RRMT 134 - Salmon Hatcheries and Fishery
This course is an introduction to salmon hatcheries and fisheries techniques related to hatchery operations and assessment. Various hatchery practices will be explored, but the emphasis will be on salmon incubation techniques in a groundwater-fed facility. McIntyre Creek Salmon Incubation Project is a Yukon College facility that will serve as a model, and a venue for demonstration of techniques presented in lectures. Although there are no formal laboratory sessions, there will be a mandatory field trip and other course activities. The course is delivered in a blended format, consisting of a combination of lectures and online materials.
