Abstract: Prior to the 1964 earthquake, Montague Island streams accounted for nearly 8% of the total chum salmon production in PWS. Habitat alterations caused by the uplift, combined with a number of environmental and man-induced factors, led to the virtual extinction of chums on the island. Many of the historic chum salmon producing streams on Montague Island were moderately to lightly oiled by the oil spill. This project will reestablish chum salmon on Montague Island and rehabilitate 10 miles of stream habitat for fish and wild life. In addition, at least one artificial spawning channel will be created.
