- ... Following interactions with fisheries gear, fishes may experience delayed mortality or display modified behavior. The physiological status of fish at the time of capture, including the presence of infectious agents, can also influence survival outcomes. To explore the relationship between capture, infectious agents and fate, we simulated gillnet capture on adult salmon returning to a hatchery, use ...

- ... Animal migrations are costly and are often characterized by high predation risk for individuals. Three of the most oft‐assumed mechanisms for reducing risk for migrants are swamping predators with high densities, specific timing of migrations and increased body size. Assessing the relative importance of these mechanisms in reducing predation risk particularly for migrants is generally lacking due ...
