Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: The inability to develop the fish image editor would require modification to how data is processed. Essentially we would continue to manually play-back the tapes as is currently done.


Reviews and recommendations

Comments:

Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Incomplete: To help define the scientific validity of this technique add a reference to Hatch et al. (1994). The proposal also needs to draw on data and results from previous years' monitoring to use as justification for continuing and expanding. Especially refer to the successes and limitations in annual reports.

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Yes

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Incomplete: Since your annual reports are 4 years behind, you need to provide explanation as to how you will better meet objectives in a more timely manner.

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Incomplete: See no.3 above.
