Reviews and Recommendations

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

ISRP Preliminary Review , ISRP 99-2 Recommendation:
Fund (high priority).
Date:
Jun 15, 1999
[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
Recommendation: Fund (high priority). OK for multi-year funding; review on an annual basis for progress toward meeting objectives.

Comments: This was a very well documented proposal. This program is integrally linked to a large number of other projects; together with 8805303, it serves as the backbone of the evaluation of the HRPP. Its continuation seems imperative for a successful program. Objectives were clearly explained, even though this is a large and complex project. The proposal had several weaknesses. The abstract doesn't suggest any further work is necessary. They should have provided a more complete summary of findings to date, even though these may be preliminary. In most cases, the methods do not describe criteria by which hypotheses will be accepted or rejected. Statistical methods are not discussed in any hypotheses. Sample sizes are not mentioned. It is not clear (sub-obj. 3) how the authors will determine to what extent any changes would be due to hatchery supplementation. How will sub-objective 7 be done? Monitoring and evaluation is great, but criteria for evaluating success or failure is critical. Despite those weaknesses, the project's feasibility and value of continuation seems very high.

Criteria all: Met? yes - Provide better basis for removing hatchery fish at Parkdale.

CBFWA: Subregional Team Comments Recommendation:

[There are no budget numbers associated with this review.]
Comment:
#1 objective overlap with 8805303 but activities distinct. Implements Obj 1-4. #3 in kind, no $ assigned. #7 lost prior BPA investment. Need to maintain data stream for re-evaluate project in 2002.Becomes more important as populations listed.
