This project is restoring the Moose Creek Chinook salmon population which has declined in the last century. In mid-summer, small numbers of adult Chinook salmon on Moose Creek are captured; the salmon eggs are fertilized and then incubated in a moist air incubation system located in our Environmental Stewardship Department Office. The incubation period coincides with the late summer and early autumn seasonal flood events and removes the eggs from potential injury of the floods. Around early October the eggs are thermally marked and then planted in natural stream gravels at upstream locations on Moose Creek to complete their development. This is a short-term “jump start” to the Chinook salmon population on Moose Creek, which will conclude after 5 years (approximately one generation cycle).
