Abstract

Many UAS students have been involved in research projects at the Auke Creek weir, which is located adjacent to campus and operated by the National Marine Fisheries Service.  The weir temporarily blocks salmon and trout moving in and out of Auke Creek, which allows us to collect important data on the fish before releasing them to continue on their way.  Auke Creek salmon are migrating earlier and evolving as temperatures increase.  We have focused our recent research on factors affecting coho salmon abundances, pink salmon spawning, and on the use of eDNA to detect migrating salmon.  Students who have worked at the weir have been intimately involved in weir research and even published research papers.  The weir provides outstanding opportunities for our programs and students.
