In 2005, University of Washington School of Aquatics and Fishery Science professor Thomas Quinn released his book, The Behavior and Ecology of Pacific Salmon and Trout, to fill what he saw to be a void between the highly technical and detailed scientific literature and engaging coffee table books with beautiful photos — but little scientific content. Discussing the basic behavior and ecology of these incredible fishes, his writing conveyed the importance of salmon and trout to both the people and the natural world along the Pacific Rim.Read more
The updated version, contains brand new photos and information about the life cycles of these marvelous fish in freshwater and marine environments.Read more

SAFS Professor Chelsea Wood was awarded a Sloan Fellowship, awarded to early-career researchers in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field. Prof. Wood is a prolific researcher who uses parasites and pathogens (both human and fish-based) to uncover fundamental ecological truths about the natural world. She will receive $65,000 to further her research initiatives, which includes using museum fish specimens as “parasite time capsules”, as reported in UW News.Read more
The recipient will be awarded with a 2-6 month collaborative visit to SAFS beginning in summer 2018, which covers travel, housing, research supplies and a modest stipend each month, for a total value of up to $29,000. The award honors the many lasting and excellent contributions of Prof Kenneth K. Chew to aquaculture. More details are available here: https://catalyst.uw.edu/workspace/sr320/29938/198514.Read more
