Shigehiko Urawa, Terry Beacham, Ben Sutherland, and Shunpei Sato

Abstract Excerpt:
The Gulf of Alaska is an important habitat for Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.). In this productive ecosystem, Asian and North American chum salmon (O. keta) populations intermingle in winter (Urawa et al. 1997, 2016; Beacham et al. 2009), while North American populations are dominant in summer (Urawa et al. 2000, 2009).
