I was reading through the public comments to the recent BOF meeting in Kodiak (see pc 10 pg 12)
This fellow seems very perturbed and concerned with the number of jack sockeye being counted into Frazer Lake on Kodiak Is.
It appears that jacks are being used to pad the books on escapement into this system.
Escapement returns with as high as 70% jacks have been recorded and it appears 2 consequtive cycles are now averaging around 40% jacks in the escapements.
This seems like pretty poor management as a normal policy. I have read where other healthy systems have jack escapements of 2-5%.
Any theories on what would cause this or why they would be counted as viable escapement
