Chinook salmon roe on the bank of Tubutulik River.

Our goal is to protect Alaska’s genetic resources by protecting the genetic integrity of wild populations.

  • Identify the best broodstock for a hatchery
  • Guide the release of hatchery-reared salmon and marine species
  • Restrict the transfer of salmon between river drainages
