Popular Science Covers BBRSDA-Funded Research

Popular Science recently covered a cutting-edge research project funded by BBRSDA on its website (article link). This on-going study is being conducted by researchers from the University of Washington and uses analyses of strontium isotopes in sockeye ear bones (otoliths) to map where the fish are spending their time during the fresh-water portion of their life cycle. Check out the PopSci article and if you’d like to learn more about the study, you can read the project report from the initial study conducted in 2014 and 2015 on our ‘Project Reports’ page.
