volunteers collect 20 km of new fish habitat data

At the close of the 2014 Salmon Blitz season, citizen scientists have collected almost 50 km of new data that will be nominated to the State of Alaska's Anadromous Waters Catalog.

measuring fishSalmon Blitz partners are excited to celebrate a successful 2014 field season thanks to the effort of 128 volunteers who helped to assess 19 streams throughout the Copper River watershed. Just over twenty kilometers of fish data resulted from these surveys, including 12.4 km of streams that were not previously listed in the Anadromous Waters Catalog. During 2014 we were also pleased to receive a generous grant from the North Pacific Research Board that will extend Salmon Blitz survey efforts through 2016.
