Comment:

The AFM recommend funding this project at $200K from the ESA reserve account through FY00; therefore, the CBFWA recommendation for Direct Program Funding is $0.00.
Recommendation:
Inadequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998

Comment:

The proposal does not provide sufficient evidence that the estimations of predator population sizes can actually be carried out using mid-water trawl technology. It would be a major undertaking to assess the effects of three highly migratory piscivores on juvenile Columbia River salmon and the results may not be worthwhile. The proposal’s focus is very narrow and is vague on tests of significance and the relationship between juvenile predation and adult returns. This proposal may be useful as a one-year pilot project to demonstrate the feasibility of the survey technology.
