Chignik Inseason Genetics – Phase 2

Synopsis:The two distinct runs of sockeye salmon in the Chignik River watershed (Black Lake early run and Chignik Lake late run) provide a crucial cultural and food resource for four year-round communities in the Chignik area. This project will collect and analyze genetic information both inseason and postseason to determine the run timing through the Chignik River weir of both stocks. Inseason mixed-stock analysis (MSA) is the best available tool for precise escapement goal targeting of mixed stock runs especially in a system such as Chignik where both runs are highly utilized subsistence resources. This project continues work begun in AKSSF project 44509.
