    Migration distance refers to the approximate in-river distance a salmon stock would migrate to reach its natal spawning ground

    Mass, fork length and cross-sectional area of fish are presented as means± S.E.M.

    Most fish were tested at their ambient water temperature and this information is presented as both a mean value ± S.E.M. and a range. Fish were also tested at an adjusted temperature and these temperatures are presented as a range because they were both higher and lower than the ambient temperature
