Description Salmon are capable of precise homing at fine spatial scales, but some proportion of them stray to other areas within their natal system for spawning. Hatchery supplementation programs, such as the one being used in the Yakima River, WA, create an ideal system in which to study the tradeoffs between homing and habitat. Hatchery-origin fish are reared in acclimation facilities that are intended to extend the spatial distribution of spawning and increase natural production. The objectives of...
