  • About the Edition

    A mark-recapture experiment was used in 1993 to estimate abundance of chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) age 1.3 and older returning to the Chilkat River, near Haines, Alaska. One hundred sixty-one (161) large (age 1.3 and older) chinook salmon were captured in gill nets between June 1 and July 22, 1993. The mean date of the immigration was July 3. One hundred fifty-nine (159) of these fish were tagged with solid-core spaghetti tags. Between 29 July and 4 September, 614 large chinook salmon spawning in the Chilkat River drainage mostly on the Kelsall and Tahini rivers were inspected for tags to estimate abundance. A modified Petersen model (n1 = 159, n2 = 614, m2 = 21) was used to estimate that 4,472 (SE = 851) chinook salmon age 1.3 and older returned to the Chilkat River drainage in 1993. An unknown number of these fish died of natural causes or were caught in a subsistence fishery prior to spawning. The population estimate is not significantly different from the estimate for large chinook salmon in 1991 (5,897 plus or minus 1,005) and 1992 (5,204 plus or minus 935).

Chinook salmon are the largest Pacific salmon species and, on average, grow to be three feet ( meters) long and approximately 30 pounds (13 kilograms). However, some Chinook salmon can reach more than five feet ( meters) long and pounds (50 kilograms).

The salmon are blue-green on the head and back and silver on the sides. Chinook are the largest Salmonidae in New Zealand, commonly reaching 10–15 kg in weight. Chinook salmon occur mainly on the east coast of the South Island from the Waiau River in the north to the Clutha River in the south.

The main runs occur in the large braided rivers – the Waimakariri, Rakaia, Rangitata and Waitaki. A school of Chinook Salmon swimming in the Russian River, upstream of the Healdsburg Fish Ladder. Video shot by Justin Smith, Sonoma County Water Agency.

The decline of Pacific salmon to the brink of extinction is a clear sign of serious problems in the Salmon Without Rivers, fisheries biologist Jim Lichatowich offers an eye-opening look at the roots and evolution of the salmon crisis in the Pacific Northwest.

He describes the multitude of factors over the past century and a half that Cited by: However, summer chinook salmon in the upper Columbia River are genetically very similar to fall chinook salmon in that river. As a group, Snake River spring and summer chinook salmon are characterized by relatively low levels of genetic variation.

Winans () found that heterozygosity values in Snake River spring and summer chinook salmon. Here we report passage results for fall Chinook salmon for, and (fall Chinook salmon were not tagged in ), which included, but were not limited to, fishway entrance use, movements in the fishways, delay and passage times at Chilkat River chinook salmon studies Columbia River dams, and routes and rates of fallback events.

Detailed information on. The most closely related work is the National Research Council Report ``Upstream: Salmon and Society in the Pacific West,'' which dealt more broadly with salmon throughout the region, but drew many of its lessons from the Columbia River, and ``The Organic Machine: Remaking the Columbia River '' by Richard White, a historian/5(3).

Valley that use size and Chilkat River chinook salmon studies of capture to estimate race of juvenile Chinook salmon in the Chilkat River chinook salmon studies Sacramento River and Delta.

The size criterion was developed by Frank Fisher (Fisher ), of CDFG in as a weekly model of Chinook salmon growth and later modified to a daily criterion by Sheila Greene of California Department of Water Resources.

Chinook salmon populations are found in the upper and lower Columbia River, the Willamette River, and the Snake River. Chinook salmon have a varied life cycle with some populations (\ocean-type") immediately going to sea the same year they emerge and others (\stream-type") rearing in freshwater for one year before migrating.

After spending one. Explores the roots and evolution of the salmon crisis in the Pacific Northwest. The author describes the evolutionary history of the salmon as well as the geological history of the Pacific Northwest, before considering the multitude of factors, including historical, social, scientific and cultural, which have led to the salmon's decline/5.

Juvenile salmon m ortality through the Delta is hypothesized to be related to changes in hydrology (i.e. reverse flows, San Joaquin River inflow and export volume) and other factors such as water temperature. Inthe main objective of the Chinook Salmon survival study was to estimate.

Historically, the range of chinook salmon included all coastal streams below nat-ural barriers. On the coast, inthere were approx-imatelychinook salmon.

Today, this number.Chinook salmon from Idaho tend to spend one to five years in the ocean before returning to fresh water to spawn, with two years being the most common. Chinook salmon, like other salmon species, have the ability to find their way back to the same stream and often the exact same place to spawn that their parents spawned.
