Does Over-Escapement Cause Salmon Stock Collapse?
Publish Date: 2016/01/11

This report looked at all available information from British Columbia on whether large spawning populations that exceeded “normal”, target or historical numbers, were followed by stock collapses. There was evidence that there was a levelling-off of salmon production for runs having a high escapement, but there was no evidence of over-escapement causing stock collapse.
