Tracing the impacts of Canadian commercial fisheries on Northern BC chum stocks using DNA and otolith analysis

This project seeks to provide stock composition information about chum caught in Canadian Area 3 commercial seine and gillnet fisheries in order to assess the impacts of those fisheries on weaker wild stocks of concern. The proposed methodology continues analysis of otolith for hatchery thermal marks and adds DNA analysis of unmarked chum and continued expansion of the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) database, providing further information for management
