We used information about hatchery rearing and release practices for 173 releases of age 0+ smolts between 1982 and 2012, as well as time series of early marine prey biomass and predator abundance/biomass, to investigate the biological basis of agespecific return variability of chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) from the Robertson Creek Hatchery.
