This project is providing important information about the wild production of Chinook salmon in the Salmon River.

Other projects conducted around the Basin by agencies, universites and other partners are documenting wild reproduction of salmon and trout, and providing managers with other scientific knowledge needed to effectively manage this highly-valued diverse fishery.

 

Natural Reproduction of Chinook Salmon in the Salmon River, NY


Research Activities and Results of 2004

To determine the fate of adult spawners and to estimate the total number of fish entering the Salmon river to spawn in 2004, we focused our study on three components

1. Estimate adult abundance:

2. Measure the characteristics of redd sites ("spawning nests").

3. Map Chinook spawning areas to determine the distribution and abundance of redds in the river.
