200731300 - Expanded Acquisition and Display of Fish (Initially Anadromous Salmonids) Harvest Data in the StreamNet Database
Sponsor: Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission (PSMFC)
Budgets: FY07: $148,844 | FY08: $156,287 | FY09: $164,201

Final Council recommendation (Nov 2006)
Funding category: Expense
Recommended budgets: FY07: $0 | FY08: $0 | FY09: $0
ISRP final recommendation: Not fundable
This minimalist proposal does not clearly identify the incremental benefits to fish and wildlife that would derive from the expanded acquisition and display of data. The idea may be good but the proposal is confusing to read and leaves out essential information about the data and its application. The proposal lacks a logical progression in the presentation. This proposal doesn't tell a coherent story. The proposal is too cursory and general to justify the proposed actions. It is not clear that the content of existing databases has been considered. The CWT data system already collects much of these data. What is the relationship of this project to the CWT data system? PSMFC is the home of PACFIN and RACFIN data, but there is not evidence of strong coordination with this proposal. Not enough information is provided to evaluate the adequacy of facilities or to determine if the proportion of personnel time to be devoted to the project is appropriate.
