Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: The occurrence of fish with head injuries is somewhat variable from year to year. The level of project effort and need for outyear funding will depend on the occurrence and availability of sufficient injured fish to conduct the study.

Comment:

This proposal represents a commendable group effort. Notwithstanding the adequate rating, ISRP reviewers concluded that the proposal does not adequately establish a link between headburns and mortality, and question how significant is this injury, including the spatial extent of the problem. The reviewers also question if there will be an adequate fish population for this study and if three years are adequate to test various river flows.
