We look at a new paper that digs into the factors leading harbor seal to prey on juvenile steelhead and the abundance of both coho and Chinook salmon during the steelhead outmigration window to understand how these pulses of hatchery salmon impact the weekly survival of steelhead moving through Puget Sound.
Key Questions Surrounding the WDFW’s Hatchery White Paper
In Part Two of our hatchery white paper review, our Science Advisor provides further insights into the impacts of hatchery steelhead management on Washington Coastal systems.
