Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: The only constrains that may cause schedule changes or delays would be the problem of hiring a qualified FTE to participate in meetings. Also, the problem of possibly not being able to find sufficient juvenile fish for release.

Comment:

Comments:

Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Incomplete It is not clear from the proposal exactly what techniques are being proposed to restore anadromous fish.

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Incomplete: There is insufficient information to determine the feasibility of this project. This project is listed inappropriately as a flow/survival study when it appears to be a supplementation study.

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Incomplete The objectives are a mix of supplementation, watershed, and planning and there is insufficient information to judge the likelihood of their being met.

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Incomplete Insufficient information to judge.

Comment:

Returning anadromous fish to the Owyhee is a worthy goal, but the proposed work is not technically convincing. Getting the fish over Hells Canyon Dam may be the easiest part of the proposed work. The effects of non-native predator fish, high water temperatures, and agricultural factors are not addressed in the proposal; these are likely of high importance and must be considered in designing a convincing plan.
