Funding Recommendations

Scientific & Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) Recommendation: Fund

Scientific & Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) Comments: This proposal is recommend for funding. The proposal would provide an important measure to the modeling program, an estimate of the estuarine survival of pink salmon. As a forecast tool, the measure would also have fishery management applications. In addition, it would advance the use of an important tagging technology in Alaska by creating a base of knowledgeable individuals who could transfer the technology to other areas.
