Estimation of the size of the dolly varden charr run at Big Fish River, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Harwood, Lois
Licensed Year(s): 1992

Results suggested that migrant non-spawners may have been deterred by the weir. Consequently, the 1992 attempt to estimate run size used tagging methods at the Cache Creek site. The fish tagged at Cache Creek will be captured at the Fish Hole in the fall in order to produce a...
