2001 Upper Kispiox Sockeye Stock Assessment

This project focused on the enumeration of sockeye stocks within the Swan and Stephens Lake Watershed and the suitability of the methods used to carry out this task. To successfully achieve the objectives of this project the GWA constructed an adult fish weir on Stephens Creek, the inlet to the Swan Lake Watershed. The weir enumerated most of the Swan Lake sockeye and provided an efficient method of capturing sockeye for tagging and biological data collection purposes. Between July 12 and September 28, 2001, 10,109 sockeye and 1,998 coho were counted through the weir.
