Description:

The Kasilof River sockeye salmon sonar project is located approximately 8 river miles upstream from the river mouth, just upstream of the Sterling Highway bridge. Sockeye salmon travel time to this site from Cook Inlet ranges from approximately 12-hours to 36-hours.The sockeye salmon sonar enumeration process uses a fish wheel to determine the proportions and counts of pink, coho, and chum salmon each day.

Beginning in 2011, ADF&G will be counting escapement at in the Kasilof River using DIDSON rather than the old Bendix sonar. To provide for comparison of counts among years, all historical escapement counts in this database have been converted from Bendix to DIDSON-equivalent units.

Telephone counts are available at 907 262-9097.

More information about the sonar is located Kasilof River sonar/weir site external link.

Biological Escapement Goal for Sockeye in 2020: 140,000 - 320,000 (Graphed above)
Optimal Escapement Goal for Sockeye: 140,000 - 370,000
