Abstract : Accurate values for survival of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) are necessary for effective management of the species, particularly in areas with active restoration efforts. The steelhead (S. gairdneri) is a species close to the Atlantic salmon, in both life history and taxonomy. Comparison of survival estimates at different life stages can be informative. The data available on survival in freshwater and saltwater is scattered among technical reports, scientific papers, and unpublished records. This report summarizes much of this material in a comparative synopsis by life stages. Though not intended to be a complete life history compendium, it presents the available information in a single report.
