Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: Constraints are associated with the ability to effectively fish traps during high water discharge and debris loads in the Imnaha River relative to safe smolt trap operations. Additional resources to modify the trap site into a permanent facility would allow greater effectiveness, reliability and ability to comprehensively monitor juvenile and smolt emigration, yield and survival of natural and hatchery chinook salmon and steelhead trout.

Comment:

This proposal is for work that provides valuable research data on life histories. However, the methods are vague and results to date are not explained. The proposal describes a lack of coordination with project 8712700; more efforts should be made to coordinate the projects.
