University of Washington Salmon runs are notoriously variable: strong one year, and weak the next. New research shows that the same may be true from one century to the next. Scientists in the past 20 years have recognized that salmon stocks vary not only year to year, but also on decades-long time cycles. One example is the 30-year to 80-year booms and busts in salmon runs in Alaska and on the West Coast driven by the climate pattern known as the Pacific Decadal Oscillation. Now work...

Be careful what you eat, says University of Notre Dame stream ecologist Gary Lamberti. If you're catching and eating fish from a Lake Michigan tributary with a strong salmon run, the stream fish – brook trout, brown trout, panfish – may be contaminated by pollutants carried in by the salmon. Research by Lamberti, professor and chair of biology, and his laboratory has revealed that salmon, as they travel upstream to spawn and die, carry industrial pollutants into Great Lakes...
