1. Fishery Improvements: This supplemental appropriation request would bring the department into statutory compliance with the $2.00 earmarked from each combination and fishing license which is to be used “for construction, repair and rehabilitation of state fish hatcheries, fishing lakes, or reservoirs”, as required by Idaho Code 36-107c.

2. Federal Funded Fisheries Positions: Provides federal funds for four positions including a senior fisheries biologist to work with design and construction of fish screens and diversions in the Salmon, Lemhi and Pahsimeroi drainages; a fisheries biologist and technician for the chinook captive breeding project, and a senior fisheries biologist for Dworshak Dam to evaluate an experimental strobe light kokanee project. Continued financial support of these positions is completely dependent upon 100% federal funds.

3. (a third supplemental for EPA funds was held until the 2001 budget setting)
