Support ASP research and the land we study


I recently entered a small video contest in order to promote Iliamna Lake in Southwest Alaska which is one of the research areas of the Alaska Salmon Program. If it wins it would help fund some of our future research in that area.

If you get a moment, check out the video and give it a vote! It’s really easy. 

SAFS in the News: Narwhals, Tusked Whales of the Arctic, See With Sound. Really Well.

SAFS professor Kristin Laidre is featured in the New York Times:
