Section 7. Abstract


The Resident Fish Stock Status Above Chief Joseph and Grand Coulee Dams project (NWPPC program measure 10.8B.26) is designed and guided jointly by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), Kalispel Natural Resource Department (KNRD), Spokane Tribe of Indians (STI), and Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation (CCT). The project emphasis is coordinating efforts in collecting and assessing blocked area fisheries information. Implementation of the project will take place in phases. The initial project planning and organization phase was completed in 1997. This phase defined project direction and identified critical components needed for project success. Phase one (1998) will begin implementing critical components identified in 1997. Critical components include; centrally located office space, central computer system/ database, formalized coordination group, input existing fisheries information, and coordinated data collection methodology. The planning phase of the project also identified compiling fisheries information on the Spokane River and assessing migratory salmonids in Box Canyon Reservoir as immediate research needs to be implemented in 1998. Phase two (1999-2001) will develop analysis tools, assess data, fill data gaps, and recommend management efforts. Phase 3 is an ongoing phase beginning in 2002 that will implement management recommendations and monitor and evaluate project recommendations.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

CBFWA: Resident Fish Review Comments Recommendation:
May 13, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Presentation: This project addresses the need for a centralized database and formalizes the coordination between the Spokane Tribe, the Colville Tribe, the Kalispel Tribe and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. The project has several phases: Phase 1 (slated for completion in 1998) will set up central office space, acquire central computers, establish links to satellite offices and Streamnet, coordinate data collection system, and formalize the coordination between the co managers. Phase 2 (1999 - 2001) will develop analysis tools, input and assess data, identify data gaps, and recommend management efforts for the blocked area. StreamNet will link templates and data for spatial representation. Phase 3 will begin in 2002 and will implement, monitor and evaluate recommendations.


Why doesn't the proposal include resumes? Answer: Some people are not hired yet. The Kalispel Tribe position is that the personnel we hire fall under the guidance of the Tribe.

Is this a data management project? Answer: Not entirely. When the data gaps have been identified, the project will move to implementation. The data will be displayed spatially.

How will data compiled by this project modify management actions in the Pend Oreille system? Answer: The management agencies will use this information. It will also be available to the FERC re-licensing proceedings. The Forest Service has land in this area that the other management entities do not have access to. This project brings information together for all of the co-managers to share. FERC license holders are contributing to the project.

What would happen if the BPA funding ran out? Will the database be maintained? Answer: Maintaining the database can be done by the Kalispel Tribe. The tribe has a strong commitment to do this. Funding for implementing the management recommendations would have to be addressed at that point.

Screening Criteria: Yes

Technical Criteria: Yes. Data management tasks not aligned with objectives in FY 2000 and beyond.

Programmatic Criteria: Yes

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Inadequate proposal, adequate purpose
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
It is a good idea to conduct a resident fish stock status project, but this proposal does not ensure that the project will be well implemented. The proposal lacks both methodological detail and a clear conceptual framework. The objectives are not consistent. BPA should examine the budget.
