Two graduate students from Kamchatka will participate in a training course in Alaska
Beginning on July 23 until August 7, the students from Kamchatka will attend lectures of the leading specialists in Pacific salmon biology and marine resource management. Scientists from University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) and University of Washington (UW) will conduct classes and workshops for future fish biologists.
International summer training on Pacific salmon takes place at Aleknagik Lake for the third time. The lake hosts the UW’s field camp and research station. There is everything what the students need to monitor fish in the wild. The station has classrooms with up-to-date technical equipment, laboratories for scientific studies.
A group of scientists from Kamchatka and Alaska will write the textbook later this year. First, they need to gather all necessary data and share mutual experience in salmon biology and fishery management.
