This paper provides data on juvenile densities throughout the Skeena watershed in the year following record low escapements and documents the responses in escapement to the conservation measures taken in 1998. For the Babine Lake coho aggregate, advice is provided on a sustainable exploitation rate and both an escapement target and an escapement Limit Reference Point. Further assessment of the status of Skeena coho is provided and productivity differences of the interior and coastal coho are further documented.
