Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references.
Summary, etc.: Pacific herring have been tagged and recovered in British Columbia since 1936, but there has not yet been a definitive description or record of all methods and results. This paper presents a detailed description and review of all herring tag releases and recoveries, based on assembly and review of all previous publications plus new, previously unpublished data from more recent anchor tagging work in the late 1980s and 1990s. All pertinent data were entered into a new herring tagging database that combined results from both the earliest tagging programs that employed metallic tags inserted into the body cavity and from more recent programs that used plastic anchor tags that were visually detected. The original objectives and techniques of each herring tag release program are noted when appropriate. Database structure and fields are described, discrepancies in the data are examined, and data entry decisions are discussed.
