Instructor Angie Bowers and her first cohort of aquaculture students have just wrapped the inaugural Aquaculture Semester for the Sitka campus. These students traveled from all over the country to experience fisheries in Southeast Alaska, and earn 13-credits of hands-on experience in the field.
A new semester-long program at the University of Alaska Southeast will provide hands-on, in-person training to students from around the state and the country who are interested in pursuing aquaculture as a career. UAS Fisheries Technology professor Angie Bowers joined KCAW's Erin Fulton on the Morning Interview to talk about the program and how prospective students can join.
Some minor vandalism at a downtown Sitka fish hatchery over the weekend created major trauma for some juvenile coho salmon. The Sitka Sound Science Center reports losing 1,000 coho smolt in the incident, just days before they were to be released into the ocean.
Angie Bowers will be teaching a Salmon Culture Lab October 26th - 28th at the Sitka Sound Science Center. The class is offered through the University of Alaska Southeast's Fisheries Technology Program.
