Interesting Image of the solar stellar core neutrino flux:

This image is of the solar stellar core, only a fraction of the total radial size of Sol.

If the solar stellar core neutrino flux is less than that predicted by the standard stellar core nuclear fusion model, does this indicate that Sol is burning fusion at a slower rate than the neutrino flux predicted by the standard model?

Your link was from 1998. The second paragraph labeled "News" mentions the neutrino oscillations that have now been confirmed with the discovery of the Tau Neutrino in the summer of (I think) 2001. There is not much considered a "solar neutrino problem" anymore, with three neutrino flavors now known. The "models" now match the observations. See:
