  • wild salmon
  • At the fish counter, farm-raised salmon looks just like wild salmon. (wired.com)
  • There are numerous reasons given for the decline in wild salmon stocks: climate change and ocean acidification, contaminants from human activity, pathogens from fish farms are some of the common targets. (care2.com)
  • Only a few such "supplementation hatcheries" exist so far, and no one knows if they will damage the genetic make-up of wild salmon populations. (newscientist.com)
  • Indeed, almost every attempt to transplant wild salmon from one river to another has failed. (newscientist.com)
  • So, each river's wild salmon represent a unique evolutionary jewel, irreplaceable on any timescale relevant to humans. (newscientist.com)
  • But every year, large numbers of these hatchery salmon - by now changed by generations of natural selection for hatchery conditions - stray further upstream to interbreed with wild salmon. (newscientist.com)
  • chum
  • Chum, one of the least common types of fish, is also called dog salmon for it's dog-like teeth. (ehow.com)
  • place
  • Place salmon in processor, and pulse 5 seconds. (parents.com)
  • Whether your relationship with salmon takes place in a fish market, a restaurant or in the streams and rivers that feed the Pacific Ocean, you can take action to protect an entire ecosystem. (care2.com)
  • Place salmon on a rack fitted into a large rimmed baking sheet, and refrigerate uncovered until the surface looks shiny and lightly glazed, about 2 hours. (wholefoodsmarket.com)
  • rivers
  • Even rivers like the Fraser in British Columbia, known for decades for its abundant salmon stocks, has experienced year after year of dwindling returns. (care2.com)
  • This huge effort - costing tens of millions of dollars a year - began nearly 60 years ago as a way to restore commercial salmon production lost when the government dammed rivers and diverted water for irrigation projects. (newscientist.com)
  • Today, well over half the salmon caught in western rivers began life in a hatchery, not a natural stream. (newscientist.com)
  • The biologists argue that even if rivers can be restored so that they can support large numbers of fish, without native genes salmon would lack the genetic adaptations they need to thrive. (newscientist.com)
  • habitat
  • Commit some time or money to legitimate organizations and groups that engage in salmon habitat restoration or study potential causes of declining stocks. (care2.com)
  • Demand changes to government and corporate policies that degrade salmon habitat for short-lived economic benefits. (care2.com)
  • fresh
  • When purchasing whole salmon, avoid fishy-smelling salmon as it may not be fresh. (ehow.com)
  • Meanwhile, fish ranchers still have to overcome the fact that although 88 percent of the fresh salmon Americans eat is farmed, it doesn't taste as good as wild. (wired.com)
  • spawn
  • Salmon display a complex homing behaviour, determined partly by genes, that takes them back to their natal streams to spawn. (newscientist.com)
  • After all, the salmon would be returning to spawn with human assistance in concrete tanks, so what did local adaptations matter? (newscientist.com)
  • Pacific
  • This species is a Pacific salmon that is primarily red in hue during spawning. (wikipedia.org)
  • The rest of the world's salmon originates in the Pacific region, most notably Alaska and Canada. (ehow.com)
  • Some Pacific salmon is also harvested or farmed in the American Northwest. (ehow.com)
  • Along the coast of the Pacific Northwest, traditional spawning channels that once overflowed with salmon are experiencing low or no returns. (care2.com)
  • So, why are wild Pacific salmon disappearing? (care2.com)
  • Seasonal distribution on some notes on the biology of salmon shark ( Lamna ditropis ) in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. (iucnredlist.org)
  • Growth and maturity of salmon sharks in the eastern and western North Pacific, and comments on back-calculation methods. (iucnredlist.org)
  • Distribution of pelagic elasmobranchs caught by salmon research gillnets in the North Pacific. (iucnredlist.org)
  • EVERY year, fisheries biologists in Washington, Oregon and California watch over several hundred million Pacific salmon eggs, rearing the hatchlings in concrete ponds until they are old enough to begin their arduous journey to the sea. (newscientist.com)
  • To me, that's a prescription for disaster," says Robin Waples, who heads the Pacific salmon conservation programme for the US National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) in Seattle. (newscientist.com)
  • native
  • In Clayoquot Sound , off of Vancouver Island's wild West Coast, Native communities have relied on salmon as a dietary staple. (care2.com)
