From an ADFG News Release:
The Division of Sport Fish will be using a beach seine to net and tag king salmon in the lower two miles of the Ninilchik River, one day each week, from May 15 to July 28, 2007. The goal of the tagging project is to help fishery managers estimate king salmon run timing, as well as the percentage of hatchery king salmon available for harvest.
Both wild and hatchery king salmon will be tagged. Biologists will place a numbered dark green plastic tube on the fish's back, near the left side of the top (dorsal) fin. All king salmon tagged will then be released.
If you catch a tagged king salmon, please make a note of the tag number and contact the Division of Sport Fish with the tag number, and the location and date of harvest. Please do not remove the tag from kings you release.
