      Pearsons, Todd (University of Washington Water Center, 2009-05-26)
      Todd Pearsons will present an overview of salmon hatcheries. He will address critical scientific uncertainties related to hatchery programs: increasing long-term natural production, limiting genetic impacts, and limiting ...
    • It's About Time! Natural and Unnatural Selection on Migration and Spawning in Pacific Salmon 

      Quinn, Tom (University of Washington Water Center, 2008-02-14)
      Quinn will discuss how natural selection operates on the timing of migration and spawning by salmon. Temperature and flow are the primary physical factors in the evolution and ecology of timing. Salmon seem to be adapting ...
    • Why do Salmon Stray? Tradeoffs Between Habitat and Homing 

      Cram, Jeremy (University of Washington Water Center, 2010-02-17)
      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 ...
