Prospects for the 1948 Salmon Catch on the Skeena River

From time to time enquiries have been made of the investigators as to their opinions of the size of runs which can be expected in a given area in an approaching season. For that reason the following comments are being recorded for the Skeena river in 1948. The suggestions and estimates are the result of examination of large amounts of data on various phases of the life history. The deductions may only confirm opinions already held from the inspections of smaller parcels of information but even in that position, they may still be of use. The comments are based on the assumption that the catch by the fisherman in 1948 will be governed by the same conditions, physical, biological and economic, as have prevailed generally in the past. Poor weather conditions and lack of markets, for instance, could cause a lowering of the numbers taken.
