A key component of the program goal of the Arctic-Yukon-Kuskokwim Sustainable Salmon Initiative (AYK SSI) is to “..understand the trends and causes of variation in abundance and fisheries...” of Pacific salmon(AYK SSI 2006). To achieve this goal, information concerning population biology, freshwater ecology, marine ecology, and population dynamics is needed to understand the variables controlling population abundance and trends. The papers in this section were selected to address these topics and divided into two broad habitat-based themes: freshwater and marine.
