The Okanagan Nation Alliance (ONA) Fisheries Research Team is conducting a 2017 fish behaviour study of Okanagan River Sockeye.

HOW TO ENTER/HELP

If you catch a Sockeye salmon in the Okanagan River and Osoyoos Lake, please check to see if the fish has a tag attached under the large top fin or inside the cavity of the fish as follows:

Spaghetti Tag: Plastic hollow tube, under dorsal fin (Yellow and white colour)

Pit Tag: about the size of a grain of rice, inserted into the abdomen of the fish.

WHAT TO DO WITH THE TAG

If you decide to keep the fish as part of your catch:

Remove the tag and place in an envelope
Use a pencil to write catch information on a label that you can then attach with the tag – include the following information: Species, Fisher name, Contact number, the Date & Place of Capture and; if possible, the Sex, and Length of the salmon.
Submit the tag as soon as possible to any Okanagan Nation Alliance Fisheries Catch Monitor or DROP OFF at:
