Other Budget Explanation

Schedule Constraints: The only constrains that may cause schedule changes or delays would be the inclement weather that often occurs in the Duck Valley area. The other problem would be collection of fish and transport to laboratory in a timely manner.

Section 7. Abstract


In accordance with the NWPPC measures the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes wish to initiate a genetic inventory of the native fish in the waters on the Reservation. According to work done off the Reservation (BLM), there are genetically pure strains of redband trout in the Owyhee River downstream of the Reservation. Since the Council has called for a complete stock identification of the fish in the Columbia Basin and our Tribes would like to intiate this work as soon as possible. This work will benefit the Tribes and in helping us know where these pure strains of fish are and then how to protect and enhance their habitat. This project will assist our staff in identifying and quantifying the various stocks of fish and their locations. The estimated time for completion of all streams on the Reservation is five years. The expected outcome of this project is to determine the populations and species of trout in the river and streams of the Reservation as well as to increase the natural reproduction of resident trout. It is the Tribes eventual goal to have a suitable habitat for anadromous fish to once again return to the Owyhee River basin. This project will work with the Tribes Habitat Enhancement project to help protect the areas known to have genetically pure strains of fish. Also, new areas will be evaluated for protection and enhancement as the project continues.
