Adult Sockeye and Pink Salmon Tagging Experiments for Separating Stocks 1982-1985

Adult sockeye and pink salmon were captured, tagged, and released in coastal fisheries of southern Southeast Alaska and northern British Columbia between 1982 and 1985. Sockeye salmon were tagged in 1982 and 1983; pink salmon were tagged in 1982, 1984, and 1985. The tagging experiments were part of a cooperative effort by the United States and Canada to assess contributions of stocks of each country to fisheries of the region and to learn about the coastal migrations of these salmon.
