Tracking Juvenile Cowichan River Chinook

Tracking juvenile Cowichan River Chinook”

In this talk, Kevin Pellett from Fisheries and Oceans Canada will present results from a five-year juvenile Chinook tagging project.   Over 65,000 PIT (Passive Integrated Transponder or RFID) tags were deployed in fresh and salt water habitats to gain insights into survival.   Many interactions with other wildlife species were discovered along the way which has increased our understanding of how this species interacts with its environment.
