Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: Study fish not made available by CEDC. Describe major milestones if necessary. Fish are normally transferred to CEDC at subyearling-age from Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife facilities (Willamette River hatchery) in November and reared through the winter to yearling-age for release in the spring. If fish were unavailable for net-pen rearing, they would be unavailable for this study. In addition, the proposed February tagging is contingent upon representative fish attaining sufficient size (>125-mm fork-length) for tagging.

Recommendation:
Do Not Fund
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

urgent. Proposed activities would not produce significant near-term survival improvement nor risk a lost opportunity within the next 1-3 years.

Duplicates ongoing work. Some or all of proposed activities are similar or identical to work already funded. Better knowledge or coordination of past or ongoing projects would have reduced or eliminated project need.

Questionable management value. Proposal was either incomplete but did not provide adequate information to determine whether management criteria were met or complete but did not meet critical management criteria.


Recommendation:
Inadequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

The study design is inadequate and not well defined. The idea to force fish into the ocean before they naturally would is not based on sound science. There is no indication of what level of sampling may be necessary to make the intended inferences. The sampling size described appears extremely small. The proposal’s linkage to Youngs Bay net pen study is good.
