dc.description.abstractMigration and spawning stream selection of maturing pink salmon in the area of Gastineau Channel was studied with respect to: (1) homing of individuals tagged with coded-wire as emergent fry; (2) intermingling and subsequent spawning locus of adults tagged at stream mouths; (3) migratory pathways into Gastineau Channel of fish tagged at north and south entrances; and (4) effects of stress (capture, handling and tagging) on pre-spawning adults in their natal stream on subsequent homing or straying. (1) wire-tagged adults did not stray from two natal streams; (2) of 681 adults marked at stream mouths, 308 were recovered locally, demonstrating complex stock assemblages at some stream mouths and homogeneity at others; (3) of 949 adults tagged at entrances, 300 were recovered locally demonstrating intermingling of stocks at both entrances and differences in the proportions of each stock at each entrance; (4) stress induced straying (2%) from a natal to another stream one kilometer distant.en_US
