Annual Run Reconstruction Northern Boundary Area Sockeye

The Northern Boundary Technical Committee’s (NBTC) northern boundary area sockeye reconstruction assessments program has been conducted annually since the mid 1990’s to provide bilaterally agreed data on the sockeye stock composition and escapement for Nass, Skeena, Macdonald, and other US sockeye stocks originating in the northern boundary area.
The key components of the program include: 1) acquiring sockeye escapement, catch and stock composition data from Alaskan and Canadian northern boundary areas, 2) updating databases and providing initial model runs, 3) facilitating the NBTC workshop to provide the bilaterally agreed outcomes on the stock specific abundances 4) provide a report on the final agreed outcomes.
