Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund
Chief Scientist Comments: This proposal will complete the fourth year of field monitoring and define the recovery of pink salmon embryo mortality. The proposed investigations are on track with previous recommendations made by peer reviewers. Closeout in FY 99 is appropriate, and must include integration of these investigations with laboratory studies of mechanisms for the observed effect.

Executive Director Recommendation: Fund
Executive Director Comments: This project represents the major monitoring effort for the ongoing injury to and recovery of pink salmon. Funding in FY 98 will allow two even-year and two odd-year life cycles to be followed. Only closeout funds (final data analysis and report writing) are anticipated in FY 99.
