Total estimated budget

Total FY 2001 project cost $789,642
Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $789,642
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $365,000
% change from forecast 116.3%


Reason for change in estimated budget

Change in the scope-of-work to include hatchery/wild harvest evaluation, native salmonid presence/absence survey and evaluation for hatchery utilization potential and initiation of ecological interaction investigations in selected lacustrine habitats.


Reason for change in scope

All the aforementioned items were critical elements identified in the ISRP review of this project. While the project satisfactorily addressed the utilization of non-native species/stocks, the ISRP identified hatchery/wild interatctions, ecological interations, potential use of native stock in the hatchery program and return to creel of hatchery vs naturally producing stocks as important elements to be addressed by this project. The very same elements were also central to hatchery reform identified in the Council's APR Report, therefore they have become important issues for this project to address.
