Author: Cope, J. L.
Year: 2016
Report ID: Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Regional Operational Plan ROP.SF.2A.2016.15, Anchorage.
Abstract: The Crooked Creek Chinook Salmon Enhancement Project is designed to monitor both naturally- and hatchery-produced Chinook salmon escapement as well as collect broodstock and conduct egg takes to provide additional sport fishing opportunities within the Kasilof River and other terminal fisheries on the Kenai Peninsula. This project will imprint Chinook salmon smolt for 7 to 10 days at the beginning of June. Additionally, age, sex, length, and genetic samples will be collected from returning naturally- and hatchery-produced Chinook salmon. The sustainable escapement goal for Crooked Creek is 650-1,700 naturally-produced Chinook salmon.
