Trends in Abundance and Biological Characteristics of Chum Salmon

An international cooperative salmon survey by the North Pacific Anadromous Fish Commission may elucidate the mechanisms underlying the relation between trends in abundance and biological characteristics of chum salmon and ships among these trends.

Population dynamics of Japanese pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha): are recent increases explained by hatchery programs or climatic variations?

It is concluded that the recent catch increases of Japanese pink salmon could be largely explained by climate change, with increased hatchery releases having little effect.

Trends in Abundance and Size of Coho Salmon in the Pacific Rim

In the early 1960s, average Pacific-wide landings of coho salmon reached a stable level of over 12 million fish that persisted for 3 decades, followed by a sharp decrease to under 6 million fish in

Shark aggregation in coastal waters of British Columbia

A concentration of pelagic sharks was observed in an area of western Queen Charlotte Sound, British Columbia, during systematic shipboard line-transect surveys conducted (2004 to 2006) for marine

Magnitude and Trends in Abundance of Hatchery and Wild Pink Salmon, Chum Salmon, and Sockeye Salmon in the North Pacific Ocean

The large and increasing abundances of hatchery salmon have important management implications in terms of density-dependent processes and conservation of wild salmon populations; management agencies should improve estimates ofHatchery salmon abundance in harvests and on the spawning grounds.

Stock-Specific Distribution and Abundance of Immature Chinook Salmon in the Western Bering Sea in Summer and Fall 2002-2004

Seasonal stock-specific distribution and abundance of immature sockeye salmon ( Oncorhynchus nerka) in the western Bering Sea in summer 2003 and fall 2002-2004 were determined using scale pattern

Increase in maturation size after the closure of a high seas gillnet fishery on hatchery-reared chum salmon Oncorhynchus keta

Natural selection and phenotypic plasticity induced by environmental changes could contribute to the increases in L50 after the relaxation of fishing pressure in chum salmon populations in Hokkaido, Japan.

Variation in age and size at maturity of Lake Clark, Alaska sockeye salmon

Salmon returning to Lake Clark, Alaska are a valuable subsistence, commercial and ecological resource, and are an important component of the larger Kvichak River escapement. Average escapement to the
