Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon

Abstract: This project closes out the Trustee Council's support for coded wire tagging of hatchery-released pink salmon fry in Prince William Sound. Originally scheduled to close out in FY 99, the second year of overlap (FY 98) between the coded wire tag and otolith thermal methods of marking salmon has been canceled due to financial problems suffered by the private non-profit hatcheries in Prince William Sound. Included in the closeout budget are funds to carry out two new objectives that will contribute to a comprehensive final report: (1) determine the incidence of stray fish and the rate of adipose-clipped fish without tags in the brood stocks of Prince William Sound hatcheries and (2) determine the origin of adipose-clipped fish without tags recovered from Northern district catches.
