Nerka- "Relative to the 5-7 days and Willphish4food. The closure was on 27 and 30 July not 23 July. In a regular season fish moving between 23 and 27 July would have moved with or without a closure. So calling the start date 23 July is bogus.
The fish saved would be from the 27th and 30th closure. What is interesting on August 1 the drift fleet caught a total of 11,000 sockeye from all stocks in the inlet. Just how many fish from Fish Creek could be in that level of harvest - less than 100 for sure.
Finally, the escapements into Fish Creek was 50,000 total on 30 July and was 27,000 on 27 July. So if you use 5 days which is twice the average travel time the fish would have arrived on August 1st so the fish there by 30 July could not have been from the 27 July closure. Willphish4food, look at the data and try to understand it - and forget the one God bull on this forum. That is out of line - saying you are posting bogus data is the truth - you started this with a bogus posts about sockeye traveling to Fish Creek in a few hours."
