CLOSED: Shasta Springs Ranches Irrigation Efficiency Study RFP

Submission deadline passed.
The Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC) and California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) are seeking an engineering consultant to submit a competitive bid to develop an irrigation efficiency study for the Shasta Springs Ranches. The purpose of the study will be to identify potential opportunities to reduce surface water use on the Shasta Springs Ranches. These potential water savings will provide a basis for negotiations to increase in‐stream flows in the Shasta River and Parks Creek to benefit salmon and steelhead. The properties are located approximately 4 miles below Lake Shastina, in Siskiyou County. The project will include an analysis of surface water and groundwater diversions on the Shasta Springs Ranches. The study will result in recommendations for modifying irrigation practices based on the premise that opportunities exist to maintain ranch productivity; allow the ranch to remain profitable and reduce, if possible, surface water diversions from the Shasta River and Parks Creek; which may make water available to improve conditions for fish.

Submission deadline passed.
Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC), in cooperation with the National Marine Fisheries Service, Alaska Fisheries Science Center and Regional Office (NMFS) and the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC), proposes to contract for the recruitment, selection, employment, supervision and deployment of 4 to 8 NMFS-certified groundfish observers to assist in research being conducted in the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska on halibut longline vessels. The project will be conducted in the Gulf of Alaska in April and May 2008 and in the Bering Sea in July and August 2008, with two vessels fishing concurrently in each location. The total observer coverage needed is expected to be approximately 16 observer months, subject to research requirements.

The goal of this study is to compare and evaluate the effectiveness of electronic monitoring (EM) and the currently utilized National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), North Pacific Groundfish Observer Program (NPGOP) monitoring methods to operate effectively in a commercial longline (hook-and-line) setting. This is a cooperative study with the NMFS, International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC), Pacific States Marine Fishery Commission (PSMFC), and the commercial fishing industry.
