Kitwanga River Salmon Enumeration Facility Annual Reports

In 2006 the Gitanyow Fisheries Authority partnered with DFO and the Skeena Fisheries Commission to develop the Kitwanga Sockeye Rebuilding Program. A key component of this program included the establishment of a means to accurately estimate sockeye escapement to the river, on an annual basis, to gauge the effectiveness of rebuilding efforts (Cleveland et al. 2006). The purpose of this project is to accurately monitor all six salmon species (including Steelhead) returning to the Kitwanga River on a yearly basis.
