9403300 Fish Passage Center [PSMFC] Uses the in-season smolt index passage information that is compiled and provided by the FPC's database center in the RealTime Passage Index Forecaster program to generate on-line forecasts of in-season passage for ESA-listed wild chinook and steelhead. No
9507000 Evaluation Effectiveness Flow Augmentation in the Snake River [BioAnalysts] Provides opportunity to explore and perhaps resolve some remaining issues identified in Phase I of Project 950700 and apply analytical tools and capability to optimally target timing of flow augmentation with migratory timing. No
9600600 PATH Facilitation, Technical Assistance & Peer Review [ESSA] Performs tasks that analyze and interpret tagging data in ways that other research entities currently do not perform. Provides an added-value to historical tagging data by testing hypotheses, estimating parameters, and modeling interrelationships. No
9600800 PATH Participation by State & Tribal Agencies [ODFW] Performs analyses of historical tagging data and publishes reports which are made available to PATH. No
9601700 Technical Support for PATH [BioAnalysts] Performs analyses of tagging data which is provided to PATH as requested. No
9503400 EW Program Support [BPA-UW Provides technical assistance and statistical support related to BPA's internal assessment, peer review, and monitoring and evaluation requirements. No
9107200 Sockeye Salmon Captive Broodstock [IDFG] Beginning in 1997, this UW project applied Program RealTime to make run-timing predictions for Redfish Lake sockeye available for use by the TMT and fisheries community. No

Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

Project was initiated in 1991 in response to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the subsequent 1994 FWP call for regional analytical methods for monitoring and evaluation. The project supports BPA’s need for independent assessment and provides statistical support for the Northwest fisheries community by analyzing historical tagging data to investigate mitigation dynamics and provide real-time analysis to monitor outmigration timing and water budgets. Results are documented in technical papers and interactive Internet presentations. This project is anticipated to continue in some form beyond 2002 providing statistical support to the adaptive management monitoring and evaluation framework of the FWP.

Criteria 1: Technical Criteria - Incomplete: This proposal appears to be an almost complete overlap with project # 8910700.

Criteria 2: Objectives Criteria - Incomplete:

Criteria 3: Milestones Criteria - Incomplete

Criteria 4: Resources Criteria - Incomplete: High $ - is this that important?


CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Do Not Fund
Date:
May 13, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Duplicates FPC

ISRP Review , ISRP 1998-1 Recommendation:
Adequate
Date:
Jun 18, 1998
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
ISRP reviewers comment that this well-written proposal represents good basic research. This proposed work by a non-government agency provides valuable oversight for analysis of parameters such as: adult return rates, ocean survival, effectiveness of transportation, and smolt survival. The reviewers note that historic data have been impressively analyzed, but publications of results in peer reviewed journals are largely missing -- the ISRP encourages peer-reviewed publication of results. The reviewers also question whether the most efficient relationship exists between this project and the proposed project 9302900 (Survival estimates for the passage of juvenile salmonids through dams and reservoirs).
