Abstract: Comparison of marine survival determined from adults returning to hatcheries, with pristane concentration increases in mussels collected from sampling stations within 25 kilometers of hatcheries before and two to three weeks after release of juveniles, showed that 33 percent of the interannual survival variability is explained by pristane increases. This is sufficient to provide an independent basis for marine survival forecasts, which may be improved by additional monitoring stations to geographically optimize coverage near hatcheries. Beginning in FY 00, marine survival forecasts will be compared with actual survivals of hatchery-released juvenile pink salmon to evaluate the reliability of these forecasts as a salmon management tool. The applicability of these forecasts to wild-stock management will also be assessed, using hatchery survivals as a regional surrogate for wild-stock survivals.
