Author: Reimer, A.
Year: 2013
Report ID: Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Sport Fish, Regional Operational Plan ROP.SF.2A.2013.14, Soldotna
Abstract: The primary purpose of this research is to provide an estimate of Chinook salmon abundance entering the Kenai River that is independent of existing sonar programs. These estimates of abundance will be used, in conjunction with sonar based estimates of abundance to develop escapement goals for Kenai River Chinook salmon. A secondary purpose of this research is to monitor Chinook salmon migration within the Kenai River drainage for the purpose of informing management decisions with respect to time and area.
