Taku River Coho Salmon Escapement and Smolt Tagging Augmentation

Coho salmon returning to the Taku River pass through an offshore troll fishery before entering inside waters where they encounter seine, drift gillnet, and recreational fisheries. After entering the river, the remaining coho salmon encounter drift/set gillnet fisheries in Canada. Such a resource is worthy of a stock assessment program that directly estimates production parameters such as harvest, escapement, exploitation rate, smolt production, survival rates and brood year production. This project will provide annual estimates of escapement necessary to refine escapement goals and forecast runs. Improved escapement goals and run forecasts along with inseason abundance estimates allow implementation of abundance-based management. These combined efforts in-river along with adult sampling programs in the various marine fisheries allow detailed stock assessment analyses.
