The study will keep this trap up to December and harvest ships from returning hatchery Cohos, count and release wild fish, then walk the river and survey dead fish expired after spawning.
Rob on the site says that some of the fish he processed are in the 70 centimeter range. Coho are also known as Silver Salmon and don’t have the black lips of Chinook.

The trap will be stored at the authorities warehouse after the study
