Survival and migratory patterns of juvenile salmonids

Starting in 2007, a project funded by the CALFED Science Program and in collaboration with UC Davis will acquire movement and survival data of salmonids through the Central Valley and San Francisco Estuary. Chinook salmon and steelhead, two salmonid species with different life history strategies, will be followed.

Ocean ecology of salmonids

The Salmon Ocean Ecology Team is conducting research on the ocean ecology of juvenile salmon off California to determine interannual variability of juvenile salmon physiology and the influences of biotic and abiotic environmental factors through assessment of abundance, distribution, movement patterns, growth, feeding, and energy status.
