Jose Maria (Lobo) Orensanz: 1945-2015
 
It is with profound sadness that we write to tell that our dear friend and colleague, Lobo Orensanz, died at his home in Puerto Madryn, Argentina on January 5, 2015. If any solace can be found in this tragic news it is to know that Lobo was packing a van for a field trip with his wonderful wife Ana Parma and other family to savor the natural history of their Patagonian coast….that was what Lobo loved so much, and he died anticipating another expedition of science and joy that marked his character and his life.

TODAY: Seminar with Andre Punt

4:30 pm, Fishery Sciences Auditorium
Is it easier to manage marine mammals than fisheries? Tails of successes
Abstract
Uncertainty in fisheries management is pervasive. It has often been stated that “counting fish is like counting trees, except trees don’t move and you can see them”. Managers of fisheries and commercial and aboriginal whaling both aim to achieve a balance between conservation and utilization.

TODAY! Seminar with Ed Farley

Salmon Ocean Ecology Research at Auke Bay Laboratories
This presentation will highlight the current salmon ocean ecology research activities that Auke Bay Laboratories scientists are participating in within the Gulf of Alaska eastern Bering Sea.  These highlights include: connecting early marine ecology of pink salmon in southeastern Alaska to future forecasts of adult returns; understanding how varying ocean conditions during summer in the eastern Gulf of Alaska may impact survival of Columbia River Chinook; connecting climate variability in the eastern Bering Sea to juvenile Bristol Bay growth and overwinter survival; linking ocean conditions in the northern Bering Sea to Yukon River Chinook salmon distribution and growth as well as juvenile Chinook salmon abundance to future returns to the Yukon River; connecting ‘real time’ climate data and ocean conditions to run timing of adult Yukon River Chinook salmon.
