Interacting Effects of Ocean Climate and At-Sea Competition on Alaskan Salmon

PROJECT

Interacting Effects of Ocean Climate and At-Sea Competition on Alaskan Salmon

Closing the gaps in monitoring in the Arctic region.

Objectives

This group is building on data syntheses from recent oceanographic studies and long-term, salmon population monitoring. By accounting for the interplay between climate and at-sea competitive processes across broad, ocean domains, the working group is:

Helping to inform decision-makers on potential changes in future salmon production
Drawing on the expertise of group members to evaluate the current gaps in monitoring in the Arctic region
Making recommendations on how scientists can improve the understanding of salmon range extension and colonization in the Arctic
