Development of New Methodologies for Use in Ecological Studies of Pacific Salmon and Other Fish Species Important to the Department of the Interior

Specific objectives are 1) Archival tags: continue studies to test the archival tag techniques; 2) Otoliths: refinement and validation of the use of strontium to calcium ratios to determine the chronology of migration between freshwater and marine habitats, application of microchemistry to describe migration in salmonids, and application of otolith ageing and microstructure to studies of fish ecology and fisheries management.
