Chilkoot Weir

Copyright Barbara Samuelson 1997

This is the salmon weir set up at the Chilkoot River just outside the city of Haines, Alaska. The Department of Fish and Game set the weir up to count the salmon as they swam upstream. This fellow stayed there all day netting the salmon as they were funneled into the open spot in the weir, measured and weighed them, and flung them back into the river. (SEE BELOW)
