Landscape-scale analysis of the relationship between juvenile Chinook size and growth and stream temperature in western Alaska
This project investigated the feasibility of using existing data to assess the variability in size-at-age and annual growth for juvenile Chinook salmon across the western Alaska landscape and to estimate the relationship between juvenile Chinook size-at-age or annual growth and spatial or temporal stream temperature gradients. The project showed adequate data exists for undertaking these investigations and for assessing how expected water temperature changes in western Alaska will affect juvenile Chinook salmon habitat suitability and ultimately juvenile salmon condition.
