A pilot project using acoustic telemetry was designed and deployed in the Skeena and Bulkley River system in summer 2008 by Kintama Research, with the assistance of Ministry of Environment staff and local river guides. This project was intended to test the technical feasibility of using acoustic technology in the free-flowing Skeena River to answer several important questions about the survival and migratory behaviour of returning adult steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss).
