WHAT WE DO
Our program focuses on all aspects of the ecology and evolution of Pacific salmon in the watersheds of western Alaska, the Bering Sea, and the Gulf of Alaska. We actively pursue discovery science in an era of rapid global change to produce data and knowledge for managing and conserving regional ecosystems and their fisheries, and provides insights relevant to fisheries and watershed management across the globe. Our educational mission provides research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, and we seek to engage with regional K-12 programs, other citizens, and management agencies to improve our collective understanding of these remarkable ecosystems.
