FY 2003 Request for Studies Review Cycle

On March 14, 2003, Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) solicited for proposals which would fill research gaps needed for the successful implementation of the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) 2000 FCRPS Biological Opinion. More research needed to be performed for two reasonable and prudent alternatives (RPAs):

  1. RPA Action 182: the need to determine the relative reproductive success of hatchery-origin and natural origin anadromous salmonids in the Columbia Basin, and

  2. RPA Action 184: 1) synthesize an analytical approach to determine the effects of hatchery reforms on extinction risk and recovery of threatened and endangered salmon and steelhead populations in the Columbia River Basin; and 2) determine the reproductive success of natural-origin, hatchery-origin, and reconditioned kelt steelhead.

Through this programmatic solicitation, BPA intends to implement several projects to fulfill these RPA requirements related to RME that are not actively being addressed through the Bonneville Power Administration’s current implementation program.
