ANCHORAGE - The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is looking for proposals for salmon research.
The agency said it has more than $1 million in funding for salmon research, monitoring and management projects in the Arctic, Yukon and Kuskokwim region.
The first call for proposals will open this Friday when the agency will offer approximately $600,000 for salmon stock assessment and management projects. The agency is looking for proposals that could provide better escapement estimates and information on why king and chum salmon stocks have declined.
A second call for proposals is planned for late March.
