Salmon Survival, Growth, and Age
Factors affecting the survival, growth, and age of Pacific salmon is an ongoing research topic of NRC and its collaborators. Key discoveries include adverse effects of highly abundant pink salmon (650 million pink salmon in 2011) on the survival, growth, and age of sockeye and Chinook salmon. This effort is supported by associated research documenting wild and hatchery salmon abundance and biomass across the Pacific Rim, 1925-present. Journal publications available upon request.
