At the Northwest Power and Conservation Council’s December 22, 2010 request, the ISRP reviewed the Idaho Department of Fish and Game’s Master Plan for the Snake River Sockeye Program (#2007-402-00). The Springfield Hatchery Master Plan is intended to address the next phase in the Snake River Sockeye Captive Brood Program through construction of a new sockeye smolt production hatchery and implementation of associated program management goals. This is a Step 1 review in the Council’s Three Step Review Process. Step 1 is the feasibility stage, and all major components and elements of a project should be identified. This review focuses on the IDFG’s responses to the Step 1 scientific review elements specified by the Council. The ISRP finds that the Master Plan meets scientific review criteria (qualified) and recommends that IDFG address six issues during Step 2. See the attached report for details.
