Table 1 Pacific herring movement probabilities at Hinchinbrook, the Strait, and the Passages. The table details the full set of movement probabilities between the entrance arrays and the Sound (\(\psi _{j}^{r4}\)) and between the entrance arrays and the Gulf (\(\psi _{j}^{r8}\)). A seasonal back and forth pattern is found at Hinchinbrook. However, this pattern is not found at the Strait or the Passages

From: An empirical Bayesian approach to incorporate directional movement information from a forage fish into the Arnason-Schwarz mark-recapture model
