Section 7. Abstract


The Independent Scientific Advisory Board (ISAB) was established by the Northwest Power Planning Council (the Council) and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to provide independent scientific advice and recommendations on issues related to regional fish and wildlife recovery programs under the Northwest Power Act and the Endangered Species Act. The ISAB is designed to foster a scientific approach to fish and wildlife recovery and to ensure the use of sound scientific methods in the planning and implementation of research related to these projects. NMFS and the Council request that the ISAB review specific projects, proposal, and plans. Thus, the extent and subject matter of ISAB reviews varies from year to year. Each review has a schedule for completion. In completing a review, the ISAB follows specific procedures and adopts recommendations by consensus. ISAB reports are submitted to and distributed by NMFS and the Council.
