A microsatellite baseline incorporating over 53,000 chum salmon (Oncorhynchus keta) sampled from over 380 locations in Asia and North America was applied to estimate stock composition in mixed-stock fishery samples from the Gulf of Alaska. High resolution of these mixed-stock samples was possible, with 1 reporting group developed for Korean populations, 7(More)

The population dynamics of chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) from the Cowichan River on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada are used by the Pacific Salmon Commission as an index of the general state of chinook salmon coast wide. In recent years the production declined to very low levels despite the use of a hatchery that was intended to(More)
Two small-sized and two large-sized male pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) were mated to each of four females, producing eight families sired by small males and eight sired by large males. The juveniles were reared for 500 d after fry emergence. Juvenile weight in the two male size classes was similar until the spring of the year of maturity, when(More)
Juvenile sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka that were reared and smolted in laboratory conditions were found to produce otolith daily increments, as well as a consistently visible marine-entry check formed during their transition to salt water. Field-collected O. nerka post-smolts of an equivalent age also displayed visible checks; however, microchemistry(More)
