Girnock and Baddoch: Adult Returns to the Traps

doi: 
10.7489/1588-1

The Girnock and Baddoch catchments are long-term monitoring sites where the population dynamics of spring salmon have been assessed since 1966 and 1988 respectively. These long-term monitoring sites consist of a pair of fixed traps designed to catch emigrating juvenile salmon and returning adults. Trap protocols were similar, although not identical, over the monitoring period.

Data Dictionary

The numbers and sex of returning adult Atlantic salmon were recorded at the Girnock and Baddoch traps since 1966 and 1988 respectively. This dataset represents the outcome of a detailed validation and correction procedure carried out between 2013 and 2014, where the fate of individual fish was identified from historic paper records collected at the time of sampling and recorded in the MSS FishObs database. This dataset summarises the numbers of unique fish that returned to the traps in each year, but NOT the numbers of fish that contributed to production either through natural spawning or stocking.
