Wintering Ecology of Juvenile Coho

Synopsis:This project will assess variation in the density, condition (size and body composition at smolting), and overwinter survival of juvenile salmon relative to habitat type. It will also characterize critical wintering habitats of the Anchor River on a basin-scale assessment through a remote sensing survey of off-channel habitats. Together this information will identify critical habitats for sustained coho production in one of the most important river systems on the southern Kenai Peninsula.
