Abstract

Two experiments were conducted to compare tagging mortality rates when Pacific mackerel are tagged using a traditional method and a modified method. Tagged and control fish in equal numbers were held in tanks on board the R/V ALASKA and observed for mortality. The experiments revealed mortality rates of 24% when the tag passes between the pterygiophores or neural spines and 1.5% when the tag is placed in the lateral musculature. Mortality from handling the fish for tagging was 4%, tank trauma was 2%, and the initial tag loss was 2.5%. (20pp.)
