A sub-sample of 50 salmon juveniles will be placed into a bucket containing a solution of Tricaine methanesulfonate (MS-222) and anaesthetized. Individuals are measured and identified to species or race. DFG GCID FSFO requests authorization for an estimated annual take of 10 adult Sacramento River winter-run Chinook salmon, 10 adult Central Valley springrun Chinook salmon, and 10 adult Central Valley steelhead (with 1 percent incidental mortality) resulting from capture and release of the fish.
