2. c. Maintain adult holding/spawning facilities in good working order
3. Participate in planning and review process for the new Umatilla Hatchery supplement and the NEOH - Walla Walla Hatchery a. Review and comment on engineering designs and follow up with engineers as necessary during planning and construction of incubation and rearing facilities planned at the S. Fk. Walla Walla River site
4. Increase production of Carson Stock CHS for release ino the Umatilla River a. USFWS to provide services needed to mark100,000 CHS from Carson Hatchery
4. b. USFWS toprovide services needed to produce 350,000 from Little White Salmon Hatchery

Reviews and Recommendations

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

ISRP Preliminary Review , ISRP 99-2 Recommendation:
Delay Funding
Date:
Jun 15, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Recommendation: Delay funding until the proposal addresses specific deficiencies noted in the comments. This project should be included in an Independent Programmatic Review of the Umatilla and Walla Walla hatchery programs.

Comments: A number of objectives listed here are also covered in other proposals, which raises the question of whether there is duplication of effort or a lack of coordination. The budget is not satisfactorily justified. The number of full time personnel seems high. No explanation is given for increased out-year costs. In fact, the proposal says it expects costs to reach a maximum of $661,000 in FY 1999, but shows $1,486,000 in FY 2000, increasing to $1,675,000 in FY 2004. It is not clear, given the high rate of straying of returning adults, that the acclimation facilities are accomplishing their presumed objective of encouraging return of adults to upstream areas. Is there any evidence that fish held in acclimation ponds are any more likely to return to the area as adults than fish released directly from the trucks?

[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Fund existing activities. See programmatic recommendation for Umatilla and Walla Walla under project 8903500. Most concerns were addressed in the review response, except the issue of whether or not smolt-to-adult survival has been increased.
