Holding a Chinook Salmon

Detailed Description

Carson Pritchard (left), a former GLSC contractor and 4-H camp counselor, shows off a Great Lakes Chinook salmon with a 4-H camper. Alewife are the primary forage of Chinook salmon. Consequently, understanding alewife age dynamics helps fishery managers balance predator numbers with the available prey. This photo was taken in 2018, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
