The Bonneville Power Administration is proposing to fund the expansion of the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho’s Native Fish Aquaculture Program. The program serves two purposes; to protect and restore Kootenai River white sturgeon listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act, and to initiate an experimental burbot aquaculture program. The Tribe has proposed to expand existing facilities and construct a new hatchery on its property at the confluence of the Moyie and Kootentai Rivers near Bonners Ferry, Boundary County in Idaho. Please tell us what you think we should consider during the environmental assessment of this proposal. You may contact Ted Gresh with BPA at 503-230-5756, or 800-622-4519 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
