Sponsor-Reported Relevant RPAs

Sponsor listed no RPAs for this project proposal

Relevant RPAs based upon NMFS & BPA Review

NMFS and BPA did not associate any reasonable and prudent alternatives with this project proposal


Biological Outcomes of this project: 1) Increased survival of natural and hatchery juvenile migrants, 2) estimates of lamprey production, 3) documentation of fall chinook natural production, and 4) identification of environmental factors influencing juvenile salmonid migration success.
Biological Data: 1) Number of PIT-tag detections at Umatilla and mainstem detection sites, 2) trap efficiency estimates to determine migrant abundance of tagged fish, 3) number of lamprey captured and trap efficiency estimates, 4) trap counts of natural subyearling fall chinook salmon, and 5) environmental variables and relationship to fish migration.

Reviews and Recommendations

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

CBFWA Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
Ongoing Funding: yes; New Funding: no
Date:
Jul 14, 2000
2001
$297,489
Comment:
The FY 2000 project did not include PIT purchase. With the inclusion of those costs in FY 2001, there is only about $16,000 increase realized due to cost of living increases. There is no change in scope of work.

NWPPC Funding Recommendation Recommendation:
