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.

Kitwanga River Salmon Enumeration Facility

Chinook salmon are typically the first to migrate through the fence each year. This Chinook is swimming overtop the white teflon bottom of the trapbox.

Snapshots of GFA Projects

GFA crews dipnet Brown Bear Creek sockeye. These sockeye are a genetically unique, river-run sockeye. GFA collects DNA samples each season to learn more about this unique, at risk salmon run.
