Abstract or Summary
  • The disposal of radioactive waste products is a serious problem facing scientists and the public. One solution proposed is to dump these waste products at sea, with the area of northern Oregon and southern Washington in 100 to 1,000 fathoms as one area of consideration. However, one of the problems to be resolved is the subsequent distribution of fishes present in the area where these wastes would be dumped, Do these fish move inshore to become available to fisheries and hence utilized by man? The most practical method presently available to determine the migration of these deep water fishes is by tagging. Recoveries of tagged fish by the inshore fisheries would provide information on the offshore-inshore movements of these fish. This is the final report on a cooperative study by the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), Bureau of Commercial Fisheries (BCF), and Oregon Fish Commission (OFC) to determine the off shore-inshore movements of Dover sole (Microstomus pacificus) and sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria). Funds for this study were made available from the AEC on a yearly contractual basis. This report will present the methods, materials, results, and conclusions of the work accomplished since initiation of the study in June 1961.
