Audience:  Government and Public

The main goal was to assess the reproductive success of the 2009 AUM that were returned to the reservoir. Microsatellite DNA analysis of the tissues sampled from the 2011 JDM parental analysis to determine if any of the JDM sampled in 2011 were the progeny of sea-run kokanee (i.e., AUM transplanted into the reservoir in 2009). - Measurements of the stable isotopes ratio of strontium in otoliths of up to 20 of the JDM that were accidentally killed during enumeration and that could be identified by genetic parental analysis as potential progeny of AUM. - Estimation of the total number of JDM originating from AUM. - Preparation of a technical report summarizing findings.
