Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: Project objective 1 is updated annually based on the concerns and requests of Columbia basin fish managers and their needs. Objective 2 carries over annually and provides the long term evaluation needed to develop new management goals based on past experience. Objectives that outline tasks specific to method development (3) or evaluate particular life history stages such as rearing, are designed as single year projects (4), with the replication necessary for anadromous species generally provided by three years of release data, and should include some provision for monitoring and evaluation of adult returns.

Comment:

Notwithstanding their overall evaluation, ISRP reviewers note their belief that time-travel analysis is outdated and that the title of the proposal does not seem to fit the objectives and tasks proposed. Documentation of the need for continuing consultation on interagency, cooperative projects should be strengthened. This project seems to be headed into a long-term monitoring program. The review team asks if this is the best location for maintaining a long-term database and if the data are available via Streamnet.
