Key steps for successfully implementing the selected alternative (Management Alternative B as detailed in the FEIS) include but are not limited to: • Lakes which are currently fishless will remain so in the future; • High densities of reproducing fish will be removed from up to 27 lakes; • Stocking will continue in up to 42 lakes, with a long-term goal of utilizing only fish incapable of reproducing and establishing self-sustaining populations; and • Long term monitoring of the status of native species, including amphibians and benthic macro vertebrates, will be maintained. Implementation of Management Alternative B requires authorization from Congress that fish stocking is appropriate within North Cascades National Park Complex. In addition to the selected alternative, the Draft EIS and FEIS also assessed the foreseeable environmental consequences a No Action alternative and two additional ‘‘action’’ alternatives. As documented in the Draft EIS and FEIS, Management Alternative D was deemed to be the ‘‘environmentally preferred’’ course of action.

community, national security agencies, academia, and private sector 
users. The USGS Land Remote Sensing Program (LRS) initiated this 
information collection as part of a regulation mandate to lead efforts
