SASAP: Consistency, causes, and consequences of declining size and age of Alaskan salmon

Principal Investigators:

Eric Palkovacs, Marissa L. Baskett, Stephanie M Carlson, Andrew P. Hendry, Bert Lewis, and Peter Westley

Decreases in the body size and age of returning adult salmon have been noted for several Alaskan salmon species. Size and age declines have the potential to impact the biomass and stability of salmon populations. Despite evidence for decreased size and age of spawning adult salmon for some species and rivers, a comprehensive synthesis of size and age trends across species and populations is currently lacking. Several potential drivers of size and age shifts have been proposed, including fisheries, climate change, and density dependence at sea.... more
