Objective 2

Objective 2. Decrease mortality of wild fish in fisheries by determining feasibility of catch and release sport fisheries and by exploring options for reducing mortality in commercial fisheries.

Task 2.1 Estimate sport angling mortality of caught and released fish.

Task 2.2 Estimate mortality that would occur from fin-clipping hatchery fish so that anglers could tell hatchery from wild.

Task 2.3 Evaluate other mass marking techniques so anglers can identify hatchery adults in sport fisheries.

Task 2.4 Explore options with Salmon Program Managers and Columbia River Management Program for reducing mortality of wild fish in commercial fisheries.
