The use (and misuse) of archaeological salmon data to infer historical abundance in North America with a focus on New England

Abstract Information about historical animal or plant abundance often either explicitly or implicitly informs current conservation practice. If it can be shown that an organism was not historically abundant in a region, its conservation importance may be downgraded. In contrast to abundant archaeological support for historic importance of salmon in the Pacific Northwest, historic abundance of Atlantic salmon in New England has been called into question based on the rarity of salmon bones in… 
Collaboration between Atlantic and Pacific salmon biologists to enhance recovery of endangered salmon in North America
The goal was to help establish new collaborations between these highly productive research communities by teaming up Atlantic and Pacific salmon biologists by holding a ‘‘Teaming Up’’ symposium that was held at the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Fisheries Society.

Abstract Through the end of the eighteenth century, Lake Ontario had a large population of Atlantic salmon. However, the salmon population declined precipitously in the first half of the nineteenth

Abstract This paper examines the archaeology of salmon fishing in Japan, mostly during the Jomon period. The starting point is Sugao Yamanouchi's ‘salmon/trout theory’, which suggested that the

Archaeologists have long debated the importance of salmon resources in the development of large, semisedentary winter villages and ranked societies among native peoples of the eastern North Pacific.
Overview of the status of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) in the North Atlantic and trends in marine mortality
Since the early 1980s, the ICES Working Group on North Atlantic Salmon has collated and interpreted catch data, exchanged information on research initiatives, and provided advice to managers in
Resource Intensification and Resource Depression in the Pacific Northwest of North America: A Zooarchaeological Review
In the Pacific Northwest of North America, researchers routinely suggest changes in human use of animals explain hunter-gatherer organizational changes and development of cultural complexity. For
The role of bone density in structuring prehistoric salmon bone assemblages
Abstract Archaeologists working in north-western North America often suggest that the low frequency of salmon cranial elements and abundance of vertebrae in prehistoric deposits reflects the cultural
Why aren't there more Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)?
Salmon researchers and managers should not look for a single culprit in declining numbers of salmon, but rather, seek solutions through rigorous data gathering and testing of multiple effects integrated across space and time.
Long-term changes in migration timing of adult Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) at the southern edge of the species distribution
This work examined 23 years of migration timing data collected at two capture locations in the Connecticut River drainage and found that both dates of first capture and median capture dates have shifted significantly earlier, and quantified changes in migration timing of more northerly stocks.
