Narrows: Henry noted that he posted the RPA and conservation recommendation from the draft Narrows biological opinion to the listserver. The conservation recommendation portion is non-binding and recommends collecting more information on the flow requirements for Colorado pikerninnow in the Price River. It was put in a conservation recommendation to avoid having Section 7 drive biological priorities. >Chris Karas will send the project description and the RPA to the Management Committee for comment. >Committee members will get comments back to Reclamation within two weeks of the date when it is sent out. Barry said that this underscores the need to complete the research on the importance of tributaries as well as the recovery goals so that we're not recommending flows that are not essential to recovery,
