Reviews and recommendations

This information was not provided on the original proposals, but was generated during the review process.

Recommendation:
Fundable if funds available
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Presentation: This project is intended to work in cooperation with the lower river sturgeon project 8605000. The goal is to index populations and identify habitat availability in Lake Roosevelt and Rufus Woods Lake. Lake Roosevelt sturgeon are a transboundary population of about 600 individuals and there has been little recruitment during the last 20-30 years. The sponsors are not sure that data collected under project 8605000 will answer the questions for Lake Roosevelt sturgeon. This 3-year project has not been funded in the past and a cooperative (with WDFW) sampling program could start this year.

Questions/Answers:

Has the previous work provided enough management information? Answer: There has not been much sturgeon work done on the reservoir. The co managers need information from other projects (including 8605000). Habitat mapping conducted under another project will fold into this project. The population above lake Roosevelt needs to be monitored but this is outside the scope of the other sturgeon projects.

Screening Criteria: Yes

Technical Criteria: No. Tasks and objectives are not clearly defined.

Programmatic Criteria: Yes. Can the white sturgeon monitoring be part of the Lake Roosevelt Monitoring Project (9404300)?

General Comment: The relation to project 8605000 seems unclear.

Recommendation:
Inadequate proposal, adequate purpose
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

This proposal describes the need for the activity but no approach is given. Although the project is to assess factors limiting sturgeon, the proposal does not clearly address measurement and assessment of these. This is a continuing project, but insufficient project history is given. The description of methods is too vague to ensure that the objectives are obtainable.
