Funding Recommendations

Science Panel Recommendation: Fund

Science Panel Comments: The science panel recognized that although highly specialized, past work has made a substantial contribution to the scientific literature on herring in PWS and elsewhere. The reviews were positive and the only negative comment concerned the high costs of sample analysis. Now there is increasing recognition that herring research in PWS must be coordinated with other projects, both conceptually and operationally. The Science panel would have preferred to see how this proposal would be connected and integrated with other concurrent work.

Science Coordinator Recommendation: Fund

Science Coordinator Comments: I concur with the science panel recommendation.

Public Advisory Committee (PAC) Recommendation: Fund Reduced

Public Advisory Committee (PAC) Comments: Possible reduction as a function of the recommended overall 10% decrease of the 10100132 PWS Herring Survey - see 10100132.
