ISRP final recommendation: Fundable


The importance of the Lower Granite Dam adult trap is described in good detail. This project is clearly linked to several other high priority projects, and the proposal provides adequate justification for continued funding support. Although the justification focuses upon NOAA Fisheries requirements, there is an obvious benefit to Council's Fish and Wildlife Program by providing data need for implementation of several subbasin plans.

Comment: USACE relies on this project for data. The USACE also pays for maintenance costs of the trap. Information from this project is critical for evaluating hydro and hatchery survival as well as collecting bloodstock for BPA funded hatcheries.
