Chief Scientist Recommendation: (Not Available)

Chief Scientist Comments: I have supported fox removal as a highly effective but low cost restoration technique. One issue is that Seguam Island is far from the spill zone. Target species were injured by the spill, but would have to be justified on replacement/equivalent resource basis. Every opportunity to take concrete measures of program effectiveness should be used.

Trustee Council Decision: Fund

Trustee Council Comments: Fund close-out of prior work (95041). Do not fund new work at Seguam Island because the benefit to spill-affected populations is not established.
