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.
