Babine Lake Sockeye Smolt Enumeration - Hydroacoustic Feasibility

Skeena Fisheries Commission (SFC) conducted a study to investigate the feasibility of using hydroacoustic methodology to enumerate outmigrating sockeye smolts at the outlet of Nilkitkwa Lake in the spring of 2014 and 2015. Hydroacoustic techniques have the potential to produce accurate data and be less invasive and labour intensive, and more cost effective than the mark-recapture currently method used to estimate the abundance of sockeye smolts during the annual seasonal migration from the Babine Lake Watershed.
