Miawpukek Aquaculture Escapee Monitoring (MAEM) 2016

Recipient: Miawpukek First Nation
Approved Amount: $34,873
Year Approved: 2016

Miawpukek First Nation (MFN) is proposing to sample all salmon that enters Little River to determine if they are of aquaculture origin or are carrying any disease. A counting fence will be in place in Little River in early April 2016 and will remain there until early freeze up, around late October 2016. All fish migrating upstream will be enumerated and identified. All salmon encountered will be scale sampled and fin clipped. All other farm fish species will also be recorded, sampled and removed from the system.
