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

Biological Outcomes of this project: This project was designed jointly to address fisheries needs throughout the blocked area. Currently, a great deal of blocked area fisheries information exists but is not available to the managers. Much of the data collected throughout the blocked area is in hard copy form, in file cabinets, unanalyzed. This project will serve to input existing data, analyze existing data, coordinate collection methodologies, identify critical data gaps, and recommend research that will fill data gaps. Coordination and data sharing will eliminate research redundancy, thus streamlining funding sources (BPA and other sources). The principle biological outcome will be a full accounting of population composition and structure, relative densities, species interactions and habitat quality and availability for the entire blocked area.
Biological Data: Spatial information, in GIS format, that links historical data collection and ongoing collections to the water bodies within the blocked area.

Total estimated budget

Total FY 2001 project cost $485,000
Amount anticipated from previously committed BPA Funds $ 0
Total FY 2001 budget request $485,000
FY 2001 forecast from 2000 $438,000
% change from forecast 10.7%

Reason for change in estimated budget

This is a $47,000 (10.7%) increase from the 2000 projection spread over the 4 represented fish managers in the Joint Stock Project. The original projection was estimated while the storage facility and analysis system was still in the state of development. As data was compiled, a more accurate scope and budget to fill the data voids was developed.

Reason for change in scope

One of the primary goals of this project is to avoid having the database become a simple repository of information. Functionally it should sort the existing information and be used to drive the scope from year to year. The collection of existing information is beginning to drive the scope.
