Statistics Coho (Silver) Salmon Oncorhynchus kisutch Other names: silver Average size: lbs, up to 31 lbs Coho salmon are a very popular sport fish in the Puget Sound. The species uses coastal streams and tributaries; often being present in small neighborhood streams. Empirical relationships between watershed characteristics and coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) smolt abundance in 14 western Washington streams Coho smolt production in ten.

Scientists say low marine survival rates threaten Puget Sound coho salmon populations. A article in the journal Marine and Coastal Fisheries reports that wild cohos in the Salish Sea had higher smolt survival rates over a 30 year period than hatchery coho salmon. Smolt survival in the Strait of Georgia during that time declined faster than it did in Puget Sound.

Box 59 Portland, OR April The size of coho salmon adults in Puget Sound/Strait of Georgia is declining at a much faster rate than in other areas ().Coho salmon caught in in-river fisheries in Puget Sound decreased in weight by about 50% between andfrom average weights of approximately 4 kg to about 2 kg ().Whether the size of naturally spawning coho salmon in Puget Sound is also declining is.

The Coho that we have been seeing have been a bit on the smallish side with the average fish in the 3 - 6 pound range with an occasional fish up to around 11 pounds, with those being few and far between. Thecoho salmon bound for the Columbia River also account for a significant portion of the ocean catch.

Puget Sound. Coho and pink salmon returns to Puget Sound are expected to be strong this year. Aboutcoho are forecast to return to Puget Sound streams, aboutmore fish than last year’s forecast.

Smolt Plants: In there wherewinter-run steelhead smolts released summer-run smolts released. The majority of the adult returns from these releases are expected during the winter and summer seasons. Hatchery coho are an appropriate surrogate for wild coho given that field observations have documented the mortality syndrome in spawners of both wild and hatchery origins (Scholz et al.
