Resistance of naturally spawned pink salmon eggs to mechanical shock

John Thedinga, Mark Carls, Jacek Maselko, Ronald Heintz &
Routine hydraulic sampling of pink salmon eggs (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) is the subject of a long-running dispute over impacts of the Exxon Valdez oil spill on embryo survival in Prince William Sound, Alaska, because relationships between the time of spawning, sensitivity of eggs to mechanical damage, and sample timing were unclear. Previous laboratory or hatchery studies demonstrate that resistance of eggs to mechanical damage increases with maturity, but applicability to natural populations requires an understanding of...
