Hatchery Coho Returns

Abstract -- The excel spreadsheet data file associated with this report summarizes returns of coho adults and jacks to hatcheries and associated fish traps in the Oregon Coast Coho ESU, for the period 1990 through 2003. In some cases coho are collected at locations remote from the hatchery. The number of "off-site" collected fish brought to a hatchery for use in the hatcheries broodstock is reported separately from fish that swam into the hatchery volitionally. Such "off-site" locations are generally well removed from the hatchery location. These fish should be assumed to be wild fish although we don't always know for sure........Purpose: The data presented is the best available information, and is appropriate to represent returns of coho to hatcheries and associated fish traps in the Oregon Coast Coho ESU. This data is a summary of the information available in the HMIS system. Un-summarized data, including specific date, size and location of release, is available by contacting ODFW hatchery staff located at the Salem headquarters.
