Kitwanga Smolt Enumeration Facility

GFA technical crews are the backbone of the program, working long, split shifts each day to maintain the fence and process each fish that passes through, sometimes over 200,000 fish per season.

This large cottonwood tree has been wedged into the falls at least since 2008, making it even more difficult for fish to moved past the falls. GFA attempted to cut the log out in 2010.
