Title: Otolith Thermal Mass Marking of Hatchery Reared Pink Salmon in PWS

Project Year and Number: 1996: 96188

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1999: 99188-CLO, 1998: 98188, 1997: 97188, 1995: 95320-C, 1994: 94320-C

Principal Investigator (PI): Tim Joyce, City of Cordova

Assisting Personnel: David Evans

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: General Restoration

Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon

Abstract: This project will develop otolith mass marking as an in-season stock separation tool for pink salmon in PWS. In-season stock composition data is used by fishery managers to protect damaged wild pink salmon stocks from overharvest in mixed-stock fisheries. Coded-wire tags are presently used for this purpose in the Sound. Transitioning to otolith marking will reduce costs and increase precision. (This project was formerly numbered 95320C).
