Evaluate existing fish & wildlife law enforcement efforts on the Duck Valley Indian Reservation (DVIR).
1. b. Develop a plan for maximizing the effectiveness of the Shoshone-Paiute Tribes’ natural resource protection.
2. Objective 2. Test a “tribal ranger” concept for conducting biological monitoring -- creel surveys of reservoir and stream fisheries. a. Hire and direct a fisheries technician to conduct creel surveys of streams and reservoirs on the DVIR in conjunction with existing game wardens.
2. b. Summarize creel survey data in terms of estimated statistical indices (e.g., fish measurements and catch/effort) and evaluate the effectiveness of the tribal ranger concept.

Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

The Duck Valley Indian Reservation (DVIR) has valuable natural resources including native redband trout, rainbow trout purchased for fisheries, migratory waterfowl, rare raptors, and big game. The purpose of this project is to review existing fish & wildlife law enforcement efforts on the DVIR and to develop a plan for maximizing the effectiveness of the Shoshone Paiute Tribes’ natural resource protection. The project will also test a “tribal ranger” concept conducting the creel surveys of reservoir and stream fisheries on the DVIR utilizing fisheries technicians in conjunction with existing game wardens. The long-term goal is the development of a conservation law enforcement program that is fully integrated with the fish, wildlife and habitat management goals and objectives – and will insure that future investments restoration are not neutralized by illegal take or habitat degradation. The integrated conservation law enforcement plan would address:(1) Enforcement of regulations for reservoir and stream fisheries; (2) collecting creel survey data on reservoir and stream fisheries; (3) protecting the small and ecologically sensitive populations of native endemic trout populations (including ESA listed stocks) from illegal take; (4) habitat protection and enhancement; (5) enforcement of regulations for wildlife hunting and trapping; (6) ways to enhance law enforcement efforts through interagency coordination and securing funding for additional wardens; and, (7) collecting data to monitor the effectiveness of law enforcement efforts. The review of enforcement work would include evaluation of equipment, personnel, command structure, enforcement operations, and biological support.
