Item Identification

Title: AFSC/ABL: Ugashik sockeye salmon scale time series
Short Name: AFSC/ABL: Ugashik sockeye salmon scale time series
Status: Completed
Publication Date: Unknown

A time series of scale samples (1956 b?? 2002) collected from adult sockeye salmon returning to Ugashik River were retrieved from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. These scales were digitized, revealing growth information for the freshwater and marine life history stages of sockeye salmon. The growth information will be related to time series of sockeye salmon production to Bristol Bay and oceanographic conditions within the Bering Sea and North Pacific Ocean.


This dataset contains data on sockeye salmon growth derived from scale analysis.
