Independent Scientific Review Panel Final Review (August 31, 2006) [Download full document]

Recommendation: Fundable in part
Comments: The response includes a lengthy passage taken apparently verbatim from a response to an ISRP review of the Lake Roosevelt kokanee hatchery program - Project 199404300. While there do appear to be some parallels between the Lake Roosevelt and Galbraith Springs situations, there was very little in the response that directly addressed the ISRP's specific concerns about funding the kokanee propagation effort at Galbraith Springs. According to project sponsors, the kokanee hatchery effort will be continued "for the Tribe to engage in a long awaited opportunity to revitalize its connection to the Spokane and Columbia River fisheries; culturally, religiously and in ways that can’t be explained scientifically." Therefore, it does not appear that their argument for funding this work rests primarily on scientific grounds, and there appears to be little basis to re-evaluate the proposal scientifically.

The ISRP maintains its preliminary recommendation of "Fundable in part" for the continued redband and triploid rainbow production only. The ISRP recommends that only female triploids be stocked, because male triploids (in mixed sex production lots) will engage in courtship behavior with native trout, possibly leading to gamete waste (from the native trout). The ISRP notes that standardized Quality Assurance/Quality Control protocols are not yet established for using sterile female triploids to provide recreational angling in waters inhabited by native trout. Large-scale production of triploid female rainbow trout is not 100% effective. Sponsors should have the production lots they stock evaluated for the percentage of triploids, and report this as part of the project monitoring. The efficacy of avoiding hybridization between stocked and native trout is unknown when less than 100% of the stocked fish are triploids. Ongoing evaluation of hybridization in contemporaneous native trout populations will be needed in the future. Stocking triploid females to provide recreational angling in regions with highly sensitive native populations is not yet justified. See Kozfkay, J. R., J. C. Dillon, and D. J. Schill. 2006. Routine use of sterile fish in salmonid sport fisheries: are we there yet? Fisheries 31(8):392 - 401.


Independent Scientific Review Panel Preliminary Review (June 2, 2006) [Download full document]

Recommendation: Fundable in part
Comments: This is a hatchery program that has been in existence since 1990. The efforts to produce a viable hatchery-based kokanee program have not been successful, so the ISRP recommends "not fundable" for projects or project elements directed to rearing and stocking, or habitat enhancement, for kokanee salmon in communities including walleye, bass (smallmouth or largemouth), northern pike, or lake trout unless populations of these predators can be reduced to and maintained at levels so low that they cannot control the abundance of kokanee salmon. Existing evidence, including results of Fish and Wildlife Program projects, does not show that kokanee populations can be successful under heavy predation. The proposal is fundable in part for the continued redband and triploid rainbow production only.

The proposal is clearly written, but much of it applies to the overall program. It is difficult to identify what applies specifically to Galbraith Springs.
