Alsek River Sockeye and Chinook Salmon Stock Restoration Task Group – Initial Transboundary Panel Project Scoping Initiative

The focus of this project is to explore, review and evaluate possible bottle-necks to Canadian-origin sockeye and Chinook salmon production and survival in the Alsek River watershed with the objective of developing conceptual project concepts that will, once refined and implemented, facilitate stock-rebuilding. The work will involve investigation of stock and habitat restoration and/or enhancement measures which are acceptable to local community interests, are in compliance with salmon enhancement and restoration policies and regulations and provide the greatest likelihood of measurable success within the near-term (two life-cycle) period. Issues potentially affecting salmon stock production will be investigated to develop feasible rebuilding projects or programs that are likely to achieve sustainable salmon production.
