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: With completion of scheduled 2001 tasks, the NPT expects to generate estimates of entrainment potential and entrainment survival of cultured sturgeon placed in Hells Canyon Reservoir. This will provide data critical to determining the feasibility of the project in terms of both potential biological risks and potential benefits.
Biological Data: Project data collected in 2000 is the only data available regarding entrainment potential of cultured sturgeon placed in Hells Canyon Reservoir. This existing data will be used in conjunction with data collected in 2001 to assess anticipated biological outcomes. Individual season specific use of habitat in the forebay of Hells Canyon Reservoir will be used to assess season specific entrainment potential of cultured sturgeon, along with any sonic tags data collected below the dam. To date there are no estimates of entrainment survival for white sturgeon. Observed entrainment survival from studies conducted during 2001, relative the control group, will be used as an estimate of entrainment survival.
