Summary, etc.:
Presents a radio telemetry study of spawning sockeye salmon that had three objectives: to determine whether handling stress introduced bias in the annual mark-recapture study conducted on the Chilko Lake/River population; to describe the fish movement patterns between the tagging site (Chilko River near Lingfield Creek) and the spawning grounds; and to estimate the proportion of the stock which spawned in the south end of Chilko Lake. Telemetry methods, equipment tests, fish tracking, transmitter recovery, and study results are presented. Three distinct salmon movement patterns are identified.
