Recovery Enhancement of Kilbella-Chuckwalla Chinook

Rivers Inlet Chinook are harvested in recreational fisheries, commercial and subsistence fisheries in BC and Alaska, and some of the largest Chinook salmon caught in marine waters originate from Rivers Inlet streams. This project is consistent with the 3rd goal of the Northern Fund, specifically, to enhance wild stock production through low technology techniques using capacity in existing facilities. 2016 is year 2 of a proposed 5-year enhancement program for Kilbella-Chuckwalla Chinook, and will continue to help boost production for a wild stock that is currently well below its production potential without creating any long-term operational obligations.
