Between Aug. 7-25, the Canadian Wildlife Federation will be gill netting Chinook salmon in the Yukon River (between Lake Laberge and the Whitehorse Rapids Dam) as part of a study to determine if there are effects to upstream migration of spawning salmon from the dam.

The CWF is only collecting and tagging 10 fish during this time.

The organization is also reaching out to traditional fish harvesters to let them know of the study.
