Kitwanga River Salmon Enumeration Facility

Beautiful silver sockeye salmon at the Kitwanga fence. This fish would have been captured for scale and length sampling, and to determine sex.

Snapshots of GFA Projects

The fishwheel was tried in 2 locations within the canyon, with the second location working better.

Kitwanga Smolt Enumeration Facility

From GFA's experience in 2008, most sockeye moved through the trap on the left side of the fence (bottom section of fence in photo), so trap boxes were redesigned and moved in 2009 to adapt to this.
