Meziadin Lake Biological Escapement Goal and Considerations for Increasing Yield of Sockeye Salmon, Oncorhynchus Nerka

Meziadin Lake Biological Escapement Goal and Considerations for Increasing Yield of Sockeye Salmon, Oncorhynchus Nerka

Microform - 2002
Rate this:
Meziadin Lake produces the most abundant sockeye salmon stock in the Nass River drainage and the escapement comprises an average of 75% of the total sockeye salmon escapement to the Nass River. This paper synthesizes all data on Meziadin Lake sockeye collected for the brood years 1990 to 1998. The main objectives are to: identify the biological escapement goal for Meziadin sockeye; identify factors limiting production of juvenile sockeye from the lake; and evaluate the potential for increasing sockeye salmon production at Meziadin Lake. Results are presented & discussed regarding lake limnology, salmon production capacity, adult & juvenile recruitment. Finally, options for increasing yield and concerns about fishery management are discussed.
