9603301 Yakima River Fall Chinook Suppl-O&M Essential for YKFP's all stock initiative for experimental purposes for supplementation.
9603302 Yakima River Coho Restoratin-O&M Essential for YKFP's all stock initiative for experimental purposes for supplementation.
9506404 Policy/Tech Involvement/Planning - YKFP Supports the required co-manager process for the YKFP.
9506406 Monitoring of Supplementation Response Variables for YKFP. Essential for adequate M&E planning and technical participation as co-manager of the YKFP.
9506402 Upper Yakima Species Interaction Studies Vital M&E function relative to behavior of multi species within the Yakima Basin for the YKFP. Defines competitive/ecological interaction.

Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Yes

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Yes

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Incomplete: Minor corrections needed. Need to include a timeline or some target dates for completion of objectives.

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Incomplete: Same as no.3 above, plus data on past project costs need to be included.

Fund as proposed - ends after FY99
Recommendation:
YKFP Inadequate proposal, adequate purpose as a set
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

This proposal needs to be more clearly written: the work for FY99 is not specified, the stage of progress is unclear, the short description does not match the objectives listed in Section 4, and the project title and work described do not match. The proposal provides little detail on the hatchery construction. For example, it does not specify the number of ponds to be built. The proposal provides adequate detail on objectives, history of the project and historical runs. However, the methods for monitoring are not well explained nor are production constraints. The smolt to adult survival rate is reported but evidence for these figures is not documented. The proposal is related to many projects but not the supervision project. This is large-scale production but the assumptions regarding supplementation are not described well enough to justify the scope of the project.
