Stock Composition of Stikine and Taku In-river Fisheries – DNA analysis

This is the analysis of Chinook and sockeye tissue samples collected from Stikine and Taku in-river commercial and test fisheries making use of the baseline samples collected with Northern Fund assistance since 2007. Sufficient baseline samples have now been accumulated to permit this analysis. It is important to analyze the 2009 samples before they degrade or are lost; 2013 sample analysis will relate to this year’s fisheries.
