The DIDSON sonar estimates will be updated twice weekly. The daily estimates represent king salmon of all age and size classes and is expanded by 1.28 to account for late-run king salmon passing outside of the ensonified zone. This DIDSON sonar estimate is used to measure total run abundance relative to the late-run king salmon sustainable escapement goal of 15,000–30,000 fish. To view daily estimates about king salmon passage go to the Indices of king salmon abundance tab which is updated as data becomes available. The inseason run summary tab will provide information about king salmon passage at the mile 8.6 DIDSON sonar site external link, netting project, creel survey, water conditions and management actions twice each week. Information about the status of the run and inseason management actions are also available by telephone at (907) 262-9097.
