Our Alaska blackfish student research project is progressing well, we have identified a pond in the Goldstream Valley where blackfish can be readily caught and have caught and fin-clipped a small sample of fish. The next step is marking a larger sample and conducting a recapture survey.
This month we will be doing burbot setlining trips for those students that are interested.
We will discuss another ice fishing outing with the Wildlife Society at our next subunit meeting in March. Hopefully we can capture a small grayling or trout on this trip to stock into our AFS aquarium since our grayling expired last semester.
Also on the horizon--the annual AFS Student Symposium in April. If you have research you would like to present or a talk you would like to practice, please consider participating in this event!
