2022 Alaska Groundfish Seminar Series -- Alexandra McInturf
Exploring predation effects of salmon sharks on adult salmon in the Eastern North Pacific.
Though predation impacts salmon stocks in the Eastern North Pacific, very little is known about sources of mortality for adult salmon while at sea. We will share the results of a project designed to address this knowledge gap by focusing on one potential predator: the salmon shark (Lamna ditropis). Via a combination of methods, from stomach content analysis to species distribution modeling, we are exploring the composition of salmon shark diet and assessing how frequently the movements of salmon sharks overlap with potential salmon habitat. This information should For more improve our understanding of a predator that may have a substantial effect on salmon recovery efforts.
