Reviews and recommendations

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

Recommendation:
Pass (Fundable)
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Technical Issue: Need to describe the coordination with project 9088.

Technical Issue: Provide a brief explanation about the Sustainable Fisheries Foundation.

Technical Issue: Unclear if the target is a management plan for the entire Cowlitz or individual watersheds within the Cowlitz.


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.

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:
Adequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

ISRP reviewers commend this proposal as well prepared and impressively stated. It is a good effort to systematically address preparation of a Cowlitz plan, although (1) the one-year effort may be overly ambitious for a very modest budget and (2) an analysis of the apparent failure of earlier efforts would be helpful. Links with the Fish and Wildlife Program, the watershed, and watershed councils are well defined, along with tasks and objectives.
