Abstract


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:
Fund
Date:
Jun 15, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Recommendation: Fund for one year on the quality of the proposal. Subsequent funding contingent on inclusion of more emphasis on native biota. The proposal would be more attractive for multi-year review cycle if propagation and stocking were consistent with regional goals by shifting to native species such as local stocks of kokanee, redband, or cutthroat. This and other Roosevelt Lake hatchery proposals need to address and monitor potential impacts on existing native biota.

Comments: The proposal is for a fish gamete collection and initial fish production project for releasing kokanee salmon and rainbow trout into Lake Roosevelt, with an established monitoring program. The objective is to maintain a viable fishery in the lake as mitigation for blockage of anadromous salmon runs by Grand Coulee Dam and continued loss of fish from the reservoir through entrainment in turbine intakes.

The proposal was well written and thorough (much improved from last year). Releasing kokanee salmon and rainbow trout into Lake Roosevelt seems to have been accepted regionally as a viable mitigation tool. Furthermore, in terms of providing a viable fishery in Lake Roosevelt, monitoring suggests the project has been and probably will continue to be successful.

The project is well integrated into the regional scheme and warrants continued funding as part of that scheme (the regional approach could use an umbrella proposal). The proposal lists several FWP measures for which it is relevant, plus the Blocked Area Management Plan. The work is related to 6 existing projects and 3 new proposals. There is a good history of project operation and fish production. This hatchery is integrated with the Sherman Creek Hatchery and net pens to allow a sequenced production of fish for the Lake Roosevelt area. The proposal has good, straightforward objectives and tasks. There is an especially good background section, which would have been good as an overall Lake Roosevelt area umbrella statement. The rationale is good. There is an excellent summary of collaboration and related projects (as noted above), project history, and methods description. The project would be a good candidate for multi-year funding, pending overall regional review of hatcheries as mitigation.

The group questioned, as in the ISRP's FY99 comments, why the objective of this work was not to restore natural, native, resident species for the fishery. Also, the proposal doesn't address the ecosystem interactions (and interactions with existing, native species and stocks) implicit in stocking non-native species or stocks. Because M&E is done under another project, there may not be sufficient coordination.
