On coho, what are PSF's based on? A long time ago, WDFW had a forecast (low) based on smolt numbers and QIN had a higher one based on escapement in brood year. Biologically, a PSF based on smolts should be closer to the truth as you have incubation and rearing thrown in before the ocean.

I suspect, though, that the argument will be around the statistical "robustness" and we will somehow magically end up with a forecast that allows some fishing. It will be large enough to allow a QIN fishery and a reasonably matching rec fishery in the ocean.
