To provide trout for the resident fish substitution portion of the program; specifically to the Duck Valley Reservation and the Fort Hall Reservation. If the facility is large enough (ie. has sufficient water), then surplus eggs will be provided to the BPA programs throughout the basin without charge. Funding for would be directed toward operations and maintainance of the facility.

Annual reports and technical papers
1992 Preliminary Feasibility study, 1995 Hatchery Master Plan.
Specific measureable objectives
Research potential for native fish restoration. If successful, adult cutthroat and redband brood stock will be spawned in the hatchery to provide eggs, fingerlings, and catchable trout for Duck Valley and Fort Hall Reservations. Cutthroat brood stock will be spawned to provide 350,000 eggs for the Fort Hall Reservation. Redband will be spawned to provide Duck Valley Reservation with 350,000 eggs, 245,000 fingerlings and 94,000 catchables. Rainbow trout will be raised to provide heavily fished enclosed waters on both reservations with fish.
Underlying assumptions or critical constraints
Hatchery was purchased during 1996.
Collect tissue samples from local populations of native fish to assess genetic purity, collect adult fish from genetically pure populations and use them as brood stock for the hatchery. Every year brood stock would be replaced with wild fish at a rate of 20 - 30%. Eyed eggs will be outplanted to hatch-boxes.
Brief schedule of activities
1) Complete purchase of hatchery, rebuilding necessary components. 2) Operation and maintenance of hatchery. 3) Collection and introduction of brood stock.
Fish are needed to help recover native populations of cutthroat on the Fort Hall Reservation and redband trout on the Duck Valley Reservation, and to provide catchable rainbow trout for economic development on the Duck Valley Reservation.
Whether we will be able to purchase the hatchery. Whether we can successfully hold and spawn native brood stock and outplant eyed eggs.
Summary of expected outcome
Expect above numbers and species of fish to be produced. Restoration and recovery of native fisheries.
Dependencies/opportunities for cooperation
Partnership between Fort Hall and Duck Valley. Cooperation with IDFG, ODFW, BPT.
Hatch-box survival, adult returns where natives are re-introduced, weirs to exclude non-native species.
