Record low runs of chinook salmon to the Yukon River in the late 1990s intensified concerns about salmon bycatch by U.S. groundfish fisheries in the eastern Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI). We estimated the bycatch of Yukon River chinook...

Ecosystem principles and approaches offer promise to improve the current fisheries management regime. However there is considerable confusion about how an ecosystem-based approach can be implemented, and how to transition to such an approach. This...

Life history variation in Pacific salmon has been generally interpreted as adaptive in the sense that individual traits have evolved freely in response to selectional pressures in the environment. Correlations among traits such as early maturity,...

Previous studies demonstrated that some fish and amphibian hybrid crosses that were inviable as diploids proved viable as triploids. It appeared that the extra set of chromosomes allowed the hybrid offspring to overcome genetic incompatibility....
