The trap will remain in the Big Quilcene River for the next couple of months, the entire time period when fish are headed out of the river to the ocean. From the data collected during this time, we will be able to determine how many coho salmon left the Big Quilcene River for the ocean and how many fish call the Big Quilcene River home.
