Fairbanks fishery resources progress reports 1985

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus), Arctic cisco (Coregonus autumnalis), fourhorn sculpin (Myoxocephalus quadricornis) and Arctic flounder (Liopsetta glacialis) were the major fish species captured by fyke nets in Beaufort Lagoon, Alaska from July 7 to August 9, 1985. Arctic char ranged from 68 to 817 mm fork length and exhibited a bi-modal length frequency distribution. Juvenile char in the 151-200 mm length group comprised 19% of those captured and measured. These were mostly age 3 year smolts. Adult char between 400 and 500 mm comprised 30% of those captured and measured. These lengths correspond to ages 6 to 9 years. Eighty percent of the Arctic char were captured at the inside barrier island station. Most of these were moving in a westerly direction. Two periods of char abundance were observed. The first occurred in early July; 92% of the char were ~ 350 mm. The second peak occurred after July 30. Forty-five percent of these char were less than 350 mm fork length. In the 1985 sampling period 1,262 Arctic char were tagged with Floy anchor tags. Recapture information is presented. Arctic cisco ranged from 90 to 493 mm in length. Most (72%) were in the length group 351 to 400 mm; which corresponds to ages 7-13 years. Ninety percent of the Arctic cisco were captured at the inside barrier island station and 70% of these fish were moving in a westerly direction. Peak movement of cisco in Beaufort Lagoon occurred in early and mid-July. Arctic cisco captured in Beaufort Lagoon were longer than those reported from the Prudhoe Bay area.
