Central BC Chinook Mark Incidence and Catch Estimation Project 2014

This project provides estimates for Chinook catch associated with independent (non-lodge based) anglers. The majority of Chinook catch for this fishery is lodge-based and captured by a longstanding logbook program, but there is also an independent (non-lodge based) component to this fishery with unreported catch. This project provides the data required to estimate the independent catch component for this fishery (2012 estimate of 2046). This project also provides the mark-rate information requiredto produce reliable stock-specific fishery impacts.
