Description: The DIDSON (sonar) is used to estimate passage of late-run sockeye salmon at river mile 19 of the Kenai River. The department manages Kenai River late-run sockeye salmon to achieve a sustainable escapement goal (SEG) of 700,000–1,200,000 late-run sockeye salmon, and also follows inriver management targets established by the Alaska Board of Fisheries. The primary inseason management target for late-run Kenai River sockeye salmon is the inriver goal. These inriver goals vary year to year depending on the estimated run size in the Kenai River. In 2018 the inriver goal is now 900,000–1,100,000 late-run sockeye salmon.
