TODAY! Seminar with Ed Farley

Salmon Ocean Ecology Research at Auke Bay Laboratories
This presentation will highlight the current salmon ocean ecology research activities that Auke Bay Laboratories scientists are participating in within the Gulf of Alaska eastern Bering Sea.  These highlights include: connecting early marine ecology of pink salmon in southeastern Alaska to future forecasts of adult returns; understanding how varying ocean conditions during summer in the eastern Gulf of Alaska may impact survival of Columbia River Chinook; connecting climate variability in the eastern Bering Sea to juvenile Bristol Bay growth and overwinter survival; linking ocean conditions in the northern Bering Sea to Yukon River Chinook salmon distribution and growth as well as juvenile Chinook salmon abundance to future returns to the Yukon River; connecting ‘real time’ climate data and ocean conditions to run timing of adult Yukon River Chinook salmon.
