Anadromous fishes migrate to sea, apparently to take advantage of growing conditions, and return to fresh water to spawn. [] Key Result The timing of migration varied among populations and was primarily related to temperature regime during migration and the timing of spawning. When temperatures were moderate (<19°C), sockeye salmon tended to migrate to the vicinity of the spawning grounds about 1 month prior to spawning, regardless of the length of the freshwater migra...

The paradox of “premature migration” by adult anadromous salmonid fishes: patterns and hypotheses

TLDR
This work first review migration in salmonids and finds great variation in timing patterns among and within species, relative to the timing of reproduction, and proposes two hypotheses to explain it.

Migration Trends of Sockeye Salmon at the Northern Edge of Their Distribution

AbstractClimate change is affecting arctic and subarctic ecosystems, and anadromous fish such as Pacific salmon Oncorhynchus spp. are particularly susceptible due to the physiological challenge of

Migration Timing of Adult Chinook Salmon into the Togiak River, Alaska, Watershed: Is There Evidence for Stock Structure?

TLDR
This study examined the variation in migration timing of adult Chinook Salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha within the Togiak River system of southwest Alaska to determine whether fish that spawned in different habitats migrated into freshwater from the ocean at different times.

Effect of water temperature, timing, physiological condition and lake thermal refugia on success of migrating adult Sockeye salmon

I related survival of adult Weaver Creek sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) to water temperature, migration timing, physiological condition, and lake residence in the lower Fraser River and Harrison

Thermal regime, predation danger and the early marine exit of sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka.

TLDR
The data presented here appear inconsistent with thermal avoidance as an explanation for the early marine exit timing in Copper Creek and in three other populations on the Haida Gwaii Archipelago with early marineexit.

Migration Strategies of Adult Chinook Salmon Runs in Response to Diverse Environmental Conditions in the Klamath River Basin

Abstract Biotelemetry and body temperature records of 130 adult Chinook salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha tagged over multiple years were used to investigate migration behaviors in response to diverse

Availability of holding habitat in lakes and rivers affects the incidence of spring (premature) upriver migration by Atlantic salmon

Premature migration is a key component of the biocomplexity of anadromous fishes, yet remains poorly understood. Many Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) populations leave the ocean in spring, months prior

Artificial selection on reproductive timing in hatchery salmon drives a phenological shift and potential maladaptation to climate change

TLDR
The lower reproductive success of early spawners and relatively low survival of early emerging juveniles observed in recent years suggest that artificial and natural selection are acting in opposite directions and the fitness costs of early spawning may be exacerbated by future warming; thus, the artificially advanced phenology could reduce the population’s productivity.

Dynamic in-lake spawning migrations by female sockeye salmon

Abstract –  Precise homing by salmon to natal habitats is considered the primary mechanism in the evolution of population-specific traits, yet few studies have focused on this final phase of their

Influences of spawning timing, water temperature, and climatic warming on early life history phenology in western Alaska sockeye salmon

TLDR
An empirical model was applied to predict hatching and emergence timing for 25 western Alaska sockeye salmon populations in four lake-nursery systems to explore current patterns and potential responses of early life history phenology to warming water temperatures.

Environmental Changes Affecting the Migratory Timing of American Shad and Sockeye Salmon

TLDR
It is hypothesized that American shad and sockeye salmon may have evolved a migratory pattern that allows greater behavioral response to environmental fluctuations than sockeye Salmon, which spawn in distant lo- cations many months after their upriver migration.

Biological characteristics and population status of anadromous salmon in southeast Alaska.

TLDR
Coho salmon are a valuable resource in the commercial, sport, and subsistence fisheries of southeast Alaska and the availability of suitable rearing habitat is considered to be the limiting factor for most coho salmon populations.

Migration and Survival of Redfish Lake, Idaho, Sockeye Salmon, Oncorhynchus nerka

Abstract Most adult sockeye salmon returning to Redfish Lake had spent two years in the ocean. Survival from smolt to returning adult at the lake ranged from 0.14 to 1.83%. The sex-ratio was nearly

Latitudinal Differences in Energy Allocation and Use During the Freshwater Migrations of American Shad (Alosa sapidissima) and Their Life History Consequences

TLDR
Shad in the three populations studied differed in the degree of development of the gonads at river entry, in the absolute and relative energy allocation to reproductive products vs. migration, and in the extent of total energy depletion during the migration.

Water temperature and the migrations of American shad

TLDR
This paper analyzes the effect of water temperature on the movements of shad in streams and in the ocean and traces the relationship of migrations of American shad to temperature of the water to Dr. Elton Sette.

TIME OF MIGRATION AND AGE GROUP STRUCTURE OF SOCKEYE SALMON (ONCORHYNCHUS NERKA) SPAWNING POPULATIONS IN THE NAKNEK RIVER SYSTEM, ALASKA 1

TLDR
Daily tagging on the Naknek River and subsequent tag recovery on the spawning grounds showed that segregation of individual spawning populations by time of occurrence in the NakNEk run is limited, and there was a more or less complete intermingling of most spawning.

EVOLUTION OF TEMPORAL ISOLATION IN THE WILD: GENETIC DIVERGENCE IN TIMING OF MIGRATION AND BREEDING BY INTRODUCED CHINOOK SALMON POPULATIONS

TLDR
It appears that spawning time may not only evolve during the initial phases of divergence, but it may play an important role in accelerating divergence in other traits.

Temperature, flow, and the migration of adult sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) in the Columbia River

TLDR
The travel rate between McNary and Rock Island dams did not change from 1955 to 1994, despite a decrease in estimated water velocity from 85 to 23 km/day, and both travel rate and arrival date were correlated with temperature increases and flow decreases at McNary during that period.

Latitudinal Variation in Reproductive Characteristics of American Shad (Alosa sapidissima): Evidence for Population Specific Life History Strategies in Fish

TLDR
The reproductive characteristics of five populations of American shad on the Atlantic coast were studied and the pattern of reproductive responses of shad to the thermal environment of the natal river is consistent with existing ecological theory concerning the evolution of reproductive strategies.

Migratory Timing of Upper Copper River Sockeye Salmon Stocks and Its Implications for the Regulation of the Commercial Fishery

Abstract Migratory timing of 15 sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) stocks in the upper Copper River, Alaska, was determined from a tag and recapture project conducted between 1967 and 1972. Time
