Final Round ISRP Comment:
General comments on the suite of Stanley Basin sockeye proposals are provided under proposal 199107200. Additional information regarding the Stanley Basin sockeye salmon and captive rearing strategies is discussed in the report's programmatic section.

This proposal is to develop a new culture facility as part of the sockeye salmon recovery effort. The objective is to produce fish for release. "The long-term plan, which this proposal addresses, is designed to relocate sockeye incubation and rearing responsibilities from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game Sawtooth Fish Hatchery and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's Oxbow Fish Hatchery to a new, Idaho facility developed specifically to meet the incubation and rearing needs of the program." The identity of the facility is not revealed. Cost would be $6 million plus to purchase and remodel. Nothing is mentioned about existing facilities that would be released for other use?

A compelling need for this facility is not demonstrated. How more production would solve the problem of low return numbers of anadromous adults is not explained.

The new facility location is not identified making it impossible to assess potential adverse effects from the proposed culture facility. Studies are underway to assess relations with bull trout and rainbow trout. These results should be presented as soon as possible.
