RESEARCH

POPULATION DYNAMICS

The general goal of our population dynamics projects is to determine how multiple factors (including temperature) interact to influence the abundance of freshwater fishes over time and space.

CUMULATIVE EFFECTS ON FRASER RIVER SOCKEYE SALMON

This project is using historical data on Fraser River sockeye salmon abundance, fecundity, age, survival and environmental conditions to develop life-cycle models using an integrated, hierarchical modeling framework. The models will be used to assess the contribution of different factors/stressors to the dynamics of multiple Fraser River sockeye salmon populations.

ASSESSING THE FEASIBILITY OF sockeye salmon reintroductions

This project is using available information on sockeye salmon vital rates to parameterize life-cycle models that that will be used to evaluate the feasibility of re-establishing a naturally-reproducing, self-sustaining population of sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) above Coquitlam Dam (Lower Mainland, BC).
