How UAS Contributes to the Best Salmon Data in the World

UAS Marine Biology undergraduate students are contributing to the longest running data set on wild Pacific salmon in existence, just steps from the UAS campus at the NOAA Auke Creek Research Station. Join us Thursday, Sept. 26th at 7 pm in the UAS Egan Lecture Hall in Juneau. Professor David Tallmon and student researchers will share findings from 40 years of historical data on the changes to salmon populations collected at the Auke Creek Fish Weir, how that affects our community’s ecology and economy, and will discuss the future of fisheries in Alaska.
