At the June 22, 2011 request of the Northwest Power and Conservation Council, the ISRP reviewed a revised sub-proposal and response document for the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission Accord project, Tribal Pacific Lamprey Restoration Plan Implementation (2008-524-00). This project has undergone several ISRP reviews. This review concerns only a sub-proposal for Objective 3, Task 3B, Subtask (i) to plan, prioritize, and implement mainstem juvenile lamprey habitat inventories. The ISRP reviewed an initial sub-proposal for this task and requested a response on May 17, 2011 (ISRP 2011-12).
The ISRP finds that the proposal meets scientific review criteria (qualified). The qualification is that the study plan, while generally complete, requires additional details with regard to some aspects of the study. The deficiencies identified below should be addressed during finalization and adjustment of the study design as the project is further developed and implemented. Review of this project by the ISRP at the completion of the year of pilot work is warranted.
