Injured Resources Addressed: Sockeye Salmon
Abstract: Trustee Council funded research by Ruggerone and Rogers (Project 96048) demonstrated that large spawning escapements can have long-term impacts on sockeye growth and adult returns. The findings have new and important consequences for stock-recruitment modeling, which is the basis for determining escapement levels that allow for maximum sustained harvest. The research also demonstrated that marine growth of sockeye salmon increased after the mid-1970s, corresponding to the increase in salmon production throughout Alaska and the ocean regime shift that has impacted numerous species. This project will fund preparation of two manuscripts for publication in peer reviewed journals.
