Description Bristol Bay, Alaska, USA, produces some of the most abundant and biologically diverse sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) runs in the world, many of which have been heavily fished by gillnet fisheries for over 100 years. Quantification of fishery selection on age and size at maturation over long time periods is essential to understand evolutionary consequences on stock demographics and sustainable fishery management. We performed these quantifications for multiple fishing districts from...
