Abstract: Archive tags with temperature and light-geolocation sensors will be monitored for post-smolt coho salmon in Cook Inlet. Light/location relationships specific to the Gulf of Alaska developed under Project 00478 will be applied in this study of movement and migration paths for coho salmon during maturation in ocean environments in Cook Inlet. Salmon for this study will be reared in captivity (at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game hatchery at Fort Richardson) to 1+ year of age (150-250mm) and released in Cook Inlet as part of the department's Ship Creek sport-fishing hatchery release. FY 01 will include pilot studies of tag retention, behavior, and growth for coho in captivity. A spring release experiment in the first year will be contingent on the success of the retention study and incorporate timed releases of smolts, 1+, and surveys for early jack recoveries at the Ship Creek weir. Archive tagged fish will be used to document coho salmon use of marine habitats, migration routes, contribution to the sport fishery, and hatchery/wild interactions for salmon in Cook Inlet.
