2011 Alaska Salmon Program Science Symposium (and summer course!)

Please join the Alaska Salmon Program for our 2011 Science Symposium

Wednesday, December 7, 2011
2:30 ~ 5:30 pm
Fishery Sciences Building (FSH) – 1122 NE Boat St.
Room 102 (auditorium)

This annual symposium showcases the research of the UW School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences’ Alaska Salmon Program undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff and visiting scientists.  Our program focuses on all aspects of the ecology of Pacific salmon in the North Pacific, Bering Sea, and watersheds of Southwest Alaska.  Participants will give brief talks sharing their research in both basic and applied ecology, as well as the biological and socioeconomic management of Alaskan fisheries. For a symposium schedule, which should be posted by Dec 1, and general program information please go to: http://fish.washington.edu/research/alaska/.

We also teach a 6 week summer undergraduate field course, Aquatic Ecological Research in Alaska (FSH 491 – taught by Tom Quinn, Daniel Schindler, and Ray Hilborn).  If you are interested in spending 6 weeks studying pristine and remote Alaska sockeye salmon ecosystems, please consider attending this symposium to learn more about our research program.

Please feel free to come for whatever part of the afternoon you are available.  We hope to see you there!
