Executive Director Recommendation: Fund
Executive Director Comments: Fund closeout of this project. The FY 98 Invitation to Submit Restoration Proposals indicated that the Trustee Council would consider additional monitoring in FY 98 if questions raised by the Chief Scientist concerning interspecific competition and interaction with other species were addressed. This proposal does not address those questions.
