Life history traits reflect interactions between evolutionary lineage and environmental conditions. Translocations of populations to new environments, and changes in their natal environment, provide insights into the factors controlling life history. For example, the trade-off between egg size and egg number is a well-studied adaptation in fishes, and especially salmon and trout. We used existing and new data on this tradeoff in anadromous sockeye salmon, Oncorhynchus nerka, and the non… 
Recovery of Sockeye Salmon in the Elwha River, Washington, after Dam Removal: Dependence of Smolt Production on the Resumption of Anadromy by Landlocked Kokanee
TLDR
The objective was to evaluate the extent to which estimates of Sockeye Salmon smolt production and recovery are sensitive to the resumption of anadromy by kokanee after dam removal.

Genotypic and Phenotypic Divergence of Sockeye Salmon in New Zealand from Their Ancestral British Columbia Populations
TLDR
Embryos of sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka were transplanted from Shuswap Lake, British Columbia, to tributaries of Lake Ohau in the South Island of New Zealand in 1901, giving rise to a self-sustaining freshwater resident population that spawns primarily in Larch Stream north ofLake Ohau.
Genetic Differences in the Early Development and Growth of Sympatric Sockeye Salmon and Kokanee (Oncorhynchus nerka), and their Hybrids
TLDR
Pure and reciprocal crosses of Shuswap River sockeye and kokanee under controlled hatchery conditions raised to investigate whether genetic differences are maintained by selection against -hybrid" progeny.

TLDR
It is concluded that divergence has occurred in sympatry and potential isolating mechanisms are examined to confirm that sockeye and kokanee exist as reproductively isolated populations.
Sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) return after an absence of nearly 90 years: A case of reversion to anadromy
We document the recent reappearance of anadromous sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) that were thought to have been extirpated by the construction of hydroelectric dams on the Coquitlam and Alouette
Evolution of chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) populations in New Zealand: pattern, rate, and process.
TLDR
It is suggested that in addition to genetic divergence resulting from random founder effects, divergence may also arise during the very early stages of colonization when the original colonists are a non-random, pre-adapted subset of the source population.
Genetic Inventory of Anadromous Pacific Salmonids of the Elwha River Prior to Dam Removal
TLDR
The use of these data as a genetic ruler to manage and monitor the genetic aspects of recolonization of the Elwha River, and the importance of tissue archives for new genetic techniques are discussed.
The influence of life history trade-offs and the size of incubation gravels on egg size variation in sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka)
TLDR
Examination of reproductive traits within another population identified a trade-off between egg weight and egg number for females of a given body length, suggesting that energy-rich individuals produce large eggs and large secondary sexual characteristics rather than sacrificing one for the other.
Morphometric Comparison of Three Races of Kokanee (Oncorhynchus nerka) Within a Large British Columbia Lake
TLDR
Kokanee straying to spawn in areas not of their natal origin were identified by age, size, vertebral count, scale character, and stability of differences between races over a period of four years.
Variation in Body Size, Fecundity, and Egg Size of Sockeye and Kokanee Salmon, Oncorhynchus nerka, Released from Hatchery
TLDR
Fecundity in hatchery-released sockeye salmon vary with body size influenced by environmental components, and their egg size would be affected by both environmental and genetic components such as polygene model within a cohort or population because of exclusion from the breeding competition and parental care.
Variation in life history characteristics and morphology of sockeye salmon in the Kvichak River system, Bristol Bay, Alaska
TLDR
The hypothesis that differences in spawning and incubation habitat alone can promote differentiation in traits associated with reproductive success was tested in sockeye salmon from the Kvichak River system in Alaska.
