Movement of Radio Tagged Steelhead in the Morice River Determined by Helicopter and Fixed Station Tracking, 1994/95

This project is part of the joint Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) and BC Ministry of Environment program to reduce the incidental interception of steelhead bound for the Skeena River by 50%. Monitoring of key Skeena steelhead stocks will be important if this goal is to be achieved. Radio tags were applied to steelhead in the Morice-Bulkley systems to monitor winter movements and downstream migration of kelts. The primary purpose of tagging steelhead on the Morice River was to increase the sample size of tagged fish for proposed hydro-acoustic studies of downstream movements of kelts.
