Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund

Chief Scientist Comments: This project is an integral part of a cluster of projects aimed at restoring damaged subsistence resources. Despite a limited success in restoring and supplementing Kametolook River coho thus far, the project is important because it directly addresses a subsistence issue, has strong community involvement, and holds potential for some success. There is a strong educational component as well. Fund final year of activities in FY 02, including project closeout.

Executive Director Recommendation: Fund

Executive Director Comments: Fund, including new objective related to investigating nearby coho stocks as potential brood sources. This project is working to enhance a small coho salmon run in the Kametolook River near the Alaska Peninsula village of Perryville as a replacement for other subsistence resources lost or reduced due to the oil spill. The project has a strong community involvement component. FY 02 is expected to be the final year of Trustee Council funding, even though it is unlikely that the run will be self sustaining in the foreseeable future.
