Reviews and recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

Recommendation:
Not fundable
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Presentation: The sponsor did not give a presentation.

Questions/Comments:

Why is this a resident fish project? It appears to be more appropriate for anadromous fish.

Project does not address a Council Measure.

$8 million is a lot to test “what feels normal.” Normal hasn't been characterized.

Is this a company? Could they "sell" it if it worked?

Even if successful, what is application to resident fish?

Screening Criteria: No. Project does not meet the screening criteria.

Technical Criteria: No. Project fails to meet nearly all of the technical criteria.

Programmatic Criteria: No.


Recommendation:
Do Not Fund

This proposal is poorly written. The idea presented is not scientifically well justified. The work has no clear programmatic value.
