Table 2 Seasonal movement probability point estimates and credible intervals for acoustic tagged Pacific herring moving between the Sound and the entrance arrays \(\left (\psi _{j}^{4r}\right)\) and between the Gulf and the entrance arrays \(\left (\psi _{j}^{8r}\right)\). The entrance arrays include those in Hinchinbrook, the Strait, and the Passages. During spring and summer season (April–August) fish move from the Sound to the Gulf primarily through Hinchinbrook. During the fall and winter months (September—March) fish move from the Gulf to the Sound through the Strait

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