State conducts king research

As a part of the Chinook Salmon Research Initiative, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game is looking at the genetic stock composition of the marine king salmon fishery. There are port samplers stationed at the Homer Harbor, and Deep Creek and Anchor Point tractor launches conducting quick interviews and collecting biological information, scales and genetic clips from sport-caught king salmon. If you fished for king salmon in Cook Inlet, regardless of success, these folks want to talk to you. For more information on the project, see
