There is no way they would used the Willapa Bay study .......


Scroll to page 59 to read the discussion about finding NO difference in post-release survival of fall chinook from tangle vs gill nets.

It goes on to point out the SHARP contrast with results found in the CR on spring chinook.

Using the CR results for tangle nets and applying them to GH is TOTALLY inappropriate.
