About Us


Salmon-Net seeks to highlight research and catalyze collaboration on emerging science and conservation issues in wild Pacific salmon ecosystems.

Our scope is broad: we cover topics ranging from salmon ecology and evolution to watershed ecology, climate change, salmon economics and management, and land-use change.

What We Offer

This collaborative project involves investigators from the University of Washington, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Simon Fraser University and our partners, with funding from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.

The Salmon-Net website is an information portal that we hope will be useful to the broad range of people and organizations involved in the conservation and management of Pacific salmon and their ecosystems. Our offerings include:

  • Accessible Science Spotlights (in English and Russian) that highlight new science from noteworthy peer-reviewed literature. We have purchased open access rights to offer public access to original research articles.
  • Supporting resources including presentation slides, photographs, and media links related to the featured science.
  • Meetings and working groups focused on scientific needs and ideas relevant to salmon conservation and management.

Pitch Your Ideas

We hope that you will both read and use the material posted on this site, as well as contribute your own ideas for material you’d like to see covered.

Ways for you to contribute to Salmon-Net include:

  • Nominate a paper for a Science Spotlight. Featured papers are either chosen by the Salmon-Net team, or have been nominated by someone in our broader community. If you would like to see a particular paper featured next, please contact us!
  • Suggest an idea for a working group or meeting. Working on a pressing conservation or management issue? Contact us to inquire about workshop support. We will consider all ideas, and let you know how we can help.
