Final Round ISRP Comment:
Detailed and more than satisfactory responses were provided, and the ISRP recommends funding this project. The proposal will complete assessment of the population status of coho in the Washington side of the lower Columbia River and has clear benefits to the Fish and Wildlife Program's needs to determine recovery.

Explanation of the proponent's role concerning coho in Intensively Monitored Watersheds projects was excellent. Responses to queries about SARs, marine survival estimates and habitat limitations were also well done. Data were presented and interpreted in response to queries about past results.

The response to the ISRP's concerns about databases was encouraging. The coho data will be entered into Streamnet and at least two WDFW databases. However, the ISRP's question was also about a comprehensive database for the Columbia River Basin. The ISRP had recommended that the idea of a comprehensive database be vigorously pursued so that status and trends can be evaluated for the entire Lower Columbia. This question/suggestion was not really dealt with, unless one accepts Streamnet as the answer. The response gives the impression that the WDFW databases will be emphasized, which is logical considering the proposing Agency. The key item is whether or not the WDFW databases will be available to the public.

The overview of related projects and proposals would have been useful from the outset to aid ISRP review of this and associated proposals for juvenile monitoring projects to estimate ocean survival (BPA 200727400, 200734300, and 200715000). Perhaps a better strategy by WDFW would have been to submit a comprehensive proposal that addressed all of their proposed adult and juvenile coho salmon abundance monitoring and ocean survival estimation work. In any event, this adult monitoring project will begin to fill large gaps in information on adult escapement and other population parameters for the lower Columbia River coho salmon ESU.
