Wait, M., T. Buehrens, and B. Trim. 2007. West Whidbey Nearshore Fish Use Assessment, 2005-2006. Prepared for The Salmon Recovery Funding Board, Wild Fish Conservancy, and the Bowdoin College Doherty Coastal Studies Fellowship, by Wild Fish Conservancy, Seattle, WA. 128 pp.

Notes

  • No increase in density with proximity to natal delta
  • Majority of Chinook from Whidbey Basin or Samish sub-populations
  • Highest density observed between Bush Point and Ebey's Landing.
  • Chum had the longest period of presence. There was some weak correlation of chum density with points, deeper water and high kelp (low varieties) cover.
  • Chinook were mostly older fish, appearing later in the season than in Whidbey Basin, and had higher catch at locations with tidal discharge from marsh.
  • The author suggests that diversity of the habitat mosaic supports nearshore species diversity.
