Ecological causes and consequences of straying: stress and competition on the spawning grounds between wild and hatchery-produced chum salmon (Oncorhynchus keta)

My project investigates how stress encountered during development may influence straying rates of hatchery reared chum salmon, and how stress affects spawning behaviors of hatchery and wild adults in a natural environment.

Fishery, climate, and ecological effects on Pacific halibut size-at-age

This collaborative project seeks to determine potential human and natural causes for a long-term decline in size-at-age of Pacific halibut since the 1980s
