Angoon gets Federal Funding for a Sockeye weir on the Kanalku Lake

A project near Angoon is among a number approved by the Federal Subsistence Board for its Subsistence Fisheries Monitoring Plan.

It will count sockeye salmon escapement into Kanalku Lake near the Southeast village, through the use of a weir.

The lake is one of several sockeye salmon systems in Chatham Strait. The Federal Subsistence Board says information on escapement is needed to manage both the subsistence and commercial fisheries.

The plan covers 34 projects and costs $3 point 5 Million.
