Audience:  Government and Public

In summer 2009, an array was designed and deployed in the Bulkley River system by Kintama Research, with the assistance of a local river guide. Twelve acoustic receivers were deployed in the Bulkley River on 10-12 July 2009 and 67 returning wild steelhead were subsequently tagged with individually identifiable Vemco V9-2H acoustic tags. One fish was harvested and therefore omitted from the data analysis (n=66). Fish were released from 5 August to 24 September at two collection sites: (a) the beach seine site immediately below the Moricetown Canyon and (b) the dip-net site located at the Moricetown Canyon falls. We recovered all receivers between the 9-11 November 2009, approximately four months later. Over the deployment period, a total of 38,808 detections were recorded from 63 of the 66 tagged adult steelhead.
