Review cycleFY 1999
Province / SubbasinLower Snake / Clearwater
Short descriptionData characterizing unsuccessful smolts will enable us to modify hatchery practices, such as size at release, rearing strategy, or release site, to rear a more effective smolt and reduce negative interactions with wild steelhead produced in the subbasin.

Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: Major milestones: Annual reports describing information obtained and data analysis will be distributed early each fiscal year following data collection. Annual reports will contain, at a minimum, emigration success, estimate of residual steelhead, and a summary of characteristics and capture time of residual steelhead. Final project report will include analysis of relations between residualism rate, persistence of residuals, hatchery practices, and in-river conditions. If possible, we will report changes in hatchery practices which can be used to reduce residualism of steelhead smolts.

Recommendation:
Inadequate, perhaps technically sound if coordinated with proposal 9082 (below)
Date:

Comment:

This proposal is generally well written; however, there is not adequate justification of the need for the work. The problem to be studied is not clearly described and the proposal does not show how the study addresses programmatic needs. The question to be addressed appears to be of interest but not of high importance. The proposal also does not show that the goals of the study are reachable with the study described. The proposal does not identify the treatments and controls for the experiment. How many "treatments" (differing in hatchery or release regimens) are there? Exactly what hatchery practices will be tested? How was it determined that the sampling effort would be sufficient? The experimental design is probably adequate if coordinated with proposal 9082, but the proposal does not detail its connection with proposal 9082, although the principal investigators have the same address, and the subjects seem related.
