State of the Salmon


The State of the Salmon is an annual scientific conference which brings together scientists from around the region for a multiday conference dedicated to wild salmon and steelhead, and the issues they face. This years conference is being held in Portland May 4-7, this years topic is Ecological Interactions between Wild & Hatchery Salmon. Ecological impacts of hatchery programs on wild stocks are only beginning to be appreciated by managers and very little work has gone into understanding the nature and magnitude of these impacts, there should be some fascinating talks. More information at their website:
