Stikine Chinook and Sockeye GSI

This proposal involves collection and genetic analysis of Chinook and sockeye tissue samples from commercial and test fisheries on the Stikine River for 2016-18, and analysis of back-logged samples from 2014 and 2015. This activity has been supported by the Northern Fund since 2008 and makes use of the baseline samples collected with Northern Fund assistance from 2007-12.
This will identify the composition of the commercial and test fishery harvests by stock groupings, for run timing and exploitation rate information.
