On March 14, 2003, Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) solicited for proposals
which would fill research gaps needed for the successful implementation of the National
Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) 2000 FCRPS Biological Opinion.
Fiscal Year 2002 Innovative Project Proposal Solicitation - BPA defines innovative
projects as those which rely primarily on a method or technology that (1) has not
previously been used in a fish or wildlife project in the Pacific Northwest, or
(2) although used in other projects, has not previously been used in an application
of this kind. The purpose of "innovative" projects is to explore new methods and
technologies, and new applications for existing methods and technologies, to directly
benefit fish and wildlife.
FY 2001 Innovative - In 1999, the Independent Scientific Review Panel (ISRP) recommended
that the Northwest Power Planning Council establish a special funding category to
encourage innovative projects for the Council's Fish and Wildlife Program.
