Rearing of Chinook Salmon Oncorhynchus Tshawytscha in Cold Water
Kalum Pilot Hatchery Experiences, 1980-83Microform - 1987
Chinook salmon were incubated and reared in a pilot-scale facility to assess the feasibility of using the Dry Creek spring water source as the water supply for a production-scale facility and to begin assessment of release strategies for a Skeena chinook stock. The Kalum Pilot Hatchery was operated for 3 years. The first 2 years assessed the suitability of the site for future development as a hatchery and the last year produced different sizes of juvenile chinook to assist in defining suitable release strategies for northern (particularly Skeena) stocks.
