Summary, etc.:
This report documents the study design, field methods, analytic techniques, and results of the 1995 Fraser River pink salmon escapement estimation study. The study focuses on the lower 135 kilometres of the river, below Ruby Creek. It includes the 1995 escapement estimates, and the results of comparison of live and carcass recoveries, stress evaluations, and bias tests to assess mark-recapture assumptions. The analytic techniques for estimating escapement relied on the Stratified Population Analysis System software for common mark-recapture estimators.
