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.
Estimate sport angling mortality of
caught and released fish.
Estimate mortality that would occur
from fin-clipping hatchery fish so that anglers could tell hatchery from wild.
Evaluate other mass marking
techniques so anglers can identify hatchery adults in sport fisheries.
Explore options with Salmon Program
Managers and Columbia River Management Program for reducing mortality of wild
fish in commercial fisheries.
