the Chum Outmigration Project

the Chum Outmigration Project

Jan. 1st 2020 – May 31st 2020

The Chum Outmigration Project is a critical part of our salmon restoration efforts in the Hood Canal. This is complimentary research to our Summer Chum Project. By researching the full life cycle, we will find indicators about the stability of that salmon run, as well as make informed decisions on how to help restore this ESA threatened species.

As a volunteer you will assist HCSEG staff and interns to conduct juvenile screw trap checks and learn about fish sampling protocols. All waders/boots/equipment will be provided!

Please plan to meet at the Salmon Center (600 NE Roessel Rd., Belfair) at 9AM for departure.
