Identify, evaluate and develop a suite of marking tags that can satisfy the needs of the YKFP. This task is critical to success of the YKFP.
Project start year 1989 End year 1997
Start of operation and/or maintenance
Project development phase Implementation.

The success of the YKFP relies on the ability to discriminate individual fish to one of eighteen treatment replicators while maintaining the ability to release capitve fish at any point in their life history. This project will determine the best marking method to use in the YKFP.

Will enable the YKFP to meet project objectives for benign recovery of data from individual fish.
Specific measureable objectives
Recover marked fish reared in salt water net pens and examine for marks.
Marks are durable.
Underlying assumptions or critical constraints
Survey only, no experimental applications proposed.
Brief schedule of activities
Recover fish from salt water net pens in September and October 1996 and 1997. Examine for presence of marks placed on fish as juveniles.
Develop benignly recoverable marks to achieve experimental, ecological, and genetic objective of the YKFP.
A critical uncertainty identified in the YKFP Project Status Report is that a marking method is available that is benignly recoverable.
Summary of expected outcome
Description and selection of the marking/tagging method to be used in the YKFP.
Dependencies/opportunities for cooperation
None, all biological developmental work has been completed using non-critical fish stocks.
