Biological Outcomes of this project: This project will focus on protecting sensitive salmonid species and their habitats through the enforcement of existing laws and regulations governing land use activities, water use, and harvest. Officers will work closely with the Natural Resource Staff of the CTUIR and others in becoming intimately familiar with regulations controlling land-use activities, irrigation use, salmonid locations during vulnerable periods (including adult holding sites), harvest goals, daily catch limits, gear requirements, forest practices, mining, etc. This knowledge will provide BPA funded law-enforcement officers with the ability to see an ecosystem as a whole unit, capable of identifying and preventing activities that impact salmonid fish populations. Following is a list of expected biological outcomes resulting from these efforts: 1. Improved survival of incubating eggs and resultant juvenile densities as a result of improved channel diversity, pool habitat, riparian cover, return of invertebrate species, and reduction of sediment input and water temperatures. This will be accomplished through patrol of activities related to land-use and irrigation withdrawal. 2. Improved adult survival and resultant elevations in juvenile production and outmigration by reducing poaching levels within riverine habitat and at adult holding sites. 3. Protection of existing and restored riparian and upland habitat by patrol of land-use activities impacting these areas.
Biological Data: It's understood the biological outcome of these proposed actions is difficult to quantify and directly credit to enforcement activities. We also recognize, however, and hope that others do as well, the critical role that enforcement plays in the overall objective to elevate salmonid populations. Without question, salmonid fish are being lost and critical habitat damaged within ceded lands as a result of inadequate enforcement. An organized evaluation of desired and actual achievement as they relate to biological outcomes will be used to analyze the impact of this program. Detailed records involving all activities resulting from this project will be maintained and used to measure project effectiveness and redirect as necessary ongoing efforts. Number of officer contacts, warnings, and arrests that are directly related to illegal harvest, water use, or land-use activities impacting salmonid fish, will serve as one method of measurement. Perhaps more valuable however, will be the information gathered under other BPA funded projects positively impacted by the activities proposed within this text. We expect that each of the following projects will benefit from the proposed activities 1. BPA Project #20127-Walla Walla Basin Natural Production Monitoring and Evaluation 2. BPA Project #9000501-Umatilla Basin Natural Production Monitoring and Evaluation 3. BPA Project #87100010-Umatilla Basin Habitat Enhancement 4.

FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $258,830
% change from forecast -39.9%

Reason for change in estimated budget

Fish and Wildlife enforcement projects in FY 1999 and FY 2000 were delayed or unfunded as per pending NPPC action. This project was not funded during the Councils' 1999 "decision period". Recent decisions by the Council have resulted in continuation of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement projects. This project previously projected FY 2001 funding needs based on 3 FTE. Since that time, 1 FTE has been secured through non-BPA cost share sources. The current proposed budget has decreased due to a reduced need for only 2 FTE.

Reason for change in scope

Scope same as that in years previously funded.
