Mark Reports

Mark Summary Report
The Mark Recovery Lab at the ADF&G Mark, Tag and Age (MTA) Laboratory examines salmon otoliths from commercial fisheries, test fisheries, and escapement surveys for artificially-induced marks and provides mark characteristic reports and to provide otolith mark recovery data to biologists for fishery management.

Voucher Summary Report
The Voucher Summary Report provides characteristics and descriptions of marks applied to salmon otoliths by hatcheries. We examine a representative sample of otoliths from each group of marked salmon as eggs, fry, or smolt. The Mark Characteristic Report includes images of the otolith mark, measurements of the mark, and images representative of lots that do not show the proposed mark (variants).

These reports can be customized by using parameters to filter the results. You can also output the results of your report to a file and then download it. Definitions and examples of terms used on this web site and in these reports can be found in our online glossary.
