Title: Akalura Lake Sockeye Salmon Restoration

Project Year and Number: 1997: 97251-CLO

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: None

Principal Investigator (PI): Lewis Coggins, Alaska Department of Fish & Game

Assisting Personnel: Nick Sagalkin

Research Location: Kodiak Island

Restoration Category: General Restoration

Injured Resources Addressed: Sockeye Salmon

Abstract: This project will substantiate that the Akalura Lake sockeye salmon stock is naturally recovering from damage caused by the oil spill through continued increased production of sockeye salmon smolts. This will be accomplished if the size of the 1997 smolt emigration is at or above approximately 200,000 fish. Funding will be for a single year of field studies identical to what was conducted during 1996 and a report coupling previous findings (Project /258A-Sockeye Overescapement) with those of the 1997 field studies.
