Session Title

The Salish Sea Marine Survival Project- Novel Approaches, Project Status and Key Findings

Description

The Strait of Georgia is an important early marine rearing area for juvenile Pacific Salmon. The linkage of this early marine period to total marine survival has been identified as important but mechanisms regulating the survival during this period have not been identified. This study examines the diet of juvenile Coho and Chinook salmon captured from trawl and purse seine surveys throughout the Strait of Georgia over the past 17 years during the early summer and fall periods. Interannual and regional variations in diet of both species will be assessed to determine if this variation is associated with trends in survival.
