Steelhead Enumeration at Moricetown Canyon using Mark-Recapture, 2010

This project provided information about steelhead escapement in the Buckley River in 2010 by supporting collection and analysis of data by the Moricetown Canyon steelhead mark-recapture program. The Moricetown program has operated annually since 1999 to generate annual abundance estimates for steelhead migrating past the Moricetown Canyon falls. Data was collected in the field by Wet’suwet’en Fisheries and analysed by SKR Consultants to produce estimates of escapement and run timing.

project objectives
Increase understanding of Skeena Steelhead abundance through collection and analysis of mark-recapture data.
