A hypothesis-driven statistical approach for identifying ecosystem indicators of coho and Chinook salmon marine survival
- Salmon marine survival declined in Puget Sound in the 1980s and failed to recover.
- Used hypothesis-driven framework of indicators for salmon marine survival.
- Analyzed factors related to ecology, environmental conditions, and human impacts.
- No single factor explains declines in marine survival.
- Predation, hatchery timing, and anthropogenic impacts are strongest model factors.
