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: The project is expected to increase resident salmonid harvests for Tribal members while minimizing harvest impacts to native stocks in the Clearwater Subbasin. Managed fisheries created in closed pond systems minimize the genetic impact on the natural riverine ecosystem by preventing access of hatchery fish to the natural environment while allowing Tribal members to conduct subsistence fisheries. Watershed based improvents benefits the entire ecosystem. In addition, area wildlife is positively impacted as the aquatic environment and wetlands created by the ponds increase the productivity and habitat of the areas, providing nursery conditions for a myriad of species.
Biological Data: Data derived from project activities to help measure project success and outcomes include: pond water quality, physical characteristics, flow, fish growth, fish condition, fisher effort, harvest rate and harvest.

Objective Task Duration in FYs Estimated 2001 cost Subcontractor
1. Manage and monitor the pond habitat and fish at existing facilities to support the annual harvest goal of 4750 kg of resident salmonids. a. Monitor temperature, oxygen, depth, and other pertinent chemical, biological, and habitat parameters in order to manage existing fisheries. 5 $ 51,930  
b. Monitor and evaluate effects of watershed use on water quality and habitat quantity. Assess fisheries response to land use practices (grazing, logging,and agricultural) in the watershed and gauge implemented best management practices (BMPs). 5 $ 12,984  
c. Conduct periodic site maintenance to maintain structural integrity of the dams and pond sites, assure access, and maintain habitat quality to maximize potential carrying capacity and fish harvest. 5 $ 38,950  
d. Monitor fish growth and condition. reflecting health of the fish. 5 $ 25,965  
2. Manage and monitor fisheries at existing resident fish pond facilities to provide 4750 kg of resident salmonids annually. e. Monitor harvest 5 $103,860  
f. Evaluate and refine individual fishery management and stocking plans based on fish health, growth, condition (Task d), and harvest information (Task e) to maximize fish growth, condition, and harvest. 5 $ 25,965
