Kitwanga Smolt Enumeration Facility

Cutthroat trout are captured, sampled and released downstream, as they migrate through the fence to spawn each spring.

Kitwanga River Salmon Enumeration Facility

Each year hundreds of tourists visit the fence as they travel the highway to Alaska. The KRSEF is located on the property of the Cassiar RV Park, and is a major draw for the facility.

Snapshots of GFA Projects

Brown Bear Creek has a relatively short section of productive spawning habitat, before salmon migrating upstream hit the falls, which is a barrier.
