Growth and Survivorship on Coho Salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) from a Study of Otolith Microstructure
MetadataShow full item record
Otoliths are calcium carbonate structures found in the inner ear of fish. Otoliths have been found to create daily growth rings and can therefore be used to establish fish age. Growth rate and survivorship in coho salmon (Oncoryhnchus kisutch) are often significantly affected by birth date, stream conditions, predation, and competition for limited resources. The two streams studied here, Cranberry River in Wisconsin and Fork Creek in Washington, are exposed to different flow regimes.

Recreating the Social Environment of Salmon Beach: An Analysis of the Salmon Beach Community and Applications Within the Field of Urban Design Brown, Alexander H. (2011-05-01)Salmon Beach is a community in Tacoma, Washington that remains relatively hidden and unheard of, even to the local population. To get to this community, one must first find the unmarked entrance, which looks more like an ...
Examining the early life history of the coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) from a study of otolith microstructure Duarte, Paulina; Morschauser, Tim; Fireizen, Yaron; Ruiz, Ernest; Brewer, Matthew T.; Hintz, William D.; Koslov, David (2007-05-01)Birth date can be an important correlate to evolutionary fitness because birth timing can profoundly influence growth and survival. As part of an ongoing study, we report here on birth date and growth patterns for two ...
Modeling the Effects of Stream Microhabitat on Group Size and Foraging Success of Juvenile Coho Salmon. Hintz, William D.; Faust, Matthew; Banach, Mitchell (2009-01-27)In 1966 coho salmon(Oncorhynchus kisutch)from the Columbia River in Washington were introduced into Michigan tributary streams of Lake Superior. Since then coho have spread throughout the Lake Superior drainage. The primary ...
