Evaluation of the Sampling of the Skeena River 1968 Sockeye Catch

This report outlines the evaluation of the Skeena River 1968 Sockeye Catch. The sampling of sockeye and chum salmon was reduced in 1968 after a statistical evaluation was made to determine the effort required to provide reliable estimates of the age, size and sex composition of the catches. These data have been used here to make a comparison between the estimates of the FRB samples with the estimate by the Department, based on a much larger sample.
