Title: Improved Salmon Escapement Enumeration Using Remote Video and Time-Lapse Recording Technology

Project Year and Number: 2001: 01366-CLO

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2000: 00366, 1999: 99366

Principal Investigator (PI): Ted Otis, Alaska Department of Fish & Game

Assisting Personnel: Mark Dickson

Research Location: Lower Cook Inlet

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon , Sockeye Salmon

Abstract: Salmon resources and services within the spill area, and particularly within Prince William Sound, were injured by the oil spill and have not fully recovered. To monitor the recovery of salmon stocks in the spill area and improve escapement information used to set spawning escapement goals, this project will develop remote video and time-lapse recording technology for enumerating salmon escapement. Remote video has the potential to provide accurate, archivable documentation of salmon escapements well beyond the capacity of aerial survey indices, and well below the cost of weir and sonar projects. Videotapes can be retrieved and reviewed weekly to facilitate in-season management of commercial fisheries. Funding in FY 01 is for preparation of a final report and possibly a publication.
