Skeena River Recreational Chinook Creel Survey

The main objective of this project is to provide monthly catch estimates for all salmon species in the sport fishery on the waters of the Skeena River (downstream of Terrace), with special emphasis on the Chinook catch estimate. Additional objectives include recording the incidence of adipose fin clips of Chinook and Coho such that awareness factors for the expansion of voluntary CWT head submissions may be developed and the collection of DNA and age data of Chinook salmon.
