Scientists mix salmon stocks to learn about their survival
By Kate Golden
Juneau, Alaska (AP)
In a small, cold room next to Auke Creek, two women are two-thirds of the way through clipping the fins of 50,000 inch-long pink salmon fry. These humpies in the current batch aren’t wriggling; they’ve been bathed in an anesthetic. After their surgeries, they’ll be released into the wild next week to swim free.
If all goes as planned, perhaps 1 percent, or 500 full-grown fish, will return next summer.
