Audience:  Government and Public

Briefly, there were two classes of sampling events for this study. In 2007 and earlier, cod traps were used to catch fish and haul them to the surface for tagging. These took place in the spring and fall in the North and South Basins (inconsistent between Basins). In 2009 and later, with the exception of two fall cod trap sampling sessions in 2013 and 2014, fish were captured using angling on spawning grounds near Cotton Creek in the North Basin. The angling only occurred in the February spawn season. Note that no sampling took place in 2008. Figure 1 shows the timing of the surveys.
