Stock-Structured Distribution of Western Alaska and Yukon Juvenile Chinook Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) from United States BASIS Surveys, 2002-2007

  title={Stock-Structured Distribution of Western Alaska and Yukon Juvenile Chinook Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) from United States BASIS Surveys, 2002-2007},
  author={James M. Murphy and William David Templin and James E. Seeb and Ted Stevens},
We describe migratory patterns of western Alaska and Yukon Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) using stock-structured distribution data from United States Bering-Aleutian Salmon International Surveys (BASIS), 2002-2007. Juvenile Chinook salmon were distributed within water depths less than 50 m and their highest densities were found close to river mouths of primary Chinook salmon-producing rivers in the eastern Bering Sea (Yukon, Kuskokwim, and Nushagak rivers) through their first summer… Expand

Changing Growth and Maturity in Western Alaskan Chinook Salmon, Oncorhynchus tshawytscha, Brood Years 1975–2005
Changing growth and maturity in the females of two populations of western Alaskan Chinook salmon, the Andreafsky River (Yukon River drainage) and the Kogrukluk River (Kuskokwim River drainage), using scales collected over 31 brood years are investigated. Expand
Single-nucleotide polymorphisms reveal distribution and migration of Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) in the Bering Sea and North Pacific Ocean
We genotyped Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) from the Bering Sea and North Pacific Ocean for 43 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) to investigate seasonal distribution and migrationExpand
Juvenile Chinook Salmon abundance in the northern Bering Sea: Implications for future returns and fisheries in the Yukon River
Abstract Juvenile Chinook Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) abundance in the northern Bering Sea is used to provide insight into future returns and fisheries in the Yukon River. The status of YukonExpand
Differential north–south response of juvenile Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) marine growth to ecosystem change in the eastern Bering Sea, 1974–2010
Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha, Salmonidae) returns to western Alaska were historically high and variable but recently reached record lows. Understanding the differential influence ofExpand
Canadian‐Origin Chinook Salmon Rearing in Nonnatal U.S. Tributary Streams of the Yukon River, Alaska
Chinook salmon oncorhynchus tshawytscha are described as having a “stream-type” life history strategy, and typically feed and grow in tributary streams of the Yukon River throughout their first summer, overwinter in freshwater, and usually leave their rearing areas for marine waters during the second spring or summer.

Determinants of life history variability in the chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) of Western Alaska
Chinook Salmon from western Alaska have experienced recent declines in abundance, size, and age at maturity. Declines have led to hardships for the region’s dependent subsistence and commercialExpand
Continental-scale variability in the feeding ecology of juvenile Chinook salmon along the coastal Northeast Pacific Ocean
Trophic interactions within and among species vary widely across spatial scales and species’ ontogeny. However, the drivers and implications of this variability are not well understood. JuvenileExpand
Stock-Specific Size of Juvenile Sockeye Salmon in British Columbia Waters and the Gulf of Alaska
AbstractThe variation at 14 microsatellites was analyzed for 10,500 juvenile Sockeye Salmon Oncorhynchus nerka obtained from coastal British Columbia and Gulf of Alaska surveys during 1996–2011. AExpand
Evidence that Marine Temperatures Influence Growth and Maturation of Western Alaskan Chinook Salmon
AbstractChinook Salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha from western Alaska have experienced recent declines in abundance, size, and age at maturity. Declines have led to hardships for the region’sExpand
Single-Nucleotide Polymorphic Genotypes Reveal Patterns of Early Juvenile Migration of Sockeye Salmon in the Eastern Bering Sea
Abstract We estimate patterns of nearshore migration in the eastern Bering Sea for out-migrating Bristol Bay sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka in their first year at sea. Over 3,000 juveniles wereExpand


Distribution , Migration Pathways , and Size of Western Alaska Juvenile Salmon Along the Eastern Bering Sea Shelf
The size, condition, distribution, and migration pathways of juvenile Pacific salmon (pink, chum, sockeye, coho, and Chinook salmon) were examined along the eastern Bering Sea shelf during AugustExpand
Seasonal Habitat Use and Early Marine Ecology of Juvenile Pacific Salmon in Southeastern Alaska
Habitat use and early marine ecology of juvenile (age-.O) Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) were studied monthly at inshore, strait, and coastal habitats along a seaward migration corridor inExpand
Juvenile Pink and Chum Salmon Distribution, Diet, and Growth in the Northern Bering and Chukchi Seas
Loss of non-seasonal sea ice and a general warming trend in the Bering Sea has altered the composition, distribution, and abundance of marine organisms inhabiting the region. Juvenile pinkExpand
Migration of Pacific Rim Chum Salmon on the High Seas: Insights from Genetic Data
Wild stocks of chum salmon, Oncorhynchus keta, have experienced recent declines in some areas of their range. Also, the release of hatchery chum salmon has escalated to nearly three billion fishExpand
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
Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms Provide Rapid and Accurate Estimates of the Proportions of U.S. and Canadian Chinook Salmon Caught in Yukon River Fisheries
Simulations and analyses of known fish suggest that the SNP baseline can be analyzed and the use of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers that combine the ease of sampling and large potential number of loci of other DNA markers with universally transportable data are presented. Expand

Plasticity of smolting in spring chinook salmon: relation to growth and insulin‐like growth factor‐I
The results demonstrate that smolting is plastic in spring chinook salmon, occurring in the autumn or the spring, and indicate a relationship between growth, an endocrine growth factor and smolt, suggesting a mechanistic link between developmental plasticity and the environment mediated by the endocrine system.
