A cooperative study involving the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, the Taku River Tlingit First Nation, and the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans was conducted to estimate the number of spawning chinook salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha in the Taku River in 1996 with a mark-recapture experiment. Fish were captured at Canyon Island on the lower Taku River with fish wheels from May through August and were individually marked with back-sewn, solid-core spaghetti tags and were batch marked as well with an opercle punch plus removal of the left axillary appendage. Sampling on the spawning grounds in tributaries was used to estimate the fraction of the population that had been marked. Spawning abundance of medium-size chinook salmon (401-659 mm long; mid-eye to fork of tail) was estimated to be 10,402 (SE = 1,553). Estimated spawning abundance of large-size fish (660 mm) was 79,019 (SE = 9,048), and the estimated total of medium and large fish was 89,421 (SE = 9,180). Estimated abundance of the larger fish from aerial surveys of parts of the Taku River was 25% of the mark-recapture estimate, a trend repeated from similar studies in 1989, 1990 and 1995. The 1991 brood year (mostly age 1.3) constituted an estimated 78% of the age-.2 to age-.5 spawning population, followed by the 1990 brood year (mostly age 1.4), which constituted an estimated 12% of the population.

Spawning Areas and Abundance of Chinook Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) in the Columbia River Basin: Past and Present One of 23 reports in the series: Special scientific report--fisheries available on . However, the trends we observed for the sexes combined are also likely to occur for each sex, as they did in a study of Chinook salmon in the Nushagak River where fish with spawning coloration were sampled. Second, we lessened the problem by excluding early-maturing 1-ocean males (jacks) by focusing our analysis on 2-, 3- and 4-ocean fish.
Chinook salmon spawn in streams and rivers along the west coast of North America. The Yukon River is one of the most northerly of the major Chinook spawning rivers, hosting some of the longest upstream migrating salmon stocks in the world. Some headwater stocks migrate over 1, miles/ km to reach their spawning grounds in the Yukon and. Adult Fall-run Chinook Salmon Chinook salmon spawning runs in the Tuolumne River have been monitored to some degree since , with estimates of adult escapement available for all years since Counts of migrating adult salmon were made at a weir in Modesto at river kilometer (rkm) by the California Department of Fish.
cycles on the observed changes in the abundance of chinook salmon. Conventional wisdom attributes the decline of Pacific salmon in the Columbia River and elsewhere in the Northwest to over harvest, habitat destruction and the. The Hanford Reach of the Columbia River provides the only major spawning habitat for the upriver bright (URB) race of fall chinook salmon in the mainstem Columbia River. Hanford Site biologists have conducted aerial surveys of spawning salmon in the Hanford Reach since This report summarizes.

The Yukon River has the longest freshwater migration route of any salmon, over 3, km (1, mi) from its mouth in the Bering Sea to spawning grounds upstream of Whitehorse, Yukon. Since Chinook rely on fat reserves for energy upon entering fresh water, commercial fish caught here are highly prized for their unusually high levels of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty : Salmonidae.
Spawning abundance of chinook salmon in the Taku River in Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Sport Fish Fishery Data Series 97–14, Anchorage, Alaska, 24 pp Google Scholar. Chinook salmon sexually mature between the ages of 2 and 7 but are typically 3 or 4 years old when they return to spawn.
Chinook dig out gravel nests (redds) on stream bottoms where they lay their eggs. All Chinook salmon die after spawning.
Young Chinook salmon feed on terrestrial and aquatic insects, amphipods, and other crustaceans. Spawning abundance is relevant to estimates of large spawning Chinook salmon using a mark-recapture study that has been conducted annually since by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Sport Fish, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Canada, and Tahltan First Nation.
•98% juveniles rear in freshwater for 1 year after hatching • Smolt leave the system in May and June • Rear in the Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea for 1 to 5 years • Adults return as mostly 3 ocean and 4 ocean during April, May and June • – 36, large Chinook (McPherson et al.
) • Average run size = 40, large Taku River Chinook Salmon Life History. Chinook salmon are anadromous fish, which means they can live in both fresh and saltwater. Chinook salmon have a relatively complex life history that includes spawning and juvenile rearing in rivers followed by migrating to saltwater to feed, grow, and mature before returning to freshwater to spawn.

Basins within kilometres of the two introduction points in Chile became populated by chinook within 15 years. The new runs were initiated by a small proportion of spawning salmon which strayed from their natal river. Similarities between their native and the Patagonian landscapes have set the salmon up for survival in the southern hemisphere.
Summer chinook salmon are more variable in their spawning habitats; in the Snake River, they inhabit small, high elevation tributaries typical of spring chinook salmon habitat, whereas in the upper Columbia River they spawn in larger, lower elevation streams more characteristic of fall chinook salmon habitat.
Differences are also evident in. Abundance of adult female Chinook Salmon escapements in the Taku River ranged from 4, to 70, fish between and Between andTaku River smolt abundance. Timing, Abundance, and Population Characteristics of Spawning Chinook Salmon in the Cedar/Sammamish Watershed - 1 - INTRODUCTION In the Pacific Northwest, Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) are an important economic, biological, and cultural resource that embodies the values of the region.
ADF&G expects 9, adult chinook will spawn on the Taku River, which means there is no allowable catch expected because the expected number is well below the escapement goal range of 19, fish, according to the report forecasts 8, chinook will spawn on the Stikine River, which is below the escapement goal range of 14, fish.
Mismanagement of the Canadian in-river fishery, initiated in for leverage in salmon treaty negotiations, clearly has impacted Taku Chinook. Among the faults in that fishery are unreliable harvest accounting, inappropriate fishing time, and manipulation of the mark-recapture system that estimates spawning escapements.
Soon after the adult salmon spawn and bury their fertilized eggs, they then die and decompose, providing essential food and nutrients to the local watershed. And the cycle begins again. In the Taku River we are fortunate to have all five of North America’s Pacific salmon species.
Chinook salmon, Oncorhynchus tshawytscha (Walbaum), is an important biological and cultural resource in Alaska, but knowledge about Chinook salmon ecology is limited in many regions.
From tospawning distribution and abundance of a northern Chinook salmon population on the Togiak River in south‐west Alaska were assessed. Chinook Salmon Headwaters. For Chinook Salmon spawning in the headwaters of their birth stream the river bed must be gravel based and relatively solid to prevent the gravel from shifting and crushing the eggs.
The water is no deeper than 36 inches and may be as shallow as 12 inches. However the average depth for spawning is between 20 to. Clouds and mist cover mountaintops in Taku Inlet in (File photo by Ed Schoenfeld/CoastAlaska) There are some promising returns of younger, wild-stock king salmon on one Southeast Alaska river this spring.
Returns of fully-grown chinook are still disappointing but the increase in younger fish could signal a rebound in future years.Some populations of Chinook salmon migrate more than 2, miles to spawn in in the upper Yukon River to spawn.
