OLLI: HIS-11 History of Alaska Salmon Research, 1889–1955

ID : 7806   
« back to classes page
From the start of commercial salmon fishing in Alaska in the 1880s, scientists and government regulators endeavored to understand the mysterious fish. The knowledge produced by fisheries biologists, at a time when they knew very little about the salmon’s life cycle and migratory habits, influenced how Alaskans interacted with the ocean environment. This class focuses on the history of salmon research and the scientists who founded the field.
