NEW paper on freshwater and early marine survival of Chilko Lake sockeye salmon

Kintama has published the results of a five-year study “Quantifying survival of age-2 Chilko Lake sockeye salmon during the first 50 days of migration ” in the Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences. The article is available here.

In collaboration with Dr. Scott Hinch and his students at UBC, we used acoustic telemetry to investigate survival of age-2 sockeye salmon as they emigrated from Chilko Lake, British Columbia, Canada, to northeastern Vancouver Island (NEVI) from 2010 to 2014.
