This project aims to quantify the spatial and temporal variability of the physical, chemical, and biological properties of the coastal oceans from BC to SE Alaska, defined as Coastal Ocean Biogeochemical Provinces (COBPs), along the main migration route of different species of juvenile salmon. Analysis will incorporate satellite products from the past two decades, in situ sampling from vessels of opportunity, research cruises, cabled observatories, aquaculture industry surveys, citizen science, and oceanographic and riverine archived data. The outcomes of this project will be translated into actions that impact management practices by the government, industry, and other organization.
