What can Discovery Passage smolts tell us about returning Fraser River sockeye?

This project targets Fraser River sockeye and other sockeye stocks that migrate to the ocean via Discovery Passage (e.g., Sakinaw Lake sockeye). One of the main benefits of this project will be comparison of stock proportions among out-migrating juveniles versus the relative abundance of stocks in the adult return. The final report will provide conclusions on the ability of low-cost juvenile sampling in marine corridors to contribute to in-season advice for the management of sockeye fisheries in subsequent years.
