Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund
Chief Scientist Comments: This project has demonstrated a cost-effective technology to make escapement data available at a reduced cost, potentially greatly enhancing in-season management of salmon. A small amount of funding is needed for FY 01 to produce a publication from this innovative project.

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.
