The Council, in coordination with Bonneville Power Administration (Bonneville) is requesting information from white sturgeon managers and scientists on ready-to-implement Columbia and Snake River White Sturgeon assessments. We are inviting responses regarding ready-to-implement Columbia and Snake River White Sturgeon assessments pertaining to one or more of the following topics: population status, spawning success, spawning habitat use or susceptibility to predation.
The Council is working with Bonneville to scope activities and make funds available during fiscal years 2017-2018 to implement projects to address emerging priorities from the Council’s 2014 Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program. Approximately $300,000 per fiscal year is currently available for these activities. Funding amounts could change depending on the availability of funds and the needs of other emerging priorities. Proponents are encouraged to suggest work that could be accomplished in preferably one to two fiscal years.
Follow the instructions below, and respond by February 28, 2017. Please forward to others who might be interested. Thanks.
