ISAB Administrative Oversight Panel, Fish Passage Center Oversight Board, and Fish Passage Center,
The Council’s 2009 amendments to the Columbia River Basin Fish and Wildlife Program call for a regular system of independent and timely science reviews of the Fish Passage Center’s analytical products. This regular system of reviews includes evaluation of technical memos or analyses that meet criteria established in the October 12, 2010, Review Guidelines for the Independent Scientific Advisory Board Review of Fish Passage Center Products, and that would be of interest to the region. These criteria include whether new or novel analyses are introduced; new conditions or data bring old analyses into question; and/or consensus cannot be reached in the region on the science involved in the product. Three Fish Passage Center (FPC) technical memos on the topics of latent mortality and effects on in-river survival were identified as meeting the criteria for review. The three memos address latent mortality of in-river migrants due to route of dam passage.
