Research Location: Alaska Peninsula

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Subsistence

Abstract: Subsistence users from the Alaska Peninsula Native Village of Perryville have noted significant declines in the coho salmon run in the nearby Kametolook River since the oil spill. Criminal settlement funds were used in FY 96 to determine what method would best restore the river's coho salmon stock to historic levels. This project will provide funding through FY 02 for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to try conservative and safe restoration methods. In 1997, two instream incubation boxes were installed in the upper reach of the Kametolook River. In 1998, 1999, and 2000 holding pens were also used. Due to continual low escapement of coho into the Kametolook River system, the project will be unable to achieve the goal of restoration within two life cycles of the fish. In FY 02, the project will expand to investigate nearby coho stocks as potential brood sources for rehabilitation of the Kametolook coho run.
