The purpose of this project is to evaluate freshwater and marine survival of Kodiak Regional Aquaculture Association’s (KRAA) sockeye stocked Spiridon Lake and their returns to Telrod Cove. The locations are accessible by floatplane from the City of Kodiak and personnel will remain on-site for the duration of the project. Communication will be by satellite phone and inReach to relay data updates, communicate about resupply trips, and for crew welfare checks. Normal phone or wifi reception is not available. The majority of time will be spent outdoors with extended exposure to cold, sun, rain, bugs, bears, and at times working in swift water. All camp supplies including groceries will be flown in every 2-3 weeks and carried by frame pack and cart to the job site. Benefits of the area are incredible outdoor recreation in a remote wilderness setting. KRAA will provide safety training (bear, firearm) and review sampling procedures prior to deployment. KRAA will provide transportation to/from the field site, housing, food, and chest waders for the project duration. A shared bunkhouse in the town of Kodiak is provided for transition between start/end dates. All personal clothing/gear is provided by the candidate.
