Metlakatla Drone

For those of you who didn't get the chance to watch the Metlakatla drone, the Metlakatla Fisheries Program, with the help of the Skeena Area Marine Research Collaborative, completed the first stage of an eulachon predator study using drone technology this spring. Metlakatla Fisheries staff launched a small drone from several locations in the Skeena estuary, as well as from the banks of the Skeena River, in order to search for predators such as seals, sea lions, eagles and seagulls. The aerial view that the drone provided will prove to be a valuable tool for a variety of natural resource management work in Metlakatla's future.
