Section 7. Abstract


This project provides support through the Department of Energy for one member (of 11) of the Independent Scientific Advisory Board (ISAB), successor to the Independent Scientific Group called for in Measure 3.2B.1 of the Northwest Power Planning Council’s Fish and Wildlife Program (FWP to provide scientific advice to the Council. The ISAB has also been constituted to advise the National Marine Fisheries Service on its Endangered Species Act responsibilities for the Columbia River Basin. The ISAB responds to specific questions posed by the Council or NMFS through formal requests. The ISAB meets regularly (usually monthly) to discuss issues and develop consensus reports to the Council and NMFS. The individual supported by this project serves on the Executive and Mainstem committees, and prepares drafts of reports within his area of expertise (salmon, mainstem habitat, temperature, dissolved gas, flow/survival, passage) for full ISAB discussion and consensus. The expected outcome is provision of timely and scientifically accurate advice to the Council and NMFS. Results are monitored by topical reports that respond to specific questions posed by the Council and NMFS.
