Enumeration of juvenile and adult coho salmon at Black Creek, Vancouver Island, 2013: Fs97-4/3116E-PDF

“This report documents the 2013 smolt and adult enumeration programs for Coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) at the Black Creek fence. Both enumeration programs are based on sampling conducted at the permanent fence site located 100 m upstream of tidal influence, about 40 m downstream from Seaview Road in Miracle Beach Provincial Park. A series of projects have been conducted sporadically at this location since 1968 and an uninterrupted data set has been compiled, under the present program, since 1984. In addition to Coho, Black Creek supports populations of coastal cutthroat trout (O. clarkii), and rainbow trout (O. mykiss). Recoveries of coded wire tagged Coho in the escapement are used with catch recoveries and release data to estimate ocean survival and exploitation rates. The utility of the data depends on long-term monitoring of escapements, smolt abundances, survivals, catches, exploitations and escapements. Data from the project, along with other sources, is used to predict Coho returns, ocean survival and migration patterns for the south coast of British Columbia"--Introd., p. 1.
