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.


Recommendation:
Inadequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

The proposal title "key" does not match the proposed objectives: to write a comprehensive book on fishes of the basin. The full proposal was too long for the Fish and Wildlife Program format, and was not included. The need is not justified (the work may be needed, but this is not demonstrated in the abbreviated proposal). No attempt was made to coordinate with other projects except to get information from them. The proposal does not provide context of what is already known about fishes in the system. The proposal ranked near the bottom of the set.
