Species (Common Name):Herring
Pacific herring, Clupea pallasii, are important prey for many marine species found in Southeast Alaska and are also harvested in fisheries for commercial bait, commercial sac roe, commercial spawn-on-kelp, subsistence spawn-on-branches, subsistence spawn-on-kelp, personal use, and research/cost-recovery purposes. The Southeast Alaska Herring Management plan (5 AAC 27.190(3)) requires the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to assess the abundance of mature herring for each stock before allowing
The escapement of adult steelhead Oncorhynchus mykiss to Sitkoh Creek in 1993 was counted at a weir located about 0.5 km upstream of the mouth of the creek. Five hundred and twenty fish were counted from April 10 to June 1; the mid-point of the immigration occurred on May 1, 1993. The 1993 escapement was 37% less than the mean weir counts of 1936, 1937, 1982, and 1990. All 520 steelhead were sexed, and 183 were randomly sampled for lengths and ages. Of the randomly subsampled fish, 64% were
We conducted a postal survey of parties reserving U.S. Forest Service (USFS) recreational cabins located in cutthroat trout or steelhead systems in Southeast Alaska in 1993. The purpose of the survey was to collect information on trout catches, harvest, and effort from USFS cabins in Southeast Alaska. This report presents findings for that survey. The portion of the survey that targeted cutthroat trout Oncorhynchus clarki estimated that anglers spent a total of 21,454 hours to catch 27,948
Northern pike Esox lucius in the Chena River, interior Alaska, were studied for a year from late April 1993, to early May of 1994. A combination of gill nets and electrofishing gear was used to capture 164 pre-spawning northern pike > 299 millimeters fork length in the lower 39 km of the Chena River. The portion of the population of northern pike that was sampled was composed primarily of the Relative Stock Density category of stock- sized fish (300-524 millimeters), with 75% of the sample
Species (Common Name):Humpback Whitefish, Least Cisco
Stock assessment of humpback whitefish Coregonus pidschian and least cisco Coregonus sardinella occurred in a 78.2 km (48.9 miles) section of the Chatanika River, near Fairbanks, Alaska during August 1993. Mark-recapture experiments were utilized to estimate abundance of both species. The investigation was timed to correspond to the upstream spawning migration of both species, and to provide in-season estimates of abundance prior to the onset of a recreational spear fishery. An estimated 13,112
