Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: The window of opportunity for collecting milt from adult salmon in is narrow. The design of this proposal is to take milt from males which have already naturally spawned (note that the volumes of necessary for cryopreservation are small, and that spent males remain an adequate source of milt for this purpose). It is envisioned that a consensus process will determine which stocks this project will ultimately select, stocks will be dropped from consideration if there are any concerns about their abundance. Of the initial list, a range of schedule constraints exists: Deschutes fall chinook spawning is estimated to occur from late September to mid-December. Spring chinook surveys in the Warm Springs river indicates that spawning begins in mid- to late August and is completed by the last week in September (Lindsay et al. 1989). The inclusion of the Deschute River in this project has not been determined. Fall chinook in the Hanford Reach spawn from late October, peak in mid to late November, and taper off into December. Another candidate basin is the Klickitat. Spring chinook spawning in the Klickitat peaks in late August and early September. Winter Steelhead spawning in the Klickitat occurs from March through June. Summer steelhead, if selected, spawn from January through March.Preparation for this field work should commence early in 1999.

Comments:

Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Incomplete: The need to preserve gametes of healthy populations does not seem like a sound principle. If this is a valid need then the proposal appears acceptable.

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Yes

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Yes

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Yes:

Comment:

This proposal is well written and generally technically complete. The proposal should specify where the gametes will be collected. The programmatic need is not well defined, but ESA concerns make this a critical area for research and management activities. The project should be funded.
