Kokanee Ministry of Fisheries

Abstract: Kokanee look very much like sockeye salmon. Kokanee in non-breeding condition have bright silver sides and a dark grey to blue back, sometimes with a few dark markings on the dorsal fin (the fin on its back). The anal fin (the lower fin nearest the tail) has a long base and the trailing edge is quite angled rather than square, features often used to distinguish kokanee from char or trout. During spawning season, kokanee change colour, usually turning crimson with a green head, but sometimes black. The males develop long jaws, hooked snouts, and large teeth. A slight hump forms behind their head. Spawning females are not as colourful as the males and their overall shape does not change.
