Aloha colleagues,
The Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center, in partnership with the Southwest Fisheries Science Center, will be conducting an EEZ-wide survey in Hawaii (main and northwestern Hawaiian Islands) for cetaceans in the summer and fall of 2017. The Hawaiian Islands Cetacean and Ecosystem Assessment Survey, or HICEAS, will take place on seven 25-30 day legs on 2 ships (R/Vs Oscar Sette and Reuben Lasker) from July to December 2017. 

Let’s Talk: drop-in consultation with counselor

Internship: 2017 USC Summer REU Program

Dear students,
Are you looking for a summer research internship studying ocean, coastal or environmental science? I invite you to check out the University of Southern California’s Summer REU program. Undergraduate students in this summer program spend 10 weeks (June 5 – August 11, 2017) at the Wrigley Marine Science Center on Catalina Island to conduct mentored summer research projects related to marine science. 

Undergraduate Research Opportunity Spring Quarter 2017

Hello SAFS Undergraduates:
Chris Grue is recruiting a select group of undergraduates from SAFS or SEFS to assist with the development of a functional predation test using Chinook salmon smolts and smallmouth bass to confirm the safety of a new herbicide for the control of Eurasian watermilfoil.  Students will assist with (contribute to)  the design of the test and validating the test using the facilities at the SAFS aquatic facility (hatchery).  

Job Posting: Beach Naturalist at the Environmental Science Center

SAFS in the News: Climate change prompts Alaska fish to change breeding behavior

SAFS post-doc Rachel Hovel and SAFS professor Tom Quinn are featured in UW Today:
‘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 in the News: Diversification key to resilient fishing communities

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. 

Internship: REU program at WWU Shannon Point Marine Center

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.
