Salmon IGF values (Marine growth of salmon)

Metadata Updated: March 11, 2021

This is a catch-all placeholder for on-going, completed, and future projects assessing marine growth of juvenile salmon using measures of the hormone IGF1. This work is conducted from California through Oregon, Washington, BC and Alaska. The work has been supported by Bonneville Power (see juvenile salmon ocean ecology and Columbia River Plume (actually the same project)) since 2000 (~$83k/year), BIOP since 2006 (~$75k/year), the Pacific Salmon Commission (2007 - 2008, $43k/year), NOAA FATE (2009 - 2010, $100k/year) and recently received a new grant from the Pacific Salmon Commission (2012 - 2014, $57k/year).

A proposal with the North Pacific Research Board for work in Alaska is pending. The overall goals of the project are to elucidate the marine ecology of juvenile salmon in the Pacific Ocean, and to develop salmon growth as an ecosystem indicator for the NE Pacific, including the California Current. This database listing is incomplete, and current budget numbers for BIOP (FY12) and PSC (FY12) are not in the system and preclude adding budget details. The data inventory page is confusing; it is difficult to discern what is actually being asked for. This consists of a salmon ID number from a research survey and an IGF value measured from that fish. This data becomes more useful when other attributes of the salmon (species, size, genetics) and the sampling location (lat, long, temp, sal) are included. Currently there is data from approximately 30 surveys scattered among various Excel spreadsheets with differing amounts of ancillary data depending on how thoroughly the data has been worked up for reports or presentations.
