Summary

Gillnet catch data from the lower Yukon River, AK, collected from 1990 to 2003 in conjunction with a sonar study to estimate the abundance of migrating fish, were assembled. The full dataset contained 92,029 records with complete species and length information. A subset of data for the eight most prevalent groups of fish was selected for the estimation of net selectivity. The reduced dataset contained 89,984 records for Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), summer and fall runs of chum salmon (O. keta), coho salmon (O. kisutch), pink salmon (O. gorbuscha), humpback whitefish (Coregonus pidschian), broad whitefish (C. nasus), and various cisco (Coregonus) species.
