Responses of salmon to habitat restoration in Puget Sound

Posted on: 02/09/2023
Research Area(s): Internships / Research

Summary / Description

In Puget Sound, efforts from many agencies (e.g., tribes, local, state and federal government) have made headway in creating restoration projects to benefit listed populations of Pacific salmon. These efforts have proceeded for over 30 years, but our knowledge of the benefits of these efforts are still limited. We are seeking a student who is willing to assist with field monitoring for fish as well as contribute to ongoing research efforts to document benefits of restoration for salmon populations. This internship will involve data collection in the field, measuring individual fish, literature searches, data management, analysis, and writing of project results.

Skills Required

Prospective students should:

  • Have an avid interest in fish ecology and working outside.
  • Be comfortable working with a network of collaborators.
  • Be familiar with boat safety and be comfortable working on small boats.
  • Experience working in Excel, Word, and statistical/graphics programming in R.
