The importance of sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka to commercial and subsistence fisheries around the Pacific Rim has led to over a century of research on their evolution and ecology. This volume compiles 12 manuscripts or extended abstracts from the 2005 symposium “Sockeye Salmon Ecology, Evolution, Life History, and Management” in Anchorage, Alaska. Exciting work in all four major themes is included. 11 full-color pages.
