Least Cisco (Coregonus sardinella)

Least cisco are typically harvested as bycatch in conjunction with whitefish species fisheries targeting humpback whitefish and Bering cisco or even during salmon fisheries. Although not as sought after as other species of whitefish, the least cisco is still an important subsistence fish species for coastal and lower river communities located within drainages of the Colville, Yukon, and Kuskokwim Rivers.
