Chinook News cover

Chinook News is designed in newspaper format to highlight the major issues surrounding Chinook salmon in Alaska while giving the reader an overview of what the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) is doing to understand and sustainably manage this important resource.

Weak Chinook salmon runs have impacted cultural patterns of food gathering, sport opportunities, and commercial economic activity, and the State of Alaska launched the Chinook Salmon Research Initiative in 2012 to further explore and address the causes for the down turn in production. Top fishery scientists in Alaska produced the research plan now being implemented by nearly 200 ADF&G staff working on 35 projects funded by the Alaska Legislature.

ADF&G is committed to keeping all Alaskans informed about this issue. Please visit our Chinook Salmon Research Initiative pages for more information.
