SASAP: Interacting effects of ocean climate and at-sea competition on Alaskan salmon

Principal Investigators:

Pete Rand, Robert W Campbell, and Kristen B. Gorman

Based on past climate patterns and more recent observations of anomalously warm ocean conditions in the northeast Pacific Ocean, we hypothesize that marine habitat thermally suitable for salmon has been contracting and may exacerbate the density-dependence that has been observed for decades across a number North Pacific salmon populations (Peterman 1984, Kaeriyama et al. 2009; Ruggerone and Conners 2015, Jeffrey et al. 2016; Malick and Cox 2016; Yasumisshi et al. 2016; Ruggerone et al., in press, Shaul and Geiger, in press).
