The 1994 abundance of Pacific Herring Clupea pallasi in the Kamishak Bay District of Lower Cook Inlet, Alaska, was forecasted for the first time from an age structured analysis model. This model estimates values of survival, maturity, gear selectivity, and initial population abundance that minimize differences between predicted and observed age com...

The 1992 Togiak District spawning migration consisted of 483 million Pacific herring Clupea pallasi weighing 156,955 tons. A total of 27,756 tons were harvested by the inshore sac roe fishery and Dutch Harbor food and bait fishery. The 1993 forecast represents the first year an age-structured analysis, using fishery and run biomass age compositions...

... Whether this was due to the viral infection mentioned above or ENSO conditions is unknown. In Kamishak Bay, near Kodiak Island, the results are somewhat different, with average to above-average mean weight-at-age in 1992, but below-average weight-at-age in 1993 (from data in Yuen et al. 1994). Trends can be removed from these data (and those following) by first- 1979 1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 Year Figure 15. ...
... Perception used here refers to a belief in the accuracy of information. Where harvest can be sufficiently sampled for age structure and auxiliary information is available, catch-age analysis (Deriso et al. 1985;Funk et al. 1992) can be a useful analytical tool for modeling the interaction of the fish stock with a recreational fishery. We use this tool with the humpback whitefish (Coregonus pidschian) population in the Chatanika River, Alaska, which is subject to a recreational spear fishery. ...
