‘One of Alaska’s most abundant freshwater fish species is altering its breeding patterns in response to climate change. This could impact the ecology of northern lakes, which already acutely feel the effects of a changing climate.
That’s the main finding of a recent University of Washington study published in Global Change Biology that analyzed reproductive patterns of three-spine stickleback fish over half a century in Alaska’s Bristol Bay region.
SAFS grad Timothy Cline and SAFS professors Daniel Schindler and Ray Hilborn are featured in UW Today:
‘Fishing communities can survive ― and even thrive ― as fish abundance and market prices shift if they can catch a variety of species and nimbly move from one fishery to the next.
These findings, published Jan. 16 in Nature Communications, draw upon 34 years of data collected in more than 100 fishing communities in Alaska that depend on fishing for livelihoods, cultural traditions and daily subsistence.
REU program at WWU Shannon Point Marine Center
Gain hands-on experience doing marine science research on the beautiful waters of the Salish Sea.
The Shannon Point Marine Center is accepting applications for the 2017 Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. Program participants work one-on-one with faculty mentors studying themes related to productivity and nutrient cycling in local watershed systems; marine microbial ecology; physiology of symbiosis; larval development; physiology, ecology, and morphology of marine invertebrates; coastal oceanography; and chemical ecology.
Are you interested in the natural and cultural history of Costa Rica? Interested in a early Autumn study abroad experience? Join ESRM professors John Marzluff and Robert Tournay this September on an Exploration Seminar. A brief description of the expedition is below, but you can learn more at
Your application is due March 1.

‘The acidification of the ocean expected as seawater absorbs increasing amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere will reverberate through the West Coast’s marine food web, but not necessarily in the ways you might expect, new research shows.
Dungeness crabs, for example, will likely suffer as their food sources decline. Dungeness crab fisheries valued at about $220 million annually may face a strong downturn over the next 50 years, according to the research published Jan.
