Salish Sea Marine Survival Project Publication #2

Members of the Steelhead Workgroup found low early marine survival for 13 populations of acoustically-tagged wild (16% survival through Puget Sound) and hatchery steelhead smolts (11% survival) over 2006-2009. The highest mortality rates during outmigration were observed within Central Puget Sound and from the north end of Hood Canal to Admiralty Inlet. Read more: Moore et al.
