The public is invited to join graduate students from the University of Alaska Fairbanks College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences as they present findings of their research on the ecology and management of Alaska salmon from noon-1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 at the Alaska State Museum.
“Fish Tales at Different Scales” will feature presentations and a panel discussion by UAF graduate students Doug Duncan and Lorna Wilson and Assistant Professor Anne Beaudreau. The talks will highlight current research on predators’ impacts on juvenile salmon in nearshore areas along the Juneau road system and factors affecting Chinook salmon growth in the ocean.
Meet the researchers and learn about their adventures at sea and in the laboratory, what they’ve learned so far and how the public can stay informed about their future findings. The talks will be held in the Museum’s new Earth Sciences / Science on a Sphere gallery. Admission to the event is free and light refreshments will be available.
