Title: Reproductive success of wild and hatchery steelhead: Lessons from DNA analysis

Description: This presentation will focus on two themes: (1) new and fascinating results drawn from recent student projects using DNA to determine the breeding biology and reproductive success of wild steelhead; and (2) new insights into interactions between wild and hatchery steelhead.


Tom Quinn is a Professor of Fishery and Aquatic Sciences at the University of Washington with a general interest in fish behavior and ecology, particularly migratory behavior, habitat requirements, and spawning behavior. His research blends a variety of field techniques including tagging, telemetry and direct observations, with appropriate laboratory experiments. Most but not all of my research deals with salmon and trout. He recently published a book titled "The behavior and ecology of Pacific Salmon and Trout.

Rich, Brian -

I wonder if these could be taped, then the videos sold with proceeds going to the cause? Moving from my beloved steelhead waters was one thing but it seems these meetings could be 'attended' via video?

How many FORUM members would take this video for a donation of say $20 to the Wild Steelhead Coalition?
