; however, if it were integrated with the design of the overall supplementation experiment and monitoring effort being implemented in the Yakima Basin it would be very valuable.
