The fishladder has re-opened for the 2015 season and and the salmon cam has been re-activated. Bare with us while we work out a few kinks in the system.
The underwater camera is located at the base of the fishadder. It provides a rare opportunity to see a variety of species of Yukon fish, including arctic grayling, whitefish, lake trout, longnose sucker, and starting in early August, Chinook salmon. Here is a short video we took of the salmon travelling through the ladder during the 2013 migration.
So far this year, nine salmon have passed through the fishladder. Of that number, six were wild and three of hatchery origin.
In 2014, a total of 1,601 salmon travelled through the ladder. Of that number, 77 percent of the fish were hatchery origin.
