Abstract

A general framework is presented that should enhance our understanding of how intrinsic factors, such as body size, and extrinsic factors, such as climate, affect the dynamics and demographics of fish populations. Effects of intrinsic factors, notably studies relating juvenile Atlantic salmon Salmo salar body size to their probability to return as an adult, are often context‐dependent and anecdotal, due to data constraints. By merit of its flexible specification, this framework should admit datasets with a range of situation‐specific nuances, collected using different approaches, and thereby deliver more general and robust findings for more effective population management.
