Section 2a: Description (Species Information)
Target Species Oncorhynchus nerka (sockeye)

Provide explanations as to why the following alternative funding solutions are not feasible and will jeopardize the project:
Reduction in existing scope of project:
Deferral of existing work elements to later date:

Section 2b: Description (Location Information)
Location(s) at which the action will be implemented
Latitude Longitude Location Description
43.979 -114.877 Sawtooth Valley lakes

Is this/Are these the same study location(s) that was/were identified in the original proposal? Yes

Condition/situation creating the need for the modification:
Is the situation the result of a catastrophic event that occurred within the existing location? No
Has a habitat/population/mechanical/structural dilemma developed in the proposed study location since the contract was signed with BPA? Yes

Section 2c: Description (Work Element Information)
What work elements in the existing proposal does the proposed modification address?
Work Element Work Element Title
157 complete data collection of all biological and limnological variables

Proposed action to achieve the objective(s) Due to the archaic condition of our limnological sampling gear, new equipment must be purchased to fulfill our limnology sampling commitments. It was brought to our attention that our equipment is so outdated that no one is able to fix it if it were to fail. It was also noted by several dealers we contacted that the equipment has exceeded its usual lifespan without a critical failure. This sampling is necessary to comply with our ID Dept. of Environmental Quality permit issued for the nutrient enhancement portion of this project. Data collected with this equipment is also used for us to estimate nursery lake carrying capacities and make stocking recommendations for progeny from the captive broodstock program. Due to our budget being reduced in FY07 we have been unable to effectively keep up with maintenance on most equipment purchased for this project.

Does not implementing this modification jeopardize the ability to achieve existing biological objectives of this project, as well as other projects? Yes
