Paul Dorn, Preliminary Results of Beach Seine Sampling in 2007 and 2008. Unmarked coho dominated our seines, particularly in may/june. Coho size about 120-140cm, larger if from hatchery. Lots of juvenile chum in apr/may/june (many more in 2007 than in 2008, probably due to Dec 07 floods). 2008 pink salmon (may/june) show this is part [...]
Nearshore distribution and size-structure of juvenile salmon and forage fishfrom the observations and modeling on watersheds, marine waters, and marine biota. These talks will focus
Elisabeth Duffy*, David Beauchamp Juvenile salmon are moving through Puget Sound (PS) from April-July. By end of July most have made it to the deep ocean. Percent of fish from hatcheries is about 50% in N PS and 90% in S PS. Nearshore fish comunity: herring and perch up north, hatchery salmon dominate in the [...]
Implementation of the recovery plan for SRKWs Section 7 consultations: Looking at Federal actions (funding, permiting, regulating) that might affect hydropower (hatchery production), water treatment plants, sewer outfalls, in-water construction, upland projects, habitat restoration, research, tidal and wave energy, etc. Recovery plan implementation: started in 2003 really with funding before plan was final (research, enforcement [...]
Andrea Copping, Chief Leah George-Wilson, Richard Beamish, Mary Ruckelshaus, Joel Baker Richard Beamish: State of the Salish Sea (Richard Beamish) Warming trends over last 30yrs in Strait of Georgia [SoG] (steady) and Puget Sound (slower) Decline in % early marine survival of Coho from 15% down to 1% since 1996 (entrance to SoG through Sept [...]
Last weekend was the beginning of blackmouth season in Marine Area 7 (the San Juan Archipelago and vicinity). I’ve been wondering if WDFW should encourage fishing for Puget Sound resident Chinook as there are some indications that resident Chinook are loading up J pod with persistent pollutants, while decreasing fishing pressure on Fraser River Chinook [...]
This just in from salmonuniversity.com: Forecasts are great for the Queen Charlotte’s and the Nushagak in 2009 Canadian Fisheries claims the water temperature is the coldest in 11 years and the ocean conditions are perfect for setting up huge runs of returning Chinook and Coho for 2009. In 2005 the Nushagak had over 300k returning [...]
It appears this may only be for recipients of Salmon Recovery Board funds, but one goal of this site is help orca recovery advocates to understand and get involved with salmon recovery efforts. So, here ya go: clipped from www.rco.wa.gov Building Better Projects – Salmon Habitat Conference April 15-16, 2009 Little Creek Conference Center, Shelton [...]
First I’ve heard of this, but the idea of damming the Hamathko seems sacrilegious. The heads of those distant inlets and fjords are deep wilderness in my mind, gateways to the fantastic icefields of Mount Waddington and beyond. Is there really a need for hydropower up there?! I assert that solar, tidal, and/or wind turbines [...]
Long Live the Kings announced in Dec 2008 an effort to implement internal changes at WDFW to manage salmon in an “All-H” framework — one that integrates decisions about Hatcheries, Harvest, and Habitat. Perhaps this is a step towards the “Ecosystem Based Management” which no one can define for me, but is already a buzz [...]
It will be fascinating to see how this money is actually spent. The article mentions using part of the $30M to retire licenses from commercial troll fishers. I’m guessing the $15M ($7.5M from Canada and the same from the U.S.) will be helping to replenish the PSC portfolio. This could mean renewed funding in 2010 [...]
