Other budget explanation

Schedule Constraints: NEPA determinations, significant impacts on other species by coho, inadequate funding, inability to get scientific measurements resulting in a change of experimental design , current environmental issues making restoration infeasible.


Reviews and recommendations

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

Recommendation:
Date:
May 13, 1998

Comment:

Comments:

Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Yes: Is the competition/predation part of this study necessary and over such a long period of time (i.e. coho are native and co-evolved with other salmonids in these streams. Is not the same work in the Yakima adequate for understanding the interactions in the Methow and Wenatchee?)

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Incomplete Use Abstract to refer to and describe this project. Summarize methods and excerpt from referenced document.

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Yes

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Incomplete: Additional budget details would be useful. Staffing requirements, Travel 50k.

Comment:

The first objective listed is to return natural production of coho to the area, but the technical section indicates that this project’s goal is to establish a hatchery population. It appears to be an artificial production/supplementation project presented as a natural production project. The proposal does not describe why coho have declined, and if the reasons for decline have been corrected. The methods section is incomplete. Snorkeling at night is not sufficient for monitoring populations and little other monitoring is described. This project relates to proposal 9086, but does not give a relationship to the Fish and Wildlife Program. The ISRP has significant reservations about this proposal.
