Salish Sea Marine Survival Project Publication #17

Salish Sea Marine Survival Project researchers sampled juvenile subyearling Chinook salmon during their migration through estuary, nearshore, and offshore habitats in Puget Sound. They found that natural-origin stocks tended to be smaller and occupy habitats longer than hatchery-origin stocks. Both natural- and hatchery-origin stocks grew faster in offshore habitats than in nearshore and estuary habitats. Researchers found little evidence of size-selective mortality among habitats and stocks in Puget Sound. Read more: Gamble et al.
