Watmough Bight
Each summer Kwiaht works with volunteers to monitor the marine food web and diet of juvenile Chinook salmon at Watmough Bight. Everyone is welcome to come help pull the net, sort fish, and see what the Chinook have been eating (which is accomplished using non-lethal gastric lavage). This long-term monitoring project is part of a network of regional research. Please be Covid-safe, and dress for the weather and water and slimy fish!
