New dual-frequency sub-array deployed

In collaboration with Dr Scott Hinch (UBC), Kintama has rolled out a 69/180 KHz dual frequency sub-array in the Fraser River, replacing our previous monitoring 69 KHz telemetry array. The system will be used to simultaneously measure the survival of V7 (69 KHz) and V6 (180 KHz) acoustically tagged Chilko Lake sockeye smolts and allowing a comparison of survival of smolts below the previous size threshold of 130mm for V7 tags. Funding for this project is funding provided by the Pacific Salmon Foundation
