A Stakeholder Project to Model Water Temperature Under Future Climate Scenarios in the Satus and Toppenish Watersheds of the Yakima River Basin in Washington, USA
The goal of this study was to support an assessment of the potential effects of climate change on select natural, social, and economic resources in the Yakima River Basin. A workshop with local stakeholders highlighted the usefulness of projecting climate change impacts on anadromous steelhead...

A Statistical Model for In-season Forecasts of Sockeye Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) Returns to the Bristol Bay Districts of Alaska
We developed a model for in-season age-specific forecasts of salmon returns using preseason return forecasts, age composition of in-season returns, cumulative in-season returns by fishing district, and age composition and an index of abundance from an in-season test fishery. We apply this method to...

Adequate management and scientific investigation of ecosystems depends on classification of landscape systems based on all significant bio-physical and associated cultural properties. The present classification is a hierarchical system design that can be modeled in terms of a natural system...

Parentage-based tagging (PBT) is a promising alternative to traditional coded-wire tag (CWT) methodologies for monitoring and evaluating hatchery stocks. This approach involves the genotyping of hatchery broodstock and uses parentage assignments to identify the origin and brood year of their...

A ‘Behaviorscape’ Perspective on Stream Fish Ecology and Conservation: Linking Fish Behavior to Riverscapes
Landscape ecology (and its application to rivers and streams: riverine landscapes or riverscapes) provides an expansive depiction of patterns of physical and biological phenomena, yet mechanisms driving those patterns are rarely identified. Behavioral ecology aims to elucidate mechanisms of...

Accounting for Tag Loss and Its Uncertainty in a Mark–recapture Study with a Mixture of Single and Double Tags
Unless accounted for in the estimation, tag loss will cause mark–recapture methods to overestimate the true abundance of a closed population and to underestimate the associated uncertainty. Current methods of accounting for tag loss require all marked individuals to be double-tagged. We present a...

Natural populations that evolve under extreme climates are likely to diverge because of selection in local environments. To explore whether local adaptation has occurred in redband trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss gairdneri) occupying differing climate regimes, we used a limited genome scan...

Adaptive Genetic Variation Distinguishes Chilean Blue Mussels (Mytilus chilensis) from Different Marine Environments
Chilean mussel populations have been thought to be panmictic with limited genetic structure. Genotyping-by-sequencing approaches have enabled investigation of genomewide variation that may better distinguish populations that have evolved in different environments. We investigated neutral and...

Age and Length Composition of Columbia Basin Chinook and Sockeye Salmon and Steelhead at Bonneville Dam in 2004
In continuation of the Stock Assessment Project, the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission (CRITFC) conducted a field study at Bonneville Dam in 2004 to assess the age, length-at-age and stock composition of adult Pacific salmon migrating up the Columbia River, and to predict the 2005 Chinook...

In continuation of the Stock Assessment Project, the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission (CRITFC) conducted a field study at Bonneville Dam in 2005 to assess the age, length-at-age and stock composition of adult Pacific salmon migrating up the Columbia River. These data were then used to...
