June 2013 Salmon Survey Underway!

June 20, 2014:  Our researchers just left for sea to conduct oceanographic surveys in order to answer questions on the ecological effects of the Columbia Plume on our fisheries.  


For those of you new to the survey, the plan is to conduct physical and biological sampling at 6-8 stations on each of 8 transects, that are spread out from the northern tip of WA to central OR.  If you are inspired enough to locate the transect that are mentioned, they are so named relative to geographical features on the coast line.  The survey is scheduled as below:

June 20: Father and Son 
June 21: La Push 
June 22: Queets River 
June 23: Grays Harbor 
June 24: Willapa Bay 
June 25: Columbia River 
June 26: Cape Meares 
June 27: Newport 
June 28: port in Astoria
