Arctic Char (Salvelinus alpinus)

Harvest of Arctic char is monitored by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game via surveys of anglers as well as periodic community-based surveys among subsistence users. Annual sport catch, effort and harvest data is captured by the Division of Sport Fish through the Alaska Sport Fishing Harvest Survey. The USFWS, Office of Subsistence Management (OSM) also funds monitoring studies that may include Arctic char.

Relatively little research on life history or population trends of Arctic char in Alaska is currently being conducted by ADF&G at present, largely due to their isolated nature (generally, remote lakes) and relatively low fishing pressure on Arctic char stocks throughout their range.
