Project Summary

Project 2007-073-00 - Dynamics of Gravel Spawning Beds in Lake Pend Oreille, ID
Project Number:
2007-073-00
Title:
Dynamics of Gravel Spawning Beds in Lake Pend Oreille, ID
Summary:
Observations and modeling of the effects of waves and currents on sediments in kokanee spawing habitat in Lake Pend Oreille, ID. The long-term goal is to provide tools to manage lake levels & shoreline sediments to optimize habitat for bull trout forage.

Final Round ISRP Date: None
Final Round ISRP Rating: Does Not Meet Scientific Review Criteria
Final Round ISRP Comment:
This is a well-done proposal with technically sound methods and well-qualified principal investigators, but the problem has already been addressed in Lake Pend Oreille. This proposal is likely five years too late. It is an interesting research project but geared to advancing knowledge of the dynamics of deepwater substrate, not to benefiting fish resources. IDFG proposal 199404700 shows how kokanee spawning gravel can be made available by managing lake level, which is being done, and makes it clear that there is no longer a problem for this proposal to address.
