Kluatantan River Steelhead: Summary of Current Content Data and Status Review, 1997

, , , , ,


This report summarizes the stock status, and current data available on, the Kluatantan River steelhead (Oncorhynchis mykiss) population. Total angler effort for steelhead, total catch of steelhead, and catch per unit effort trends on the Kluatantan River are summarized from the Steelhead Harvest Analysis database and from the Angling Guide Management System database. There is very little information available on the steelhead population utilizing the Kluatantan River, but the population size is very small, and the biology of the fish is likely similar to that of steelhead in the Sustut River due to close geographical proximity of the two watersheds. Management and future study recommendations are made to help in further study programs in the watershed.
