Comment:

Technical Issue: Need to clearly describe what work is going on in FY98, and what specifically is going to be done in FY99 (new activities).

Technical Issue: How does budget increase from FY98 relate to FY99 work and funding?

Technical Issue: Page 11 of the proposal (steps 1-5) seems to indicate the logical sequence of needs and actions and this needs to be more clearly threaded through the proposal (formatting problem).

Technical Issue: Proposal needs significant modification to clearly describe how the techniques are valid and appropriate to achieve the objectives, and the specific fish and wildlife benefit.

Comment:

The technical justification is too vague. The general description of YKFP is good. It was difficult to determine whether this is a project to implement watershed analysis or a supplementation project. The proposal’s integration with other YKFP projects is well done. The earlier completion of the watershed analysis is a positive feature, but the proposal gives no interpretation or summary of the results of that analysis. The proposal gives no indication how the watershed analysis affects management decisions. How will the fish be sampled? How will the fishways be improved? The objectives in section 7.b are not consistent with objectives stated elsewhere.
