Salish Sea Marine Survival Project researchers compared seasonal movements of Chilko Lake bull trout to the timing of sockeye salmon juvenile outmigration and adult spawning events. They found that bull trout residency was higher during outmigration and spawning events than at other times throughout the year. This result suggests that bull trout may exploit both outmigrating juvenile sockeye and spawned eggs as seasonally-available prey resources.
