Age, growth and radiometric age validation of a deep-sea, habitat-forming gorgonian (Primnoa resedaeformis) from the Gulf of Alaska
Growth rates suggest that the fishery habitat created by red tree coral is extremely vulnerable to bottom fishing activities and may take over 100 years to recover. Expand
Maximum Ages of Groundfishes in Waters off Alaska and British Columbia and Considerations of Age Determination
The longevity in some groundfish species in the eastern North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea is remark­ able. Maximum ages of some species are relatively young: walleye pollock and lingcod are 28 andExpand
Age validation of quillback rockfish (Sebastes maliger) using bomb radiocarbon
Rockfishes (Sebastes spp.) support one of the most economically important fisheries of the Pacific Northwest and it is essential for sus- tainable management that age esti- mation procedures beExpand
Radiometric age validation of the yelloweye rockfish (Sebastes ruberrimus) from southeastern Alaska
etsilaunk, . M.l Abstract. The yelloweye rockfish (Sebastes ruberrimus), a dominant component of an important deep-water rockfish fishery of the Gulf of Alaska, is thought to be long-lived with anExpand
Technical Notes: A Hatchery Water‐Heating System and its Application to 100% Thermal Marking of Incubating Salmon
Abstract The components and general operation of a system for heating incubation water for thermal marking of salmon otoliths are presented. The system was operated at the Gastineau Salmon HatcheryExpand
Thermal Mark Technology for Inseason Fisheries Management: A Case Study
Effective management of wild and hatchery salmon stocks in Alaska requires rapid and accurate determination of each component in commercial mixed stock catches. Marking 100% of the hatchery fish withExpand
This work aims to provide an information access system for all unpublished divisional reports and to accommodate timely reporting of recently collected information, reports in this series undergo only limited internal review and may contain preliminary data. Expand
Distribution and Use of Shallow-Water Habitats by Pacific Sand Lances in Southeastern Alaska
Abstract The Pacific sand lance Ammodytes hexapterus is an important prey species, but little is known about its distribution and habitat use, especially among early life stages in southeasternExpand
Origin of juvenile Pacific salmon recovered from coastal southeastern Alaska identified by otolith thermal marks and coded wire tags
Abstract First ocean-year juvenile Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) in the marine waters of southeastern Alaska were examined for origin identification in the summers of 1993–1997. Over 31,000Expand
Geographic Origin of High-Seas Chum Salmon Determined by Genetic and Thermal Otolith Markers
Genetic stock identification (GSI) and thermal otolith marking techniques were used for determining the stock origin of chum salmon (Oncorhynchus ketal caught in two offshore transects (165°W andExpand
