Collaboration and partnership

The Alaska Salmon and People project is comprised of nine main working groups, each of which draw on the collective experience of diverse researchers, cultural leaders, and other salmon experts to better understand the complex and inherently multidisciplinary nature of Alaska’s salmon systems.

Biological, Governance and Social Issues for Salmon and People

Statewide ‘Synthesis Groups’ take a broadscale approach to understanding Alaska’s salmon and salmon communities. The knowledge and data acquired are compiled together and presented for each of 13 major watersheds and fisheries in the Region section.
