How can NOAA add value? The obvious answer is NOAA can contribute a sound scientific basis for the recovery plan, which is lacking from the Fish Accords. The most sound way for recovery planning is a clear-eyed analysis of all the options, including dam removal or by-pass.
Even if a "majority" of regional sovereigns is rallying around the Columbia Basin Fish Accords, it does not follow that the plan will lead to the recovery of salmon and steelhead. Ms. Lubchenco should be basing her decisions on science, not a popularity vote from political interests.
