Sockeye Smolt Enumeration at Babine Lake – Hydroacoustic Feasibility

In 2014, we will identify a suitable locationat the outlet of Nilkitkwa Lake with an appropriate depth cross-section so that one or two transducers could ensonify most of the channel width, and water column. When a suitable location is found out-migrating sockeye smolts will be sampled acoustically in tandem with the mark-and-recapture program.
