The fishladder is now closed for the 2013 season and and the salmon cam has been de-activated.
When it is operating (from June to the beginning of September) 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.
In 2013, a total of 1,139 salmon travelled through the fishladder. That is slightly more than in 2012, when 1,037 salmon passed through the ladder.
The 2013 breakdown is as follows:
Wild Male = 149
Wild Female= 226
Hatchery Males = 412
Hatcher Females = 352
