Alsek – Klukshu Chinook and Sockeye Escapement Enumeration

Continuation of the Klukshu weir is identified as a priority in the Pacific Salmon Commission Transboundary Panel Strategic Salmon Plan (March 2009). The weir monitors Chinook and Sockeye escapement to an important Alsek River sub-drainage. When coupled with GSI it permits estimation of escapement drainage-wide. It is the primary tool for identifying whether or not Klukshu and Alsek river escapement goals have been achieved.
