Summary

Eight coregonine species have been documented in the Yukon River drainage. They include inconnu Stenodus leucichthys, broad whitefish Coregonus nasus, humpback whitefish C. pidschian, Alaska whitefish C. nelsonii, least cisco C. sardinella, Bering cisco C. laurettae, round whitefish Prosopium cylindracium, and pygmy whitefish P. coulterii. Personal use, sport, and commercial fisheries within the drainage target several of these species. Some species are capable of anadromous life histories, as evidenced by their presence in estuaries, yet few studies have investigated the upstream migrations of anadromous components of these populations. Only inconnu migrations have been previously examined in the Yukon River drainage. We investigated [...]
