Alaska Scientists Say Salmon Declines Inevitable

...h being done at the University of Alaska Fairbanks suggests the changes in fish and shellfish abundance, called regime shifts, occur about every 20 years. It's been about that long since Alaska's salmon stocks rebounded from historic lows. Adkison says a regime shift might be under way, but it's still too ear...
