Final Round ISRP Date: None
Final Round ISRP Rating: Does Not Meet Scientific Review Criteria
Final Round ISRP Comment:
The response is minimal. The proposal is inadequate and not justified. The ISRP maintains its preliminary recommendation of "Not fundable."

ISRP comments (June 2006): The presence of walleye and smallmouth bass can hardly be anything but detrimental to co-occurring native salmonids. The fact that this conclusion is publicly voiced by IDFG in an article on the situation in the Coeur d'Alene newspaper (CDA Press, 12 April 2006), but not in the proposal, leads the ISRP to question the thoroughness of this proposal. It is clear that three years of study are not needed to assess the situation. Immediate management action to suppress walleye and bass is appropriate if not already too late.
