Mendenhall Fireside Lectures: Salmon Streaming Services, Counting on Cameras to Help us Count Fish

Counting the number of salmon that return to spawn has long been an important part of fisheries management. Now with the help of underwater video cameras, long-range Wi-Fi, and a whole bunch of zip ties, it's a little bit easier. Take a peek under the surface and join Forest Service biologist Jake Musslewhite as he details the development and remote monitoring of video weirs on the Tongass National Forest. 

The annual Fireside Lectures are a free, twelve-week series of hour-long, public presentations every Friday evening at 7 p.m. AKST, from January to March. This year the presentations will return to their usual in-person setting, with an accompanying virtual livestream here on Facebook. No tickets are necessary. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. For an accessible copy of the 2023 Fireside Lecture Series schedule, please call the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center at (907)-789-0097 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. or email amber.debardelaben@usda.gov.
