Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Yes:

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Yes

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Incomplete: Show what will have been already done in FY98 and what is proposed specifically for FY99. What can be modeled vs field tested? Add further discussion of effects of tags on behavior.

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Incomplete: Additional budget details would help. Staffing requirements, Travel 30k?

Comment:

ISRP reviewers comment that this is a good study with good peer-reviewed publications. The ability to remotely monitor the vertical movements of individual juvenile salmonids is a particularly worthy objective given the need to better understand the natural migration patterns of juveniles through dams and reservoirs. One reviewer questions whether this project should have a stronger working relationship with the project for monitoring of gas bubble disease in adults.
