Northern and Transboundary sockeye matched scale-tissue sampling

We propose to continue collecting weekly otolith, tissue, and scale samples of sockeye from the Southeast Alaska commercial harvest in the District 101, 106, 108, and 111 gillnet fisheries, the Districts 101-104 purse seine fisheries, and the District 182 set gillnet fishery. Matched scale-tissue-otolith samples will be collected allowing stock identification analysis using age composition, thermal mark presence, as well as new more stock-discrete DNA techniques.
