                                       INTRODUCTION
Sport Fish Division records most of its field data on machine-readable paper forms. This was
begun in 1986, to reduce the cost, errors, and time lag produced by manual data entry, and to
create standard data formats for analysis simplification. This manual provides required
information for successful use of the forms.
The project leader decides which of the nine types of mark-sense forms is best suited for the
project, and using this manual, prepares explicit instructions about each field used for the field
crews. Forms are mailed to Research and Technical Services (RTS) in batches, together with a
“Batch ID sheet” (Figure 1) specifying owner of the forms and location of the study. RTS gives
each batch a unique name, operates the optical scanner to produce an ASCII data file from the
forms, emails the data file to the biologist, mails the forms and summary reports to the biologist,
and keeps a copy of the data file and Batch ID sheet. If the forms have abundant errors or
omissions, the biologist may correct them and repeat the process. When the data are finalized,
the biologist gives RTS a copy of the edited data file for archival storage, along with a completed
Mark-sense Study Code Form detailing codes used in the study.

              1. REQUIREMENTS FOR USE OF ALL FORMS
1.1    GENERAL MARK-SENSE INFORMATION
To prevent data loss, project leaders should:
1. read this introduction and the chapter about the form you plan to use
2. make condensed instructions for the field crews
3. mail RTS those instructions as explained in Section 1.4 below.
There are 9 forms available for use:
 3 types of angler interview forms
 1 count form
 5 types of biological forms.
Chances are you will use only a few of the fields on any of these forms. It’s important to use at
least the location, date, and page number fields to keep track of your data. Keep the limitations
of the form reading machine (Opscanner) in mind:
 Use pencil or blue or black ink. If you use ink, check that it does not run through the form. I
  recommend a #2 pencil, or a thick point ballpoint pen with indelible ink. Because some inks
  may bleed through, I encourage you to test anything other than a #2 pencil before your field
  season starts by mailing RTS a test form to be scanned.
 Make heavy black marks to fill the cell. For a cell to be read, the number printed in the cell
  must have a mark over it.
 Erase cleanly any marks you want to change (you can also use white correction fluid).

 Make no marks in the left or bottom margin (See Figure 2). You may make notes, if desired,
  in the spaces between the fields, and in the top and right margins.
 Do not use pre-1998 forms. They are not scannable. The changes in form appearance and use
  are detailed in Table 1. In 1998, the original machine that scanned the forms was replaced
  with a newer model. Different forms were required for the new machine, and a complete
  rewrite of the software was required to run under Windows and to conform to Year 2000
  requirements. Form layouts did not change, however, so be sure you are using the new forms.
 Do not punch holes in the form
 Do not use staples
 Do not send photocopies. The opscanner can only read the printed forms.
 Note that any unreadable forms will be returned for your correction.
The left and bottom margins of the form should be treated with care. Any wrinkles or stray
marks in this area may prevent the form from being read by the opscanner. Any one of the marks
shown in Figure 2 would make the opscan machine reject the form.
The large number printed in black on the left edge of the form is the litho-code. It is a serial
number that appears on every form. The litho-codes are unique within each type of form, and are
used to identify individual mark-sense forms. The litho-code is put in the data file to help track
down errors.
Use the location, date, and page number fields at a minimum. These make the data identifiable.
A Mark-sense Study Code Form, or a similar clear description, should be completed for each
study. The purpose is to document how the fields were used in your study. Send this
information to RTS to store in the data archive. A Mark-sense Study Code Form is shown at the
end of each chapter about a specific form.
1.2    FIELD CONTENTS
In most fields you may make only one mark. If you mark more than one cell you will get a
pound sign ("#") in your data file, because the scanner didn't know what you wanted.
Some numeric fields are additive or binary. In these types of fields you may mark more than
one cell. The response will be interpreted as the sum of these cells. Thus, to denote the value of
10 mark cells 2 and 8. It is very important that you and all your field crew know which fields are
"additive", and which are not. If this manual does not specify a field is additive, then it is not.
The mark-sense data file formats are shown in Appendix A.
1.3    PROCEDURES FOR GETTING A DATA FILE FROM YOUR FORMS
These procedures changed slightly in 1998. Changes are summarized in Table 1.
Bundle completed forms by:
1. form type (interviews, short interview, marine interview, counts, biological, alternate AWL,
   tagging length, revised tagging, or hoop net)
2. location/sublocation.

Fill out a Batch ID Sheet (Figure 1). Forms cannot be accepted for scanning without one. Mail
the Batch ID sheet and all the forms in the batch together. Do not use staples or any fastener that
might mutilate the forms. Always keep the Batch ID sheet with the forms. This assures you (and
RTS) of knowing the history of batch, and tells you the name of the computer file for the data on
those forms.
The copy header fields option on the Batch ID sheet was created to save you work. If you choose
this option, the header information from the first form of the batch (the one on top of the stack
given to RTS) will be copied to the rest of the forms in the batch (in the data file only - the mark-



                                                       8
sense forms will not be touched). When a new value of a header field in the batch is
encountered, it will override the previous value and this new value will be copied until a new
value is encountered. If you choose the copy header fields option it is very important that you
have the sheets in the right order. Also note that the entire Date field is considered one field - if
the date changes fill out the entire year, month, and day. Two printed reports are available: a
listing of all the data, and a frequency of values in each field. It’s a good idea to request at least a
listing report, because the listing clearly shows any pound signs indicating errors on the mark-
sense forms. Mail the forms with the completed Batch ID sheet to:
Mark-sense Processing, Sport Fish Research and Technical Services, Alaska Dept. of Fish and
Game, 333 Raspberry Road, Anchorage, AK 99518-1599
It’s a good idea to send in a small batch near the beginning of the season to see if your forms are
readable.
When RTS receives the forms we will assign a name to the batch. The name will conform to the
convention shown in Table 2. For example, the fourth batch of Tagging Length Forms we
receive from Area A, Site 239, Sublocation 3, for processing in 1998 would be assigned the batch
name A-023903L041998.
The forms will be scanned, a data file produced; and optionally a listing and/or frequency report
will be produced, as requested on your Batch ID sheet. The data file will not be sorted before it
is sent to you. Your data are returned to you in the order of the sheets you provide to us. The
sheets are returned in reverse order. The Batch ID sheet, forms, and reports will be sent back to
the name and address on the Batch ID sheet. The data file will be emailed in a Winzip file. The
data file is comma delimited, fixed length, ASCII format. The formats of the data files are
shown in Appendix A. RTS will keep a copy of the data file and Batch ID sheet. RTS will
usually be able to process a batch within three days after receiving it. If you require faster
processing than this, call RTS.
Each action done with the batch should be recorded on the Batch ID sheet. If you discover gross
errors on the forms and want them rescanned, log when you sent them back to RTS on the Batch
ID sheet. You may want to record the date and time when you do a major edit of the data.
1.4    DATA ARCHIVES
When you have finalized your analysis on the data, send back to RTS the Batch ID sheet and the
edited data file from which your analysis was done. Write onto the Batch ID sheet that the data
are "FINAL CLEAN DATA". A Mark-sense Study Code Form and/or file description should be
sent to RTS before or at this time. It is important that a copy of your final clean data is stored in
the archive. This insures you against accidental loss of your hard-earned data. The Mark-sense
Study Code Form will enable correct interpretation of your data in the future. The data file need
not be in mark-sense format. We will accept any commonly used file format. RTS does not
store used mark-sense forms, and will dispose of any mark-sense forms sent in with final clean
data.

                         2. ANGLER INTERVIEW FORM

2.1    INTRODUCTION
The Angler Interview form (Figure 3) is designed for studies with only one or two species of fish
involved and lots of demographic questions. Eleven interviews can be recorded per sheet.
If you turn in a form with no interviews on it, one record with blank interview fields will be
generated from that sheet.
2.2    HEADER FIELDS
Location
The location field is in the upper right-hand corner on the front of each form. The first row of the
location block will be used to designate the survey area. These survey areas correspond to the
areas used by the Statewide Harvest Survey. Number codes for these areas are given in
Appendix B.
Generally, the third digit of the first row will be left blank. However, the Kenai Peninsula Area
has been subdivided and uses three digits to denote the survey area.
If you are not sure what survey area your study is in, either contact RTS or consult the latest
Statewide Harvest Survey Federal Aid report.
The second row of the location block will be used for the site. This is a unique code assigned to
your survey location (Appendix C). Consult RTS for the correct site code for your survey
location if it is not listed in Appendix C. If the site code for your area is one of the few that are
four digits long, record only the hundreds, tens, and ones.
The third row of the location block may be used as an optional field.
Sublocation
Sublocation codes are used to separate portions of a fishery. You will need to use this if you
want to generate separate estimates for subsections of a site.
The Project Leader must decide in advance how (and if) the sublocation field will be used. It is
helpful to coordinate sublocation codes between studies, if more than one study will be done in a
given Statewide Harvest survey area/site. If you don't know what the official site code is for the
area you are studying, write or call RTS to find out. If it is a new site it may take a few days to
assign a code.
Sublocation codes are numbers from 00 to 99. Within that framework, sublocation codes can be
assigned by the project staff involved in the creel survey. Once sublocation codes are assigned
they should be used consistently throughout the study. These assigned values should be recorded
on the Mark-sense Study Code Form (Figure 4).
Sublocation codes are entered in the first row of the sublocation block, in the first two digits.
The third digit of sublocation will be left blank.
Date
The date entered in this field is the date that the data are collected. Data for only one date should
be put on a single mark-sense sheet.



                                                 11
All six digits of this field must be completed, or an error code will result. The only exception is
for the year 2000 and beyond, which is indicated by leaving the year tens digit blank. If the date
is in the current year, the standard Sport Fishing week and day type are automatically calculated
and stored in the data file. Sport Fishing weeks start on a Saturday. In 1998, week 1 is two days
long (Thursday and Friday, January 1 and 2). The day type is set to 1 if the date is a weekend, 2
if it is a weekday. Holidays are not treated specially. If you want a weekday to be considered a
weekend day, you must change your data file to reflect this.
Sample Period          A-Z
Note that, because DATE and SAMPLE PERIOD are header fields that appear only once on each
data sheet, data from different dates and periods cannot be recorded on the same sheet.
Page Number (labeled Collector)               1-999
You should instruct your field crews whether you want to start the page numbers at 1 each day,
or start at 1 the first day of the study and go up from there throughout the season.
2.3    CONTINUE
Continue
This field will be marked only when additional space is required to record all the information
from a single interview. When using continuation lines, you will usually not record information
in any fields except SPECIES, KEPT, TARGET, RELEASED, and NUMBER OF FISH, but you
can use variable fields if continued lines are used for breaking one interview into many
sublocations or gear types.
There is no continuation field for the first interview on the front and the back of the form. If you
want to mark continued information at the beginning of a form, leave the first row of blocks
entirely blank and use the second row of blocks. If a row is left entirely blank, the opscanner will
ignore it and it will not be in your data file.
2.4    ANGLER TYPE INFORMATION
Trip Type      C (complete) or I (incomplete)
This variable refers to whether the angler is done fishing for the day.
Shore/Boat/Ice    S or B or I
Guided/Unguided G or U
Other-boxes 1 through 5
These are variable fields, provided to allow up to five extra parameters to be recorded in your
study. These fields usually relate to angler characteristics, best suited to yes/no answers. If you
have a question with many possible answers, then you should use one of the three binary variable
fields in the VARIABLE block on the right side of the form instead. Boxes 1-4 store a blank in
the data file if they are left unmarked, and a 1 if they are marked. The 5th cell is treated
differently, and may be convenient for use as "Interviewed Before Same Day". If anything is
marked on the interview line, and Box 5 is left unmarked, this field will be ‘N’ in the data file,
‘Y’ if marked. This means Other 5 will always be Y or N for each interview.
2.5    TIME INFORMATION
The two time fields are used in combination to record the amount of time fished up to the time of
the interview.



                                                 12
Hours Fished           00-99
This is the number of hours fished. The top row is the tens digit, and the bottom row is the ones
digit.
Minutes Fished         0, 5 ... 55
This is the number of minutes (paired with hours above) fished. In your data file, this
information will be converted to decimal fraction of an hour automatically. You may want to
instruct your field crews to consistently round to the nearest 15 or 30 minutes.
2.6    SPECIES AND NUMBER INFORMATION
These fields are used to record the composition of the catch. There are two sets of species and
number blocks for each interview line. If you need to use more blocks to record the data from
one interview, use the CONTINUE? block discussed earlier. This complicates data reduction,
because a single interview may be on more than one record. For surveys with more than two
species of interest, you should consider the Interview Short Form.
Sample         Y
This field is marked when biological data are recorded for a fish.
There is, however, no automatic way to link the angler interview information with AWL form
information. If you need to match up angler interview information with biological information,
you can record interview page and line numbers in optional fields on the AWL form.
Zero Catch marked or blank
This field will be marked when there is no catch to be recorded for an angler. This is a cross-
check to assure that an interview with no species information recorded is meant to be that way.
Species        one marked
This is the species of fish caught by the angler. If the angler catches more than one species, you
must go on to the next species block. See Table 3 for a list of species codes.
Note that SK denotes immature king salmon (Small Kings).
The last row in the species block contains five variable fields. These fields can be used to record
species not included in the rows above.
Target         Y
Mark this cell if the species marked is this angler's target species.
Kept/Released          K or R
These fields indicate whether the fish were kept or released. You can only mark one of these
fields. If an angler both keeps and releases fish, both catches cannot be recorded in the same set
of species blocks.
On each interview line there are two sets of species information blocks. If you are collecting data
for only one species (king salmon for instance), you may want to establish a convention that the
first set of blocks is for kept fish and the second set for released fish.
Number of fish         1-999
This field denotes the number of fish of the defined species that were harvested or released. The
top row is the hundreds digit, the middle row is the tens digit, and the bottom row is the ones



                                                  13
digit. Be sure to use the rows correctly. If you don't, 10 fish could look like 100 fish. Trailing
zeroes are not added automatically.
2.7    ANGLER CHARACTERISTICS
Only one of each of the first four choices (Male/Female, Youth/Adult, Resident/Non-resident,
Local/Non-local) may be marked. In the Tourist/Military field, both can be marked.
The six variable fields at the end of this block can be used as either/or fields like the first four
fields of this block. An angler would, for instance, fit either cell 1 or cell 4. You could also use
these fields as yes/no fields in the same way that the OTHER fields on the left of the form were
used. An angler would fit characteristic 1 or would not. We recommend that you use these as
either/or fields, as that will make checking the data easier. The character stored for marked
numbered cells is a 1.
Gear (S/M) S or M
Mark S if the angler used a single gear type; mark M if the angler used more than one gear type.
Gear (1248) 1-15
This is a binary (additive) field. Use any combination of these four numbers to note how many
pieces of gear were in use.
Gear Type Alpha mark only one
This field is used to record the gear type used by the angler. The cell you mark is converted to a
number (SP=1, BT=2, ..., BA=8) and stored in the first digit of the gear type field in the data file.
For a list of gear types, see Table 3.
Gear Type Numeric              mark only one
This field may be used to record additional gear type information. You can use these numbers to
designate combinations of multiple gear types (such as 1=spin+bait) if you are not concerned
about recording effort separately for each gear type. This field can also be used to record unique
gear types that are not included in the alpha list. The number you mark will be stored in the
second digit of the gear type field in the data file.
Boat mark only one type
This space is used to record the type of boat used by the angler. Only one boat type can be
recorded. For a list of boat types, see Table 3.
Boat-first binary field        1-15
The first set of boat types is followed by a binary (additive) field that can be used to record boat
types not listed in the codes.
Boat-second binary field 1-15
This field is unlabeled but has traditionally been used to designate horsepower. Horsepower
codes are listed in the code Table 3. You may use this field for whatever you want, but record its
value on the Mark-sense Study Code Form.
Variable       1-15
These are binary (additive) fields that may be used to record parameters unique to your study.
There is space to record three separate numbers with values up to 15.

2.8    LITHO-CODE
Litho-code DO NOT PUT ANY MARKS IN THIS AREA
The left side of the form has a special field called a litho-code. This is the machine-readable
form of the number printed on the front of the form. Do not mark any of these litho-code cells.
When your data sheets have been read, you will receive a listing of your data in which each line
will be associated with this litho-code.

                   3. ANGLER INTERVIEW SHORT FORM
3.1    INTRODUCTION
The Angler Interview Short Form (Figure 5) is designed for creel surveys that have few questions
per interview. Up to five species can be recorded per interview line. It has space to write down
all the data in addition to marking the cells.
Below the header fields on the front of the form is room for 17 interviews. Twenty-one interview
lines are on the back of the form, for a total of 38 per form.
Note the five places to record a species code. The species code you record there is applied to the
column beneath it FOR THE ENTIRE FORM. There is no "continuation" field, so you must
record all the information for a given interview on a single line. If there is a chance that you will
encounter more species than will fit on this form, you should decide ahead of time which you
plan to record and which not. If your study requires the routine recording of more than five
species-kept/released combinations, do not use this form. You will have to use continued lines
on the regular Angler Interview form, or use the Marine form.
If you turn in a form with no interviews on it, one record with blank interview fields will be
generated from that sheet.
3.2    HEADER FIELDS
Survey Area One letter marked
The survey area field is in the upper right-hand corner on the front of each form.
The Statewide Harvest survey area should be marked. Letter codes for these areas are given in
Appendix B.
If you are not sure what survey area your study is in, either contact RTS or consult the latest
Statewide Harvest Survey Federal Aid report.
Site   001-999
This is a unique Statewide Harvest code assigned to your survey location (Appendix C). Consult
RTS for the correct site code for your survey location if it is not listed in Appendix C. If the site
code for your area is one of the few that are four digits long, record only the hundreds, tens, and
ones.
Sublocation 00-99
Sublocation codes are used to separate portions of a fishery. You will need to use this if you
want to generate separate estimates for subsections of a site.
The Project Leader must decide in advance how (and if) the sublocation field will be used. It is
helpful to coordinate sublocation codes between studies, if more than one study will be done in a
given Statewide Harvest survey area/site. If you don't know what the official site code is for the
area you are studying, write or call RTS to find out. If it is a new site it may take a few days to
assign a code.
Sublocation codes shall be numbers from 00 to 99. Within that framework, sublocation codes
can be assigned by the project staff involved in the creel survey. Once sublocation codes are




                                                 19
assigned they should be used consistently throughout the study. These assigned values should be
recorded on the Mark-sense Study Code Form (Figure 6).
Page 00-99
You should instruct your field crews whether you want to start the page numbers at 1 each day,
or start at 1 the first day of the study and go up from there throughout the season.
Date
The date entered in this field is the date that the data are collected. Data for only one date should
be put on a single mark-sense sheet.
All six digits of this field must be completed, or an error code will result. The only exception is
for the year 2000 and beyond, which is indicated by leaving the year tens digit blank. If the date
is in the current year, the standard Sport Fishing week and day type are automatically calculated
and stored in the data file. Sport Fishing weeks start on a Saturday. In 1998, week 1 is two days
long (Thursday and Friday, January 1 and 2). The day type is set to 1 if the date is a weekend, 2
if it is a weekday. Holidays are not treated specially. If you want a weekday to be considered a
weekend day, you must change your data file to reflect this.
Period         00-99
Note that, since DATE and SAMPLE PERIOD are header fields that appear only once on each
data sheet, data from different dates and periods cannot appear on the same sheet.
Variable Fields 1-4 0-31
These fields may be used to record additional information as needed. These are binary (additive)
fields. Mark the cells needed to add up to the number you want.
3.3    ANGLER TYPE INFORMATION
Delete Interview       marked or blank
This field should be marked only when the person taking data in the field wants this interview to
be ignored during the analysis.
A record (line of data) will be generated from this interview. It will be the responsibility of the
person doing the analysis to delete records with the "Delete Interview" field marked.
Complete/Incomplete            C or I
This variable refers to whether the angler is done fishing for the day.
Shore/Boat S or B
Guided/Unguided G or U
3.4    TIME INFORMATION
The two time fields are used in combination to record the amount of time fished up to the time of
the interview.
Hours Fished           00-25
This is the number of hours fished up to the time of the interview. This is an additive field, so
you should mark the cells required to add up to the correct number of hours.




                                                 20
Fraction of Hours blank, 1/4, 1/2, both 1/4 and 1/2
This is the fraction of an hour (paired with hours above) fished up to the time of the interview.
This is an additive field, so if you need to record 45 minutes you should mark both the 1/4 and
1/2.
3.5    SPECIES AND NUMBER INFORMATION
These fields are used to record the composition of the catch. Note that you may record 5 species
per form. The species code you record is applied to the column beneath it FOR THE ENTIRE
FORM. There is no "continuation" field, so you must record all the information for a given
interview on a single line.
Species 1 is designed to be used for the primary species being studied. It has room reserved
under it on each interview for the number kept and the number released. Species 2-5 require you
to mark K or R to denote whether you are recording kept or released fish. The maximum number
of fish you can record for species 1-4 is 15. Species 5 is designed to be used to record larger
numbers, as it has room for a 2-digit number, up to 99.
Species 1, Species 2, ... Species 5 Sport Fish species code
This field contains the Sport Fish species code for the species in the column below. For a list of
species codes, see Appendix D. We recommend you decide ahead of time which species will be
included in your study and assign columns to each of those species. You could mark these
species codes on each form ahead of time if you want. It simplifies analysis if you do not switch
columns between pages.
Number of Fish – Species 1-4           0-15
This is a binary (additive) field. Mark the cells needed to add up to the number you want.
Number of Fish – Species 5             0-99
Use the Species 5 column for a species likely to have harvests greater than 15. Note that there
are 2 rows of numbers for each interview for Species 5. The top row is for the 10's place and the
bottom row is for the 1's place. Each row is an additive field, however, each row must not add
up to more than 9. Trailing zeros are not automatically added.
Target         T
Mark this field to indicate the target species of the angler.
Kept/Released          K or R
This field does not exist for Species 1. For Species 1, record the number of fish kept in the
"KEPT" column, and the number of fish released in the "RELEASED" column. For species 2-5,
mark K or R to denote Kept or Released.
Option 1 and Option 2          0-15
The use of these fields is be determined by the needs of the study. Each is an additive field, so
you may mark more than one cell. The value in your data file will be the sum of the cells
marked.
Option 3, Option 4, Option 5           1-15
Use these fields if needed to record things unique to your study. These are binary (additive)
fields. Mark the cells needed to add up to the number you want.



                                                  21
If you have some yes/no values to mark, you may find these fields useful. For example, in
Option 3 mark "1" for yes and "4" for no.
3.6    LITHO-CODE
Litho-code DO NOT PUT ANY MARKS IN THIS AREA
The left side of the form has a special field called a litho-code. This is the machine-readable
form of the number printed on the front of the form. Do not mark any of these litho-code cells.
When your data sheets have been read, you will receive a listing of your data in which each line
will be associated with this litho-code.

                  4. MARINE ANGLER INTERVIEW FORM
4.1 INTRODUCTION
The Marine form (Figure 7) was designed for creel surveys that have many species to record
from many different areas. For ease of use, the form has been designed with space to write in all
the numbers.
Below the header fields on the front is room for four interviews. Five interview lines are on the
back of the form, for a total of nine per form.
If you turn in a form with no interviews on it, one record with blank interview fields will be
generated from that sheet.
4.2    HEADER FIELDS
Survey Area One letter marked
The survey area field is in the upper right-hand corner on the front of each form.
The Statewide Harvest survey area should be marked. Letter codes for these areas are given in
Appendix B.
If you are not sure what survey area your study is in, either contact RTS or consult the latest
Statewide Harvest Survey Federal Aid report.
Site   001-999
This is a unique Statewide Harvest code assigned to your survey location (Appendix C). Consult
RTS for the correct site code for your survey location if it is not listed Appendix C. If the site
code for your area is one of the few that are four digits long, record only the hundreds, tens, and
ones.
Sublocation 00-99
Sublocation codes are used to separate portions of a fishery. You will need to use this if you
want to generate separate estimates for subsections of a site.
The Project Leader must decide in advance how (and if) the sublocation field will be used. It is

Sublocation codes shall be numbers from 00 to 99. Within that framework, sublocation codes
may be assigned by the project staff involved in the creel survey. Once sublocation codes are
assigned they should be used consistently throughout the study. These assigned values should be
recorded on the Mark-sense Study Code Form shown Figure 8.
Page 00-99
You should instruct your field crews whether you want to start the page numbers at 1 each day,
or start at 1 the first day of the study and go up from there throughout the season.
Date
The date entered in this field is the date that the data are collected. Data for only one date should
be put on a single mark-sense sheet.


                                                 25
All six digits of this field must be completed, or an error code will result. The only exception is
for the year 2000 and beyond, which is indicated by leaving the year tens digit blank. If the date
is in the current year, the standard Sport Fishing week and day type are automatically calculated
and stored in the data file. Sport Fishing weeks start on a Saturday. In 1998, week 1 is two days

if it is a weekday. Holidays are not treated specially. If you want a weekday to be considered a
weekend day, you must change your data file to reflect this.
Harbor         00-99
Enter the predetermined code for the harbor at which you are sampling.
Period Start, Period End 0001 to 2359
Record the military time. Do not record midnight; it is too open to misinterpretation. Add a
minute to make it 0001. Enter the time that sampling began, and ended.
Counted, Interviewed          0 to 199
These fields may be used to record the total number of people or boats counted and/or
interviewed.
Header Variables 1,2 and 3             0-127
These three binary (additive) fields on the upper right corner of the form may be used to record
other unique information as determined by the project leader.
4.3    ANGLER TYPE INFORMATION
Delete Interview       marked or blank
This field should be marked ONLY when the person taking data in the field wants this interview
to be ignored during the analysis.
A record (line of data) will be generated from this interview. It will be the responsibility of the
person doing the analysis to delete all records with the "Delete Interview" field marked.
Interview Number 00-99
This field may be used to uniquely identify each fishing party. All interviews from one party
could be assigned the same number, and then the number could be incremented for the next
party. Interview number is two additive fields. Do not record a value greater than 9 in either
digit or you will get an error code in your data file.
Continue       Y or N
This field must be used when the information from one interview will not fit on one interview
line. For example, if more than 8 species and kept/released combinations were encountered in
one interview, you would mark as many as you could on the first interview line, then mark "Y"
on the next line under "CONTINUE" and continue marking species. Record only species
information on continued lines.
Complete/Incomplete           C or I
This variable refers to whether the angler is done fishing for the day
Class 1-6
Mark the class of the angler or party. Only one cell may be marked. See Table 4 for class codes.




                                                 26
Target         0 or 7 or A or B or C or D
Mark the target of the angler or party. See Table 4 for target codes.
Area 00-99
Mark a 2-digit number. These are additive fields, so you may mark more than one cell to form
each digit. Do not mark more than a value of 9 for either digit, or you will get an error sign in
your data file.
Variable Fields 1-5 0-15
You may use these as five separate fields, or one big five-digit field. These are each additive
fields. You may mark all the cells to get a value up to 15 for each column or variable.
Rods Fishing                   00-99
Mark a 2-digit decimal number to indicate the number of rods fishing. These are additive fields,
so you may mark more than one cell to form each digit. Do not mark more than a value of 9 for
either digit, or you will get an error sign in your data file.
4.4    TIME INFORMATION
The two time fields are used in combination to record the amount of time fished up to the time of
the interview.
Hours Fished           00-99
Mark a 2-digit decimal number to indicate the number of hours fished. These are additive fields,
so you may mark more than one cell to form each digit. Do not mark more than a value of 9 for
either digit, or you will get an error sign in your data file.
Fraction of Hours 1/4 or 1/2 or 3/4
This is the fraction of an hour (paired with hours above) fished up to the time of the interview.
4.5    SPECIES AND NUMBER INFORMATION
These fields are used to record the composition of the catch. There are eight sets of species and
number blocks for each interview line. If you need to use more blocks to record the data from
one interview, use the CONTINUE field discussed earlier.
Number of Fish (labeled TENS, ONES)                   00-99
The number of fish is to be recorded as a 2-digit decimal number. Each digit is an additive field.
This means that you may mark more than one number, whatever adds up to the number you want
(but not greater than 9 for either digit). If you mark a value greater than 9 in either digit you will
get an error code in your data file.
If someone caught 5 rockfish and released 2, you would have to use two species/number of fish
blocks, one for the 3 rockfish kept, and another for the 2 rockfish released.
Species        ONE SPECIES CELL, ONE NUMBER CELL
Mark the species for which you are recording the number of fish. In this field there are eight
species codes, plus another eight numbered cells. See Table 4 for an explanation of the species
abbreviations. The number codes can be used to designate fish not included in the eight
alphabetic species codes or they can be used as variables to indicate something about the species
you have marked. For instance, you could mark the HA cell for halibut, and mark the 1 cell to
indicate under 450 lbs, or mark the 2 cell to indicate over 450 lbs.



                                                 27
Kept/Released         K or R
Sampled/Not                 S or N
This field is intended to be used to record whether or not the fish was seen by the interviewer,
and checked for an adipose clip. If the field is to be used this way for your study, mark S if the
fish was checked for an adipose clip, or mark N if the fish was not checked.
4.6    LITHO-CODE
Litho-code DO NOT PUT ANY MARKS IN THIS AREA
The left side of the form has a special field called a litho-code. This is the machine-readable
form of the number printed on the front of the form. Do not mark any of these litho-code cells.
When your data sheets have been read, you will receive a listing of your data in which each line
will be associated with this litho-code.

                             5. ANGLER COUNT FORM
5.1    INTRODUCTION
The angler count form (Figure 9) is used to record counts in creel surveys.
Each side of the Angler Count Form is for a single date. Each horizontal row of blocks is for a
single count (start/stop) time. Each count block in a row is for a single angler type (e.g.,
guided/unguided). There are four count blocks per count time.
If you can't put all this information on one row because you have more than four angler types,
simply continue onto the next row. Fill out all fields (time, count, and period) on the second row.
Record data first on the front of the form, then the back to avoid confusion. The front clearly
days "FRONT" on it, and the back, "BACK". Line numbers are automatically generated for each
form. If you start on the back, the first line number on the form would be "4".
If you turn in a form with no counts on it, one record with blank count fields will be generated
from that sheet.
5.2    HEADER FIELDS
Location
The location field is in the upper right-hand corner on the front of each form. The first row of the
location block will be used to designate the general survey area. These survey areas correspond
to the areas used by the Statewide Harvest Survey. Number codes for these areas are given in
Appendix B.
Generally, the third digit of the first row will be left blank. However, the Kenai Peninsula Area
has been subdivided and uses three digits to denote the survey area.
If you are not sure what survey area your study is in, either contact RTS or consult the latest
Statewide Harvest Survey Federal Aid report.
The second row of the location block will be used for the specific site code within the area. This
is a unique code assigned to your survey location (Appendix C). Consult RTS for the correct site
code for your survey location if it is not listed in Appendix C. If the site code for your area is one
of the few that are four digits long, record only the hundreds, tens, and ones.
The third row of the location block may be used as an optional field.
Sublocation
Sublocation codes are used to separate portions of a fishery. You will need to use this if you
want to generate separate estimates for subsections of a site.
The Project Leader must decide in advance how (and if) the sublocation field will be used. It is
helpful to coordinate sublocation codes between studies, if more than one study will be done in a
given Statewide Harvest survey area/site. If you don't know what the official site code is for the
area you are studying, write or call RTS to find out. If it is a new site it may take a few days to
assign a code.
Sublocation codes are numbers from 00 to 99. Within that framework, sublocation codes can be
assigned by the project staff involved in the creel survey. Once sublocation codes are assigned




                                                 32
they should be used consistently throughout the study. These assigned values should be recorded
on the Mark-sense Study Code Form (Figure 10).
Sublocation codes are entered in the first row of the sublocation block, in the first two digits.
The third digit of sublocation will be left blank. The second row of the sublocation block may be
used as an optional field.
Date
The date entered in this field is the date that the data are collected. Data for only one date should
be put on a single mark-sense sheet.
All six digits of this field must be completed, or an error code will result. The only exception is
for the year 2000 and beyond, which is indicated by leaving the year tens digit blank. If the date
is in the current year, the standard Sport Fishing week and day type are automatically calculated
and stored in the data file. Sport Fishing weeks start on a Saturday. In 1998, week 1 is two days
long (Thursday and Friday, January 1 and 2). The day type is set to 1 if the date is a weekend, 2
if it is a weekday. Holidays are not treated specially. If you want a weekday to be considered a
weekend day, you must change your data file to reflect this.
Page Number            0-999
You should instruct your field crews whether you want to start the page numbers at 1 each day,
or start at 1 the first day of the study and go up from there throughout the season.
Continued from Other Side             Mark to copy header from other side
On the back of the Count forms, there is a header field labeled "Continued from other side".
Mark this only if the header information is IDENTICAL to that on the FRONT of the form. If
you mark any other fields in the header on the back of the form and also mark "Continued from
other side" the marked header fields will be ignored. You do not need to mark the continue field
if you have specified on your Batch ID sheet that you want header information copied.
Start Time 0005-2355
This is the time that the count starts. It should be recorded in military time (0001 to 2355). The
top row of hour is for the tens digit, the bottom row for the ones digit. The left part of minutes is
for the tens digit, the right part for the ones digit. Minutes must be rounded to the nearest 5
minutes. Do not record midnight, it is too confusing.
Finish Time 0005-2355
This is the time that the count ends. It must be recorded in military time. Mark the fields in the
same manner as for start time.
5.3    COUNT INFORMATION
Number of Counts 000-999
This is the number of anglers, boats, or whatever you are counting, counted.
The top row is for hundreds, the middle row is for tens, and the bottom row for ones. Ten
anglers could easily look like 100 anglers if the rows are used incorrectly. Trailing zeros are not
automatically added.




                                                 33
Type of Counts-Angler/Boat          A or B
Only one of these options can be marked. If you are counting individual anglers, mark the
ANGLER cell. If you are counting boats, mark the BOAT cell.
Type of Counts-Unguided/Guided              U or G
Other1 through Other9
These are variable fields that can be used to record additional angler characteristics unique to
your study. You may mark more than one, because they are nine separate fields.
Sample Period         A-Z
5.4    LITHO-CODE
Litho-code DO NOT PUT ANY MARKS IN THIS AREA
The left side of the form has a special field called a litho-code. This is the machine-readable
form of the number printed on the front of the form. Do not mark any of these litho-code cells.
When your data sheets have been read you will receive a listing of your data in which each line
will be associated with this litho-code.

            6. BIOLOGICAL (AGE-WEIGHT-LENGTH) FORM
6.1    INTRODUCTION
The Biological Form (Figure 11) is used to record biological information about sampled fish.
Each sheet is intended for the recording of fish caught on one date. Each line of the form is
intended for the measurement of a single fish.
The back of the form is a continuation of each line from the front of the form. Line 1 on the front
is the same fish as line 1 on the back.
If you turn in a form with no fish information on it, one record with blank biological fields will
be generated from that sheet.
6.2    HEADER FIELDS – FRONT OF FORM
Location
The location field is in the upper right-hand corner on the front of each form. The first row of the
location block will be used to designate the general survey area. These survey areas correspond
to the areas used by the Statewide Harvest Survey. Number codes for these areas are given in
Appendix B.
Survey Area One letter marked
The survey area field is in the upper right-hand corner on the front of each form.
The Statewide Harvest survey area should be marked. Letter codes for these areas are given in
Appendix B.
If you are not sure what survey area your study is in, either contact RTS or consult the latest
Statewide Harvest Survey Federal Aid report.
Site   001-999
This is a unique Statewide Harvest code assigned to your survey location (Appendix C). Consult
RTS for the correct site code for your survey location if it is not listed in Appendix C. If the site
code for your area is one of the few that are four digits long, record only the hundreds, tens, and
ones.
The third row of the location block may be used as an optional field.
Sublocation
Sublocation codes are used to separate portions of a fishery. You will need to use this if you
want to generate separate estimates for subsections of a site.
The Project Leader must decide in advance how (and if) the sublocation field will be used. It is
helpful to coordinate sublocation codes between studies, if more than one study will be done in a
given Statewide Harvest survey area/site. If you don't know what the official site code is for the
area you are studying, write or call RTS to find out. If it is a new site it may take a few days to
assign a code.
Sublocation codes shall be numbers from 00 to 99. Within that framework, sublocation codes
can be assigned by the project staff involved in the creel survey. Once sublocation codes are
assigned they should be used consistently throughout the study. These assigned values should be
recorded on the Mark-sense Study Code Form (Figure 12).


                                                 37
Sublocation codes are entered in the first row of the sublocation block. The second row of the
sublocation block may be used as an optional field.
Date
The date entered in this field is the date that the data are collected. Data for only one date should
be put on a single mark-sense sheet.
All six digits of this field must be completed, or an error code will result. The only exception is
for the year 2000 and beyond, which is indicated by leaving the year tens digit blank. If the date
is in the current year, the standard Sport Fishing week and day type are automatically calculated
and stored in the data file. Sport Fishing weeks start on a Saturday. In 1998, week 1 is two days
long (Thursday and Friday, January 1 and 2). The day type is set to 1 if the date is a weekend, 2
if it is a weekday. Holidays are not treated specially. If you want a weekday to be considered a
weekend day, you must change your data file to reflect this.
Project Number         0-999999
This is intended to be your project budget code, but you may use it as needed. The first 3 digits
are entered in the top row, and the last 3 digits in the second row.
Page Number            001-999
You should instruct your field crews whether you want to start the page numbers at 1 each day,
or start at 1 the first day of the study and go up from there throughout the season.
Species Code           Sport Fish codes
This is the species of fish recorded on this sheet. Information on only one species of fish can be
recorded on a form. Enter one digit of the Sport Fish species code in each field of this block.
See Appendix D for the Sport Fish species codes.
Type of Measurement-Length & Weight                   one type for each
Only one type of measurement can be marked for length and weight. See Table 6 for the possible
types of measurements.
Type of Measurement-Fishery one type
This is the type of fishery (test, sport, commercial, or subsistence) in which the fish were caught.
Only one type can be marked.
Gear Code Sport Fish gear codes
This is the type of gear used to catch the fish. Valid codes are shown in Appendix E. The top
row is for the tens digit, the bottom row is for the ones digit.
Mesh Size - Inches and Eighth's 0-4 in, 0-7 eighth's
This is the mesh size of the net.
6.3    HEADER FIELDS- BACK OF FORM
Variable Fields
These are variable fields that can be used to record information unique to your study.
Age Structure Type             one type
This is the structure used to age the fish (such as scale or otolith). Only one type can be entered.
There are 5 variable cells in this field which can be used to record an age structure that is unique
to your study. See Table 6 for the possible age structure types.


                                                 38
Type of Tag Sport Fish tag code
See Table 6 for the Sport Fish tag codes.
6.4     BIOLOGICAL DATA – FRONT OF FORM
Sex M or F
Maturity Index           Sport Fish codes
This is a binary (additive) field. Enter the combination of numbers that adds up to the
appropriate maturity index code. See Table 6 for the appropriate Sport Fish maturity index
codes.
Length          length in mm (up to 1999)
Trailing zeroes must be entered, but leading zeroes need not be. Note that there is a single "1" to
left of the hundreds for the thousandths place. You can, therefore, record a fish length up to 1999
mm.
Weight          weight in units specified (up to 9999)
This is the weight in the units specified under TYPE OF MEASUREMENT. You must enter
trailing zeroes, but need not enter leading zeroes.
6.5     BIOLOGICAL DATA - BACK OF FORM
Age     Age of fish
Use the European method to record age of salmon. For all other species record the total age in
years.
Example of the European method: A salmon has lived 3 years in fresh water and 2 in salt and is 6
years of age. The European age would be 3.2. You would enter a 3 in the tens digit and a 2 in
the ones digit. For salmon that spent 0 years in fresh water, enter a 0 in the tens digit.
Age Error       R or I
Mark R for a regenerated scale, I for illegible, or leave blank.
Fate K
Mark this cell if the fish was killed.
Recp. marked
Mark this cell if this is a recaptured fish.
Fin Clip        one or more marked
Mark each fin that has been clipped. This is an additive field, so you may mark more than one
cell. See Table 6 for the meaning of the fin clip codes.
Tag Color       one or more marked
This form has space for marking black, white, the primary colors, and clear. If your tag is one of
these colors, mark only one. If you have a tag that is not one these colors, mark the two colors
that would combine to make your color. For example, if you have a green tag, mark yellow and
blue. See Table 6 for the appropriate combinations. If you have a multi-color tag, mark three
colors. This way we can differentiate between the blend colors and the multi-color tags.




                                                 39
Tag Number            000000-999999
The three upper digits of tag number are binary (additive) fields. They have the choices 0,1,2,4
and 7. Mark these to sum to the total you want. For example, if your tag number is 8000 you
would mark the 7 and the 1 under the 1,000's, and zero under the 100's, 10's and 1's. (Normally
a binary field would have the choices 1,2,4,and 8. Due to a printing error we have 1,2,4,and 7.
Because the forms are printed that way, that is the way we will use them. Do not use the last cell
as an 8!).
You must enter trailing zeroes, but you don't need to enter leading zeroes.
6.6    LITHO-CODE
Litho-code DO NOT PUT ANY MARKS IN THIS AREA
The left side of the form has a special field called a litho-code. This is the machine-readable
form of the number printed on the front of the form. Do not mark any of these litho-code cells.
When your data sheets have been read you will receive a listing of your data in which each line
will be associated with this litho-code.
6.7    SCALE NUMBERS
Scale Numbers
There is no space designated on this form for scale numbers. Scale numbers have been used in
some studies to match scale envelopes with fish entries. If you need to associate scales taken in
the field with data recorded on these forms, record the litho-code number and the line or entry
number from your AWL form on to your scale envelope.
Suppose the litho-code number is 68345 and the entry number is 6, then the scale number will be
68345-06.
If you use gum cards instead of envelopes, a slightly different approach should be used. A
typical gum card will hold 30 or 40 scales (10 rows of 4 scales).
Method 1: Since the biological mark-sense form has rows for 30 fish, then 1 scale from each fish
could be put on the gum card in positions 1 through 30. There would be a one gum card to one
mark-sense form relationship. Simply use the litho-code to match gum cards and mark-sense
forms.
Method 2: In method 2, up to 4 scales are collected from each fish. Each row on a gum card
would be one fish or line on the mark-sense form. This method would have 3 gum cards per
mark-sense form. Under this method, you must record both the litho code and line number group
(1-10,11-20, or 21-30) on the gum card.
When the ages have been determined, you will mark the age information on the same sheets you
have marked the length and weight information. RTS will then feed these forms through the
optical scanner. If length-weight data reports are needed before the scales have been read, a two
step process can be used.

                            7. ALTERNATE AWL FORM
7.1    INTRODUCTION
The Alternate AWL form (Figure 13) was designed with room to write down all the numbers on
the form. All the information about each fish is on one side of the form. Twenty fish may be
recorded on a form.
This form is used to record biological information about sampled fish. Each sheet is intended for
the recording of fish caught on one date. Each line of the form is intended for the measurement
of a single fish.
The back of the form is a continuation of the front of the form. Fish numbers 1-9 may be
recorded on the front of the form, and fish 10-20 on the back.
If you turn in a form with no fish information on it, one record with blank biological fields will
be generated from that sheet.
7.2    HEADER FIELDS
Page 0-99
You should instruct your field crews whether you want to start the page numbers at 1 each day,
or start at 1 the first day of the study and go up from there throughout the season.
Date
The date entered in this field is the date that the data are collected. Data for only one date may be
put on a single mark-sense sheet.
Year, month and day are binary (additive) fields. This means that for each digit you mark cells to
add up to the value you wanted. For example, to mark a year of 99, you would mark the 9 for the
tens place, and the 8 and 1 for the ones place.
All six digits of this field must be completed, or an error code will result. The only exception is
for the year 2000 and beyond, which is indicated by leaving the year tens digit blank. If the date
is in the current year, the standard Sport Fishing week and day type are automatically calculated
and stored in the data file. Sport Fishing weeks start on a Saturday. In 1998, week 1 is two days
long (Thursday and Friday, January 1 and 2). The day type is set to 1 if the date is a weekend, 2
if it is a weekday. Holidays are not treated specially. If you want a weekday to be considered a
weekend day, you must change your data file to reflect this.
Survey Area One letter marked
The Statewide Harvest survey area should be marked. Letter codes for these areas are given in
Appendix B.
If you are not sure what survey area your study is in, either contact RTS or consult the latest
Statewide Harvest Survey Federal Aid report.
Site   001-999
This is a unique Statewide Harvest code assigned to your survey location (Appendix C). Consult
RTS for the correct site code for your survey location if it is not listed Appendix C. If the site
code for your area is one of the few that are four digits long, record only the hundreds, tens, and
ones.



                                                 45
Each digit of Site is a binary (additive) field. Do not record a value greater than 9 for any one
digit.
Sublocation 00-99
Sublocation codes are used to separate portions of a fishery. You will need to use this if you
want to generate separate estimates for subsections of a site.
The Project Leader must decide in advance how (and if) the sublocation field will be used. It is
helpful to coordinate sublocation codes between studies, if more than one study will be done in a
given Statewide Harvest survey area/site. If you don't know what the official site code is for the
area you are studying, write or call RTS to find out. If it is a new site it may take a few days to
assign a code.
Sublocation codes shall be numbers from 00 to 99. Within that framework, sublocation codes
can be assigned by the project staff involved in the creel survey. Once sublocation codes are
assigned they should be used consistently throughout the study. These assigned values should be
recorded on the Mark-sense Study Code Form (Figure 12).
Each digit of Sublocation is a binary (additive) field. Do not record a value greater than 9 for any
one digit.
Period         00-99
Record the sampling period here.
Each digit of Period is a binary (additive) field. Do not record a value greater than 9 for any one
digit.
Species Code           Sport Fish codes
This is the species of fish recorded on this sheet. Information on only one species of fish can be
recorded on a form. See Appendix D for the Sport Fish species codes.
Each digit of Species is a binary (additive) field. Do not record a value greater than 9 for any one
digit.
Variable 1 ... Variable 3 000-999
These fields may be used as the Project Leader sees fit, as long as they are used consistently
throughout a given study. These fields are binary, but do not record any value greater than 9 in
any one digit.
Variable 4     Any ONE letter marked in each field
Variable 4 is really three independent fields stacked on top of each other. Only one letter per
field may be marked.
7.3    BIOLOGICAL DATA
Sex M or F
Status    1 or 2 or 3 or 4
Length    length in mm (up to 1999)
Trailing zeroes must be entered, but leading zeroes need not be. Note that there is a single "1" to
left of the hundreds for the thousands place. You can, therefore, record a fish length up to 1999
mm.



                                                46
Tag Number              00000-99999
The upper two digits of tag number are binary (additive) fields. They have the choices 0,1,2,4
and 8. Mark these to sum to the total you want. Each digit must be no higher than 9. For
example, if your tag number is 7000 you would mark the 4, 2 and the 1 under the 1,000's, and
zero under the 100's, 10's and 1's.
You must enter trailing zeroes, but you don't need to enter leading zeroes.
Weight/Variable         varies
Each digit is binary (additive), but do not record a value greater than 9 for any one digit or you
will get an error code in your data file. If you plan to use this as a 4-digit number, the top row is
the 1000's place, below it is the 100's place, below that the 10's and the bottom row is the 1's. To
enable this field to be used as four independent fields, there will be no errors alarmed in the data
file if trailing zeros are omitted.
Option 1, Option 2, Option 3          0-63
Each of these three rows is intended to be an independent field for you to use for your specific
needs. Each of these are binary (additive) fields, and values up to 63 may be recorded in each.
Variable       000-999
This is for recording a 3-digit (or less) value for each fish, as needed. Each digit is binary
(additive), but do not record a value greater than 9 for any one digit.
Card Number             000-999
Record the number of the scale card upon which scales from the fish were stored. Each digit of
this field is binary (additive), but do not record a value greater than 9 for any one digit.
Card Position           00-99
Record the position of the scale on the card.
Age    Age of fish
Use the European method to record age of salmon. For all other species record the total age in
years.
Example of the European method: A salmon has lived 3 years in fresh water and 2 in salt and is 6
years of age. The European age would be 3.2. You would enter a 3 in the tens digit and a 2 in
the ones digit. For salmon that spent 0 years in fresh water, enter a 0 in the tens digit.
Age Error      R or I
Mark R for a regenerated scale, I for illegible, or leave blank. Only one of these cells may be
marked.
7.4    LITHO-CODE
Litho-code DO NOT PUT ANY MARKS IN THIS AREA
The left side of the form has a special field called a litho-code. This is the machine-readable
form of the number printed on the front of the form. Do not mark any of these litho-code cells.
When your data sheets have been read you will receive a listing of your data in which each line
will be associated with this litho-code.

                           8. TAGGING LENGTH FORM
8.1    INTRODUCTION
The Tagging Length form (Figure 15) was designed for those who need to record many lengths
and tag numbers (such as during tag deployment) and had difficulty using the Biological (Age-
Weight-Length) form for this purpose because they had to flip it from front to back to record tag
number. Its use is almost identical to that of the Biological form. The fields have just been
rearranged, and a few relabeled.
This form is used to record biological information about sampled fish. Each sheet is intended for
the recording of fish caught on one date. Each line of the form is intended for the measurement
of a single fish.
The back of the form is a continuation of each line from the front of the form. Line 1 on the front
is the same fish as line 1 on the back.
If you turn in a form with no biological information on it, one record with blank biological fields
will be generated from that sheet.
8.2    HEADER FIELDS – FRONT OF FORM
Location
The location field is in the upper right-hand corner on the front of each form. The first row of the
location block will be used to designate the general survey area. These survey areas correspond
to the areas used by the Statewide Harvest Survey. Number codes for these areas are given in
Appendix B.
Survey Area            One letter marked
The survey area field is in the upper right-hand corner on the front of each form.
The Statewide Harvest survey area should be marked. Letter codes for these areas are given in
Appendix B.
If you are not sure what survey area your study is in, either contact RTS or consult the latest
Statewide Harvest Survey Federal Aid report.
Site   001-999
This is a unique Statewide Harvest code assigned to your survey location (Appendix C). Consult
RTS for the correct site code for your survey location if it is not listed Appendix C. If the site
code for your area is one of the few that are four digits long, record only the hundreds, tens, and
ones.
Sublocation 00 to 99
Sublocation codes are used to separate portions of a fishery. You will need to use this if you
want to generate separate estimates for subsections of a site.
The Project Leader must decide in advance how (and if) the sublocation field will be used. It is
helpful to coordinate sublocation codes between studies, if more than one study will be done in a
given Statewide Harvest survey area/site. If you don't know what the official site code is for the
area you are studying, write or call RTS to find out. If it is a new site it may take a few days to
assign a code.



                                                50
Sublocation codes shall be numbers from 00 to 99. Within that framework, sublocation codes
can be assigned by the project staff involved in the creel survey. Once sublocation codes are
assigned they should be used consistently throughout the study. These assigned values should be
recorded on the Mark-sense Study Code Form (Figure 16).
Page 00-99
You should instruct your field crews whether you want to start the page numbers at 1 each day,
or start at 1 the first day of the study and go up from there throughout the season.
Date
The date entered in this field is the date that the data are collected. Data for only one date may be
put on a single mark-sense sheet.
All six digits of this field must be completed, or an error code will result. The only exception is
for the year 2000 and beyond, which is indicated by leaving the year tens digit blank. If the date
is in the current year, the standard Sport Fishing week and day type are automatically calculated
and stored in the data file. Sport Fishing weeks start on a Saturday. In 1998, week 1 is two days
long (Thursday and Friday, January 1 and 2). The day type is set to 1 if the date is a weekend, 2
if it is a weekday. Holidays are not treated specially. If you want a weekday to be considered a
weekend day, you must change your data file to reflect this.
Species Code           Sport Fish codes
This is the species of fish recorded on this sheet. Information on only one species of fish can be
recorded on a form. Enter one digit of the species code in each field of this block. See Appendix
D for the Sport Fish species codes.
Project Number         000000-999999
This is intended to be your project budget code, but you may use it as needed. The first 3 digits
are entered in the top row, and the last 3 digits in the second row.
Option 1 ... Option 4          000-999
These fields may be used to record any variable the Project Leader sees fit.
Type of Measurement - Length & Weight                 one type for each measurement
Only one type of measurement can be marked for length and weight. See the code listing in
Table 8 for the possible types of measurements.
Type of Measurement - Fishery one type
This is the type of fishery (test, sport, commercial, or subsistence) in which the fish were caught.
Only one type can be marked.
Gear Code Sport Fish gear codes
This is the type of gear used to catch the fish. Valid codes are shown in Appendix E. The top
row is for the tens digit, the bottom row is for the ones digit.
Mesh Size - Inches and Eighth's 0-4 in, 0-7 eighth's
This is the mesh size of the net.
8.3    HEADER FIELDS - BACK OF FORM
Variable Fields
These are variable fields that can be used to record information unique to your study.


                                                 51
Age Structure Type              one type
This is the structure used to age the fish (such as scale or otolith). Only one type can be entered.
There are 5 variable cells in this field which can be used to record an age structure that is unique
to your study.
See Table 8 for the possible age structure types.
Type of Tag two digit code for type of tag
See Table 8 for the codes for different types of tags.
8.4     BIOLOGICAL DATA – FRONT OF FORM
Sex M or F
Length    length in mm (up to 1999)
Trailing zeroes must be entered, but leading zeroes need not be. Note that there is a single "1" to
left of the hundreds for the thousandths place. You can, therefore, record a fish length up to 1999
mm.
Tag Number 00000-99999
The upper two digits of tag number are binary (additive) fields. They have the choices 0,1,2,4
and 8. Mark these to sum to the total you want. For example, if your tag number is 7000 you
would mark the 4, 2 and the 1 under the 1,000's, and zero under the 100's, 10's and 1's.
You must enter trailing zeroes, but you don't need to enter leading zeroes.
8.5     BIOLOGICAL DATA - BACK OF FORM
Age     Age of fish
Use the European method to record age of salmon. For all other species record the total age in
years.
Example of the European method: A salmon has lived 3 years in fresh water and 2 in salt and is 6
years of age. The European age would be 3.2. You would enter a 3 in the tens digit and a 2 in
the ones digit. For salmon that spent 0 years in fresh water, enter a 0 in the tens digit.
Age Error       R or I
Mark R for a regenerated scale, I for illegible, or leave blank. Only one of these cells may be
marked.
Fate K
Mark this cell if the fish was killed.
Recp. Y
Mark this cell if this is a recaptured fish.
Fin Clip        1-127
Mark the Sport Fish fin clip code. See Table 8 for a list of codes. This is a binary (additive)
field. Mark the cells needed to add up to the number you want.
Tag Color       0-15
Mark the Sport Fish tag color code. See Table 8 for a list of codes. This is a binary (additive)
field. Mark the cells needed to add up to the number you want.




                                                 52
Option 5       0-15
This field may be used to record whatever the Project Leader sees fit. This is a binary (additive)
field. Mark the cells needed to add up to the number you want.
Option 6       0000-9999
This field may be used to record whatever the Project Leader sees fit.
8.6    LITHO-CODE
Litho-codeDO NOT PUT ANY MARKS IN THIS AREA
The left side of the form has a special field called a litho-code. This is the machine-readable
form of the number printed on the front of the form. Do not mark any of these litho-code cells.
When your data sheets have been read you will receive a listing of your data in which each line
will be associated with this litho-code.
8.7    SCALE NUMBERS
There is no space designated on this form for scale numbers. Scale numbers have been used in
some studies to match scale envelopes with fish entries. If you need to associate scales taken in
the field with data recorded on these forms, record the litho-code number and the line or entry
number from your mark-sense form on to your scale envelope.
Suppose the litho-code number is 68345 and the entry number is 6, then the scale number will be
68345-06.
If you use gum cards instead of envelopes, a slightly different approach should be used. A
typical gum card will hold 30 or 40 scales (10 rows of 4 scales).
Method 1: Since the biological mark-sense form has rows for 30 fish, then 1 scale from each fish
could be put on the gum card in positions 1 through 30. There would be a one gum card to one
mark-sense form relationship. Simply use the litho-code to match gum cards and mark-sense
forms.
Method 2: In method 2, up to 4 scales are collected from each fish. Each row on a gum card
would be one fish or line on the mark-sense form. This method would have 3 gum cards per
mark-sense form. Under this method, you must record both the litho code and line number group
(1-10,11-20, or 21-30) on the gum card.
When the ages have been determined, you will mark the age information on the same sheets you
have marked the length and weight information. RTS will then feed these forms through the
optical scanner. If length-weight data reports are needed before the scales have been read, a two
step process can be used.

                           9. REVISED TAGGING FORM
9.1    INTRODUCTION
The Revised Tagging form (Figure 17) was designed to be an improvement on the Tagging
Length form. It has all of the fields in the same arrangement as the Tagging Length form, and
also has room to write down the tag number and length of each fish. It has two additional fields,
Samp and Tlost (sampled and tag lost) for each fish. The Tag Number field has six digits instead
of only five.
This form is used to record biological information about sampled fish. Each sheet is intended for
the recording of fish caught on one date. Each line of the form is intended for the measurement
of a single fish.
The back of the form is a continuation of each line from the front of the form. Line 1 on the front
is the same fish as line 1 on the back.
If you turn in a form with no biological information on it, one record with blank biological fields
will be generated from that sheet.
9.2    HEADER FIELDS-FRONT OF FORM
Survey Area One letter marked
The survey area field is in the upper right-hand corner on the front of each form.
The Statewide Harvest survey area should be marked. Letter codes for these areas are given in
Appendix B.
If you are not sure what survey area your study is in, either contact RTS or consult the latest
Statewide Harvest Survey Federal Aid report.
Site   001-999
This is a unique Statewide Harvest code assigned to your survey location (Appendix C). Consult
RTS for the correct site code for your survey location if it is not listed in Appendix C.. If the site
code for your area is one of the few that are four digits long, record only the hundreds, tens, and
ones.
Sublocation 00-99
Sublocation codes are used to separate portions of a fishery. You will need to use this if you
want to generate separate estimates for subsections of a site.
The Project Leader must decide in advance how (and if) the sublocation field will be used. It is
helpful to coordinate sublocation codes between studies, if more than one study will be done in a
given Statewide Harvest survey area/site. If you don't know what the official site code is for the
area you are studying, write or call RTS to find out. If it is a new site it may take a few days to
assign a code.
Sublocation codes shall be numbers from 00 to 99. Within that framework, sublocation codes
can be assigned by the project staff involved in the creel survey. Once sublocation codes are
assigned they should be used consistently throughout the study. These assigned values should be
recorded on the Mark-sense Study Code Form (Figure 18).




                                                 59
Page 00-99
You should instruct your field crews whether you want to start the page numbers at 1 each day,
or start at 1 the first day of the study and go up from there throughout the season.
Date
The date entered in this field is the date that the data are collected. Data for only one date may be
put on a single mark-sense sheet.
All six digits of this field must be completed, or an error code will result. The only exception is
for the year 2000 and beyond, which is indicated by leaving the year tens digit blank. If the date
is in the current year, the standard Sport Fishing week and day type are automatically calculated
and stored in the data file. Sport Fishing weeks start on a Saturday. In 1998, week 1 is two days
long (Thursday and Friday, January 1 and 2). The day type is set to 1 if the date is a weekend, 2
if it is a weekday. Holidays are not treated specially. If you want a weekday to be considered a
weekend day, you must change your data file to reflect this.
Species Code           Sport Fish codes
This is the species of fish recorded on this sheet. Information on only one species of fish can be
recorded on a form. Enter one digit of the code in each field of this block. See Appendix D for
the Sport Fish species codes.
Project Number         000000-999999
This is intended to be your project budget code, but you may use it as needed. The first 3 digits
are entered in the top row, and the last 3 digits in the second row.
Option 1 ... Option 4           000-999
These fields may be used to record any variable the Project Leader sees fit.
Type of Measurement - Length & Weight                 one type for each measurement
Only one type of measurement can be marked for length and weight. See the code listing in
Table 9 for the possible types of measurements.
Type of Measurement - Fishery one type
This is the type of fishery (test, sport, commercial, or subsistence) in which the fish were caught.
Only one type can be marked.
Gear Code Sport Fish gear codes
This is the type of gear used to catch the fish. Valid codes are shown in Appendix E. The top
row is for the tens digit, the bottom row is for the ones digit.
Mesh Size - Inches and Eighths 0-4 in, 0-7 eighths
This is the mesh size of the net.
9.3    HEADER FIELDS- BACK OF FORM
Variable Fields        varies
These are variable fields that can be used to record information unique to your study.
Age Structure Type              one type
This is the structure used to age the fish (such as scale or otolith). Only one type can be entered.
There are 5 variable cells in this field which can be used to record an age structure that is unique
to your study. See Table 9 for the possible age structure types.


                                                 60
Type of Tag two digit code for type of tag
See Table 9 for tag codes.
9.4     BIOLOGICAL DATA-FRONT OF FORM
Sex M or F
Length    length in mm (up to 1999)
Trailing zeroes must be entered, but leading zeroes need not be. Note that there is a single "1" to
left of the hundreds for the thousandths place. You can, therefore, record a fish length up to 1999
mm.
Tag Number 00000-999999
The upper four digits of tag number are binary (additive) fields. They have the choices 0,1,2,4
and 8. Mark these to sum to the total you want. For example, if your tag number is 7000 you
would mark the 4, 2 and the 1 under the 1,000's, and zero under the 100's, 10's and 1's. You must
enter trailing zeroes, but you don't need to enter leading zeroes.
9.5     BIOLOGICAL DATA-BACK OF FORM
Age     Age of fish
Use the European method to record age of salmon. For all other species record the total age in
years.
Example of the European method: A salmon has lived 3 years in fresh water and 2 in salt and is 6
years of age. The European age would be 3.2. You would enter a 3 in the tens digit and a 2 in
the ones digit. For salmon that spent 0 years in fresh water, enter a 0 in the tens digit.
Age Error       R or I
Mark R for a regenerated scale, I for illegible, or leave blank.
Fate K
Mark this cell if the fish was killed.
Samp Y
Mark this cell if this fish was sampled.
Tlost Y
Mark this cell if the fish had been previously tagged, but lost its tag prior to recapture.
Fin Clip        1-127
Mark the Sport Fish fin clip code. See Table 9 for a list of codes. This is a binary (additive)
field. Mark the cells needed to add up to the number you want.
Tag Color       0-15
Mark the Sport Fish tag color code. See Table 9 for a list of codes. This is a binary (additive)
field. Mark the cells needed to add up to the number you want.
Option 5        0-15
This field may be used to record whatever the Project Leader sees fit. This is a binary (additive)
field. Mark the cells needed to add up to the number you want.
Option 6        0000-9999
This field may be used to record whatever the Project Leader sees fit.


                                                  61
9.6    LITHO-CODE
Litho-code DO NOT PUT ANY MARKS IN THIS AREA
The left side of the form has a special field called a litho-code. This is the machine-readable
form of the number printed on the front of the form. Do not mark any of these litho-code cells.
When your data sheets have been read you will receive a listing of your data in which each line
will be associated with this litho-code.
9.7    SCALE NUMBERS
There is no space designated on this form for scale numbers. Scale numbers have been used in
some studies to match scale envelopes with fish entries. If you need to associate scales taken in
the field with data recorded on these forms, record the litho-code number and the line or entry
number from your mark-sense form on to your scale envelope.
Suppose the litho-code number is 68345 and the entry number is 6, then the scale number will be
68345-06.
If you use gum cards instead of envelopes, a slightly different approach should be used. A
typical gum card will hold 30 or 40 scales (10 rows of 4 scales).
Method 1: Since the biological mark-sense form has rows for 30 fish, then 1 scale from each fish
could be put on the gum card in positions 1 through 30. There would be a one gum card to one
mark-sense form relationship. Simply use the litho-code to match gum cards and mark-sense
forms.
Method 2: In method 2, up to 4 scales are collected from each fish. Each row on a gum card
would be one fish or line on the mark-sense form. This method would have 3 gum cards per
mark-sense form. Under this method, you must record both the litho-code and line number group
(1-10, 11-20, 21-30).
When the ages have been determined, you will mark the age information on the same sheets you
have marked the length and weight information. RTS will then feed these forms through the
optical scanner. If length-weight data reports are needed before the scales have been read, a two
step process can be used.

                                  10. HOOP NET FORM
10.1 INTRODUCTION
The Hoop Net form (Figure 19) was designed to monitor traps and record biological information.
There is room for three traps per form, and ten fish per trap, with an option of recording up to 30
fish per trap.
The back of the form is a continuation of each line from the front of the form. Line 20 on the
front holds information for the same fish as Line 20 on the back.
If you turn in a form with no trap or biological information on it, one record with blank trap and
biological fields will be generated from that sheet.
10.2 HEADER FIELDS - FRONT OF FORM
Page 000-999
You should instruct your field crews whether you want to start the page numbers at 1 each day,
or start at 1 the first day of the study and go up from there throughout the season.
Date
The date entered in this field is the date the nets are set. Data for only one set date may be put on
a single mark-sense sheet. All six digits of this field must be completed, or an error code will
result. If the date is in the current year, the standard Sport Fishing week and day type are
automatically calculated and stored in the data file. Sport Fishing weeks start on a Saturday. In
1998, week 1 is two days long (Thursday and Friday, January 1 and 2). The day type is set to 1 if
the date is a weekend, 2 if it is a weekday. Holidays are not treated specially. If you want a
weekday to be considered a weekend day, you must change your data file to reflect this.
Survey Area One letter marked
The Statewide Harvest survey area should be marked. Letter codes for these areas are given in
Appendix B. If you are not sure of the survey area of your study, either contact RTS or consult
the latest Statewide Harvest Survey Federal Aid report.
Site   001-999
This is a unique Statewide Harvest code assigned to your survey location (Appendix C). Consult
RTS for the correct site code for your survey location if it is not listed in Appendix C. If the site
code for your area is one of the few that are four digits long, record only the hundreds, tens, and
ones.
Sublocation
Sublocation codes are used to separate portions of a fishery. You will need to use this if you
want to generate separate estimates for subsections of a site.
The Project Leader must decide in advance how (and if) the sublocation field will be used. It is
helpful to coordinate sublocation codes between studies, if more than one study will be done in a
given Statewide Harvest survey area/site. If you don't know what the official site code is for the
area you are studying, write or call RTS to find out. If it is a new site it may take a few days to
assign a code.
Sublocation codes are numbers from 00 to 99. Within that framework, sublocation codes can be
assigned by the project staff involved in the creel survey. Once sublocation codes are assigned



                                                 68
they should be used consistently throughout the study. These assigned values should be recorded
on the Mark-sense Study Code Form shown on Figure 20.
Collector      000-999
You may record a collector code here, to document who collected the data.
Species A-D Sport Fish species codes
The values in these fields apply to the entire form. On the back of the form, note that there is a
place to record the catch of these species for each trap. Species A is always the species for which
biological data are recorded. You may record the number of each of species B through D that are
caught, but no biological information for these species. Sport Fish species codes are shown in
Appendix D.
Type of Measurement - Length & Weight                 one type for each measurement
Only one type of measurement can be marked for length and weight per form. See the code
listing in Table 10 for the possible types of measurements.
Type of Measurement - Fishery one type
This is the type of fishery (test, sport, commercial, or subsistence) in which the fish were caught.
Only one type can be marked.
Gear Code Sport Fish gear codes
This is the type of gear used to catch the fish. Valid codes are shown in Appendix E. The top
row is for the tens digit, the bottom row is for the ones digit.
Mesh Size - Inches and Eighth's 0-4 in, 0-7 eighth's
This is the mesh size of the net.
10.3 HEADER FIELDS - BACK OF FORM
Trap Set Duration 0-9
This field in combination with trap set and pull time, tells how long the trap was in the water.
Tag Type       Mark-Sense tag type codes
Use the tag type codes shown Table 10.
Option 1-4 000-999
These fields may be used to record information applicable to the entire sheet.
10.4 SET INFORMATION (BACK OF FORM)
Cont on continuation lines Y
Mark this when you need to record biological information for more than 10 fish for a trap. If
"Cont" is marked, then any trap-specific data recorded on that line (from "Trap No." through
"Catch D") is ignored - it is assumed the trap-specific information from the previous trap applies.
Note there is no "Cont" field for the first trap on each form. Information about a single trap
should be recorded on a single mark sense form. There is no mechanism for continuing from one
form to another. If you should record biological information for more than 30 fish from one trap,
record the first 30 fish on one form, then fill out the trap set information again on another form
and record the rest of the fish there.




                                                69
Trap No.        000-999
This is the trap number.
Cell X          000-999
This is the X coordinate of the X-Y grid used to locate the traps.
SubCell Y       000-999
This is the Y coordinate of the X-Y grid used to locate the traps.
Depth (ft)      000-999
Record depth in feet.
Habitat         00-99
Record the habitat code as determined by your study design.
Set Time        00-24
This is the hour the trap was set. Record leading zeroes.
Pull Time       00-24
This is the hour the trap was pulled. Record leading zeroes. Use trap set duration to record days
elapsed.
Option 5        00-99
This field can be used to record trap-specific information, if needed in your study.
Number of Fish A-D              000-999
Record the number of fish of Species A (as designated in the Species A header field on the front
of the form) caught in the trap under "Spec A Number of Fish". Do the same for Species B
through D, if necessary. The number of fish under Species A should be greater than or equal to
the number of lines of biological information for this trap.
10.5 BIOLOGICAL DATA – FRONT OF FORM
Length          length in mm (up to 1999)
Trailing zeroes must be entered, but leading zeroes need not be. Note that there is a single "1" to
left of the hundreds for the thousandths place. You can, therefore, record a fish length up to 1999
mm.
Tag Number 000000-999999
The upper three digits of tag number are binary (additive) fields. They have the choices 0,1,2,4
and 8. Mark these to sum to the total you want. For example, if your tag number is 9000 you
would mark the 8 and the 1 under the 1,000's, and zero under the 100's, 10's and 1's.
You must enter trailing zeroes, but you don't need to enter leading zeroes.
10.6 BIOLOGICAL DATA – BACK OF FORM
Loss Y
Mark this cell if the fish had been previously tagged, but lost its tag prior to recapture.
Fate K
Mark this cell if the fish was killed.




                                                  70
Recap Y
Mark this cell if this is a recaptured fish.
Fin Clip        1-131
Mark the Sport Fish fin clip code. See Table 10 for a list of codes. This is a binary (additive)
field. Mark the cells needed to add up to the number you want.
Tag Color       0-15
Mark the Sport Fish tag color code. See Table 10 for a list of codes. This is a binary (additive)
field. Mark the cells needed to add up to the number you want.
Option 6        0-15
This field may be used to record fish-specific information, if needed in your study design. This is
a binary (additive) field. Mark the cells needed to add up to the number you want.
Sex     M or F
Age     Age of fish
Use the European method to record age of salmon. For all other species record the total age in
years.
Example of the European method: A salmon has lived 3 years in fresh water and 2 in salt and is 6
years of age. The European age would be 3.2. You would enter a 3 in the tens digit and a 2 in
the ones digit. For salmon that spent 0 years in fresh water, enter a 0 in the tens digit.
10.7 LITHO-CODE
Litho-code DO NOT PUT ANY MARKS IN THIS AREA
The left side of the form has a special field called a litho-code. This is the machine-readable
form of the number printed on the front of the form. Do not mark any of these litho-code cells.
When your data sheets have been read you will receive a listing of your data in which each line
will be associated with this litho-code.

GEARTYPE           2     135      136      137      The gear type field is stored as 2 fields in one. The alpha code portion is assigned a number
                                                    (the first field, SP, is 1, the second, BT, is 2, etc.) and stored in the first digit of gear type.
                                                    The numeric portion of gear type is stored in the second digit. For example, if both gear types
                                                    BT and 3 were marked, column 135 would contain a 2, and column 136 a 3. If BT alone were
                                                    marked, column 135 would contain a 2 and column 136 would be blank.
