Assessment of Sockeye Fry Passage at the Babine River Adult Salmon Counting Fence

Skeena Fisheries Commission (SFC) conducted a study to investigate whether the Babine River Counting Fence prevented sockeye fry that drifted downstream of the structure from migrating back upstream to suitable rearing habitat in June 2015. An engineering study to propose permanent modifications to the Babine River Counting Fence to mitigate the potential negative effects of the structure on sockeye fry upstream migration was also initiated.
