    individuals of the same species structure communities, which in turn shape the ecosystem, is the Pacific Salmon (Oncorhynchus). When people first think of salmon they do not necessarily think of how interconnected they are within ecosystems. Salmon play a huge role in the cycling of the biogeochemical nitrogen throughout the ecosystem. After salmon spawn they die and their bodies decompose along the riverbanks. As well, many salmon are also eaten by predators such as bears, who then carry and deposit the uneaten parts of the fish within the forest. The rich nutrients within the salmon along with the nitrogen is then deposited back into the forest floor and then continues to cycle throughout many ecosystems. The availability of nitrogen is a limiting factor to tree growth so this deposit also provides a positive benefit to the health of the forest. This process again shows how an individual being the salmon can be disconnected from landmasses in their riparian ecosystem and still be connected to other ecosystems through the cycling of the biogeochemical nitrogen. An article titled, “Preliminary Evaluation of the Use of Nitrogen Stable Isotope Ratios to Establish Escapement Levels for Pacific Salmon,” in the Fisheries journal (2011) stated that: Research over the last decade has established the ecological significance of the nutrients and organic matter deposited by Pacific salmon in the freshwater habitats where they spawn. A large proportion of the nitrogen in plants and…

  • Chinook Research Paper

    Over the last few decades, populations of Chinook – or King – Salmon have dropped to all time lows in Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula. Three years ago the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADFG) significantly tightened their restrictions on King Salmon fishing in general and particularly a type of fishing called setnetting (where fishermen employ large nets to catch massive quantities of fish). Since then the King Salmon numbers have been slowly rising to 24,000 fish last season and projections for…

  • Alaskan Salmon Analysis

    If I were to create a nature documentary, I would focus on the lifecycle and human-related difficulties of Alaskan salmon. This is because they are something I already have a fundamental understanding of due to my experience as both a recreational and commercial fisherman in Alaska. The documentary would be intended as an educational piece aimed at stimulating awareness and interest in salmon while also subtly advocating for greater protective measures on Alaska’s natural salmon runs. As such,…

    In the same way that humans catch diseases fish can too. Some diseases in this instance comparable to the black plague have had a terrible effect on the salmon population in specific regions. One of the most infamous diseases, the Ulcerative Dermal Necrosis, which is one that effected almost all the salmon in Scotland in the late 1970’s. In attempts to remove the parasite that was killing the fish, Scotland succumbed to loosing all the salmon in nearly over 20 Norwegian rivers. “The parasite,…
