The Copper River salmon runs are all carefully managed for long-term sustainability by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G). ADF&G monitors sonar counters and fish wheels at several points along the Copper River and counts each salmon heading up the river to ensure an adequate number migrate to spawning grounds to reproduce each year. ADF&G biologists also perform aerial surveys of fishing grounds to count the number of migrating fish throughout the season.
