Before the University of Alaska existed, researchers from the University of Washington School of Aquatics and Fisheries Science began collecting data on Bristol Bay salmon. Today over 50 percent of the world’s salmon population resides in Alaska’s Bristol Bay, an exquisite landscape of interwoven waters reaching across 12,000 square miles.
In 2010 University of Washington professors, Daniel Schindler and Thomas Quinn co-authored a landmark study Bristol Bay salmon habitat. This week on Addressing Alaskans, listen to their joint lecture at the 2011 Southwest Alaska Salmon Science Symposium on the health and diversity of Bristol Bay salmon.
