Executive Director Recommendation: Fund

Executive Director Comments: Fund closeout of this project (final report and manuscript preparation). This project is developing a new technique for estimating spawner abundance that could potentially advance salmon management. The remote video technique was tested on Delight Creek (sockeye escapement in a small stream) in FY 99 and is being tested on Port Dick Creek (pink and chum escapement in a tidally influenced stream) in FY 00.
