Section 2a: Description (Species Information)
Target Species Oncorhynchus mykiss (rainbow trout)

Provide explanations as to why the following alternative funding solutions are not feasible and will jeopardize the project:
Reduction in existing scope of project: Modification for FY2010.
Our request for additional appropriations for fish food purchase has come about as a result of a loss of fish food allotment from an ALEA grant provided by WDFW.
This grant was provided for unfunded volunteer wetlands projects.
Because of the increase in fish production from our origin to the present 750,000 fish per year we are using about 70,000 lbs. of fish food annually.
The ALEA grant is no longer available.

We have been adding budget money toward fish food, but only to the extent of 19,708.00 annually.
The annual cost of 70,000 lbs. of fish food at current rates plus tax is about $48,000.00.
We are about $29,000.00 shy of meeting that cost.

We are a cooperative partner with the BPA funded Spokane Tribal Hatchery and the BPA funded Sherman Creek Hatchery managed by the WDFW.
We are rearing 750,000 triploid rainbows in the blocked area above Grand Coulee Dam.

Deferral of existing work elements to later date: We transfer fish into our net pens in mid September so our available funds will run out in late October.

Section 2b: Description (Location Information)
Location(s) at which the action will be implemented
Latitude Longitude Location Description
47.852273 118.351544 Seven Bays, Wa. (Lake Roosevelt)

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
63 Rear Fish (fish food)

Proposed action to achieve the objective(s)

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

Explain: A request for an in year budget modification to our contract is due to a loss of anĀ  ALEA grant sponsored by the WDFW
In past years when the net pen program was in it's infancy, and basically unfunded, the WDFW provided fish food.
The program has grown from a few pens to over 40 pens and 750,000 Triploid Rainbow.
The program has grown to the point of feeding approximately 70,000 pounds of fish food annually.
This locks out some unfunded volunteer programs around the state which surely need help.
The notification of the loss of the ALEA grant takes effect in the fy2010 budget year which for our program starts October first.
