The Return of Sockeye Salmon Marked at Babine and Lakelse Lakes

The marking of young migrant salmon by removing certain fins is a well-established practice. The recapture of such individuals may provide information on times and routes of migration; the degree to which fish return to their "home" streams or "wander" elsewhere; the percentage of young fish which survive to become adults; the percentages which are taken by the fishery or which escape to the spawning grounds.
