Trout Unlimited Alaska is hosting a chinook salmon panel Tuesday, Oct. 17, at 49th State Brewery in Anchorage, as an opportunity for the average Alaskan to sort out what trends have been occurring with regard to king salmon in recent years, to learn from the experts, and to see what we all might do in the future to retain this mainstay of Alaskan fishing.
Topics will include: The Board of Fish process and how it works, a look at how chinook populations around the state are faring, as well as what research is currently underway and what new research might be introduced or needed.
Panel members will include: Ed Jones, ADF&G Chinook Salmon Research Initiative Coordinator; Dr. Megan McPhee, University of Alaska, College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences; and Robert Ruffner, Alaska Board of Fish member. There will also be other members of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game staff on hand, and ample time for questions from the audience.
Trout Unlimited Alaska is planning to live stream the speakers via Facebook at the TU Alaska Facebook page:
