Puntledge Summer Chinook Parentage‐Based Tagging Study: Year 3
This project will use genetic methods, known as parentage‐based tagging, to identify individual summer‐run Chinook Salmon back to parental crosses (both in the hatchery and in the wild) to study the effects of parental Chinook return migration time and bacterial kidney disease (BKD) status on their progeny. The project will provide information to guide the efforts of the K’omoks First Nation in restoring the salmon populations in Puntledge River impacted by hydro development.
