Fall 2019 Subsistence Fishery Monitoring on the Colville River

This report summarizes work to monitor the Colville River subsistence fishery. This fishery is conducted using gillnets each fall after freeze-up in the Niġliq Channel of the Colville River. The monitoring program began in 1985 when the North Slope Borough, in consultation with local fisherman and industry, requested information on the potential impacts to fish health from activities associated with exploration and development of oil and gas near Prudhoe Bay and in the Colville River delta.

Initial surveys in the Colville River delta sought only to obtain estimates of the total subsistence and commercial fishing effort and harvest during the fall under-ice fishery. Over the years, the objectives of the project have evolved to include quantifying temporal trends in fishing effort, harvest results, and assessments of the general health of the fishery. It also includes input from fishers about their perception of the health of the fishery to determine monitoring goals.
