Tagged salmon in Cook Inlet

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has tagged red salmon migrating to upper Cook Inlet. Each red salmon has an internal tag in the head and a small, 1-inch long orange dart tag attached to the back immediately below the dorsal fin.

If a tagged red salmon is caught in the commercial fishery, Fish and Game asks that it be delivered along with the rest of the catch. Tagged red salmon can be more easily retained at processing plants.

If a tagged red salmon is found, please retain the head and dart tag and call Mark Wilette at 262-9368.
