Final estimates of harvests and escapements of Pacific salmon returning to the transboundary Stikine, Taku, and Alsek rivers in 2018 are presented and compared with historical patterns. Average, unless defined otherwise, refers to the most recent 10-year average (2008–2017). Relevant information pertaining to the management of appropriate U.S. and Canadian fisheries is presented and the use of in season management models is discussed. Preliminary results from Transboundary sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) enhancement projects are also reviewed.
