The goal of this project is to understand the reasons for the disappearance of adult grayling from the Swede Johnson Creek/wetlands near the Alaska Highway. Once a source of pride in the community, the fishery at this location has declined to point where no adult fish have been captured for several years. This project will collect information which will help determine the reasons for this decline and, as appropriate, set the stage for restoration/enhancement of the habitat/stock with the goal of allowing future generations to enjoy the same important fishery that their grandfathers enjoyed.
