This summer, Unalaska collected information on the sockeye salmon run for McLees Lake at Cape Wislow. The data is used to gauge the strength of the run and to establish regulations for subsistence fishing. 

 

After 17 years of monitoring the salmon run there, in 2018 and 2019 the Alaska Department of Fish and Game was unable to secure funding for the weir.
