Data from: Timing is everything: fishing‐season placement may represent the most important angling‐induced evolutionary pressure on Atlantic salmon populations

Alison C. Harvey, Yongkai Tang, Vidar Wennevik, Øystein Skaala & Kevin A. Glover
Fisheries‐induced evolution can change the trajectory of wild fish populations by selectively targeting certain phenotypes. For important fish species like Atlantic salmon, this could have large implications for their conservation and management. Most salmon rivers are managed by specifying an angling season of predetermined length based on population demography, which is typically established from catch statistics. Given the circularity of using catch statistics to estimate demographic parameters, it may be difficult to quantify the selective...
