I believe the Ontario biologist will be looking at and counting the pyloric caeca at the end of the stomach.  During the early days of the ESLO derby the grand prize was limited to chinook salmon. A hybrid coho chinook was caught and was a possible winning fish.  They brought the fish in to DEC where I was working. DEC did not want to get involved in a private contest but we did let them use our reference books to let them make a determination. I can't remember numbers but chinooks have a high number of pyloric caeca and cohos have much fewer number. The fish had a number about midway between and they determined it to be a hybrid. With that said both that fish and the one recently caught are true monsters. you never know what you're going to catch in Lake Ontario.
