2012 Alaska Chinook Salmon Symposium Overview
The Alaska Department of Fish & Game will host a scientific symposium in Anchorage, Alaska, October 22nd & 23rd 2012.
The symposium will take place at the Egan Center’s LaPerouse Hall from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on both days.
The symposium will feature scientific presentations and panel discussions from a wide variety of experts from private, state, federal, and academic backgrounds. The goal is to discuss gaps in knowledge of Chinook salmon abundance and productivity, and assemble a targeted list of research priorities to fill these gaps.
A draft analysis of knowledge gaps has been constructed by ADF&G scientists and will be made available prior to the symposium so the presenters, panelists, and the public will have the chance to review and provide constructive input on the research recommendations.
More details about this event will be forthcoming in the first weeks of October.
