SAFS in the News: Most Valuable Salmon Fishery in the World

SAFS faculty Tom Quinn and Ray Hilborn are featured on CNN Politics:
‘This is the most valuable wild salmon fishery in the world
Under the Trump administration, it could become a mine.

This year, 56 million sockeye salmon swam hundreds of miles from the ocean toward the rivers and streams of the Bristol Bay watershed in southwest Alaska.

Many that escaped fishermen and bears leapt over waterfalls and used a mysterious combination of the Earth’s magnetic field and their own sensory memories to locate the exact streams where they were born — and then spawned, made gravel nests for their young, and died.
