Salmon born in hatcheries are different at DNA level than wild salmon in hundreds of ways (Newsweek)

A 2011 Oregon State University study found that fish born in hatcheries become domesticated in as little as a generation. Adapting to captivity so quickly affects their ability to successfully reproduce in the wild, the study’s lead researcher Michael Blouin reasoned. (see also Slash Gear, KTVZ)

Herpes-like virus emerges in stressed-out coral reefs (Discover Magazine)

While examining samples taken from the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, researchers from Oregon State University happened to observe coral as it went through a bleaching event. The team noticed that viral populations on the coral multiplied after samples had turned white. One of viruses described by researchers in the journal Frontiers in Microbiology  is morphologically similar to the herpes virus that affects humans and other animals. (see also Quartz)

Global list of water-related conflicts grows (Desert Sun)

Some scientists have quibbled with the researchers’ approach to estimating and describing water scarcity. The study, which was published in the journal Science Advances, doesn’t include the use of groundwater that is pumped in excess of “renewable” amounts, said Michael Campana, a professor at Oregon State University who was not involved in the research. When that piece is left out, he said, “it makes the scarcity number looks worse than it is.”

Whiskey review: Tualatin Valley Oregon single malt (Whiskey Wash)

Mecca Grade Estate Malt, Tualatin Valley’s source for Oregon barley malt, is one of a handful of new craft malteries popping up around the United States. Mecca Grade is unique in that they grow all of their own barley on an eighth-generation family farm in central Oregon. In partnership with Oregon State University’s Barley breeding program, Mecca Grade grows a unique variety of barley called ‘Full Pint,’ which was specifically designed for the craft brewing industry. While their malts have been adopted with enthusiasm by West Coast craft brewers, this might be the first whiskey made entirely with Mecca Grade’s Full Pint malt.

OSU brewing archives acquires Eckhardt papers (Gazette-Times)
