The Moyie Lake portion of this report includes a summary of the gamete collections, a summary of the passive acoustic telemetry study initiated in 2013 and a summary of the Moyie Lake spawning population estimate based on re-capture records. The monitoring and evaluation efforts within the Kootenay River and Lake in BC included in this report are cod trapping and passive sonic telemetry, as well as an update on hatchery releases from 2017. Other monitoring programs include the large hoop netting program completed annually by IDFG (for all annual reports see IDFG's library on their main website). All monitoring programs are carried out with cooperative efforts from all international co-managers in order to assist in the evaluation of hatchery success as well as to inform the trajectory of the remaining wild population.
