Kline) and our own Jeff Heindel, Fisheries Biologist, for their paper ”Evaluating Artificial Propagation Release Strategies for Recovering Endangered Snake River Sockeye Salmon” on being recognized as the Best Paper in the North American Journal of Aquaculture (NAJA) for 2020!
One of the American Fisheries Society’s five international peer-reviewed journals, NAJA carries papers on new research and practical experience in all areas of intensive and extensive #fishculture.
The recognized paper focuses on the recovery efforts towards the US Endangered Species Act-listed Snake River Sockeye Salmon and outlines the Snake River Sockeye Salmon Captive Broodstock Program. This program works to support and grow the population of this endangered fish species.
