Part 4: At the Water's Edge Lecture Series

THE NEARSHORE & JUVENILE CHINOOK SALMON

Wednes­day Nov. 28th 6:00–7:00pm at the Grange Hall (152 First ST Fri­day Harbor)

What time of the year and how long are juve­nile Chi­nook present in the nearshore envi­ron­ment of the San Juan arch­i­pel­ago? Amidst which shore­line types are they most like­ly to be found? What riv­er or stock are these juve­nile Chi­nook orig­i­nat­ing from?
To answer these ques­tions, a study took place through­out the San Juans in 2008 and 2009. Work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly with many local part­ners, includ­ing vol­un­teer cit­i­zens and our WRIA 2 Salmon Recov­ery Pro­gram, salmon biol­o­gists Eric Beam­er and Kurt Fresh con­duct­ed beach seine field work.
In his lec­ture Eric Beam­er will pro­vide insight into the pres­ence and ori­gin of juve­nile Chi­nook salmon with­in the shore­line habi­tats of our arch­i­pel­ago. Shore­line Plan­ners and Man­agers have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to uti­lize these find­ings in the effort to recov­er and pro­tect Chi­nook salmon.
Eric Beam­er is the Research Direc­tor with Skag­it Riv­er Sys­tem Coop­er­a­tive (the nat­ur­al resources arm of the Swinomish and Sauk-Suiat­tle tribes). His part­ner in this study, Kurt Fresh is the Estu­ar­ine and Ocean Ecol­o­gy Pro­gram Direc­tor with North­west Fish­eries Sci­ence Cen­ter. They each thank all the indi­vid­u­als who showed up on the beach, in all kinds of weath­er, to help gath­er the nets and doc­u­ment the data.
