Final Round ISRP Date: None
Final Round ISRP Rating: Does Not Meet Scientific Review Criteria
Final Round ISRP Comment:
In the previous funding cycle the ISRP's recommendation was "Fundable as a planning and prioritization exercise," but on further consideration the ISRP considers the current proposal as only marginally justified, at best, as a planning exercise. Given the current context of the Snake River Complex, the benefits to fish and wildlife from this project are not justified. The pathogen component of the study is out of phase (it should follow an assessment of the feasibility of reintroduction) and not justified in a compelling fashion. The remaining objective is to "Develop a comprehensive plan to detail the feasibility of reintroducing salmon in the Malheur Subbasin. This plan will consist of an adult salmon survivability and spawning success, egg to fry survivability rates, fry to smolt/juvenile survivability, and juvenile migration behavior and survivability rates. This study will also address the effects salmon reintroduction will have on native resident fish." Most of the issues involved with this proposal are outside the realm of science, and what science there is has not been convincingly presented.
