Relevant RPAs based upon NMFS & BPA Review

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


Biological Outcomes of this project: Stocking sockeye from the captive broodstock program will have minimal effects on lower trophic levels species composition and densities. Lakes will only be fertilized when O. nerka biomass approaches carrying capacities for each lake.
Biological Data: All pelagic trophic levels including primary production have been measured for seven years.
