The Chinook Salmon Symposium starts today in Anchorage. The conference put on by The Alaska Department of Fish and Game will bring together state, federal and academic experts to talk about the state of Chinook salmon throughout Alaska.
The symposium brings together a bevy of scientists as well as state and federal officials to talk about one of Alaska’s most precious resources: the king salmon.
The Symposium is broken up into four parts: framing the issue of Chinook Salmon numbers, Chinook Stock Assessment in Alaska, the ecology of fish and finally the role of hatchery research and production.
The symposium is held at the Egan Convention Center in downtown Anchorage and goes through Wednesday afternoon.
