A two-stage marking experiment was designed to estimate natural mortality rates of pink salmon during their early (coastal) and later (oceanic) periods of sea life. Difficulty was encountered because of disproportionate representation of various stocks in the marked populations, the stocks being subject to dissimilar rates of exploitation. Several assumptions were made for which the error introduced could not be fully evaluated. Under these assumptions, the results indicate (approximate values… CONTINUE READING
