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

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: General Restoration

Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon

Abstract: This project is developing otolith marking as a technology for identification of hatchery pink salmon returning to Prince William Sound. The otoliths of all pink salmon reared in Prince William Sound hatcheries will be thermally marked in the fall of 1998. A blind test will be conducted to determine the ability of otolith readers to successfully determine the origin of randomly selected otoliths. During the 1998 commercial fishery, approximately 100 otoliths will be processed from each fishery opening to estimate stock composition. A Bayesian approach will be used in the estimation of postseason contribution estimates, with a dynamic sample size allocation scheme being used to maximize sampling efficiency.
