    In Northwest North America, the average chinook size is 30 lbs. and in other areas closer to The largest recorded commercial catch was a lb. chinook in in Alaska. The sport record is a 97 lb. fish caught in the Kenai River in Alaska. Chinook transported to the Great Lakes are much smaller on average and the record is less than 50 lbs. In addition, there are now naturally reproduced Chinook salmon that add to the harvest. The bottom line is that Chinook salmon management is now more complex. The main factor during the mids was that Chinook salmon experienced a noticeable disease epizootic (Bacterial Kidney Disease) and a significant decline in abundance in

    Monitoring will be critical to the management of these restoration programs. As returns increase to secure levels, enhancement programs will be phased out. Intentional harvest of Chinook salmon will not occur until after population numbers return to secure levels. Complete Restoration Plan (page PDF). Chinook Salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha Sometimes referred to as “king” salmon, chinook are the largest salmon species. Adult fish can grow to over four feet in length. Their typical weight is 10 – 45 lbs., with a record of lbs. The chinook has a greenish back, .

    NMFS recognized Sacramento River winter chinook salmon as a "distinct population segment" under the ESA (NMFS ). In reviewing the biological and ecological information concerning west coast chinook salmon, the Biological Review Team (BRT) identified 11 additional ESUs for chinook salmon from Washington, Oregon, and California. Chinook salmon specifically support many different user groups in Southeast Alaska. These valuable industries include, a commercial fishery, personal/subsistence use, and a sport fishery.
