Comment:

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.

Comment:

ISRP reviewers offer their evaluation with some reservations. They note that the proposal is unrelated to other projects and studies, and may be overly ambitious, with more objectives than can be accomplished in a single year. Also, they ask if sonar responses can distinguish between shad and salmon, and if trawl data, beach seining and pursing will produce adequate results to help establish distribution patterns. Further, the reviewers express some concern with respect to mortality to non-target species caused by trawling, seining and shocking.
