Injured Resources Addressed: Sockeye Salmon

Abstract: Major economic damage to fisheries may result because of the over escapement of sockeye salmon associated with fisheries closures caused by the EVOS. This project involves procedures to assess the effects of sockeye salmon over escapement. Fresh water production from the 1989 escapements will be assessed in the Kenai/Skilak, Red, Akalura, and Upper Station Lakes of the Kenai Peninsula and Kodiak Island in Alaska. This project includes studies that essentially follow the pattern established in the original 1990 study plan but with significant modifications to accommodate recent findings. Critical biological attributes will be estimated. Age and growth of juveniles and smolts, nutrient budgets, plankton populations, and zooplankton information will be used to infer effects. A pilot research project will be developed to determine experimentally the cause of sockeye salmon population declines and potential restorative actions.
