We analyzed tag-recovery data to estimate instantaneous fishing (F) and natural mortality (M) rates of four lake whitefish stocks in lakes Michigan and Huron during 2004–2007. We tagged and released 22,452 adult lake whitefish of which 8.7% were subsequently recovered. Annual tag-reporting rates ranged from 17.8% to 56.2%. Tag retention was high for the first 5–6 months after tagging, but tag loss increased substantially thereafter. Nine tag-recovery models were evaluated with respect to… CONTINUE READING
