Reasonable and Prudent Alternatives (RPAs)

Sponsor-Reported Relevant RPAs

Sponsor listed no RPAs for this project proposal

Relevant RPAs based upon NMFS & BPA Review

NMFS and BPA did not associate any reasonable and prudent alternatives with this project proposal

NPPC Program Measure Number(s) which this project addresses: 10.3C.4; 10.3C.5; 10.3C.7 -- The measure numbers only authorize the evaluation of the genetic status of westslope; they do not authorize any monitoring activities. Therefore, monitoring is not included within this proposal.
FWS/NMFS Biological Opinion Number(s) which this project addresses:
Other Planning Document References Two documents evaluating the resident fish mitigation program in Dworshak Reservoir have identified the need for resident fish mitigation that does not interfere with native westslope cutthroat trout in the NF Clearwater basin (Bennett 1997; Fickeisen and Geist 1993). Fickeisen and Geist (1993) identify the need for a genetic inventory, life history, and habitat use of westslope cutthroat trout in Dworshak Reservoir and its tributaries. Bennett (1997) identifies the need for developing a westslope cutthroat trout broodstock as resident fish mitigation for Dworshak Reservoir to preserve the native cutthroat trout in the basin.
