  • Chinook Salmon Research Initiative
    The Chinook Salmon Research Initiative was created in response to declines in returns of Chinook salmon to many Alaska rivers. The result of collaboration between ADF&G, federal agencies, and academic partners on this issue has been the development of the Chinook Salmon Stock Assessment and Research Plan.
  • Fish Counts
    The department, federal agencies, and nongovernment organizations operate counting projects to count the numbers of migrating fish (primarily salmon), using weirs, sonars and counting towers in a number of streams throughout Alaska.
  • Invasive Species
  • Sonar Programs
    The Alaska Department of Fish and Game relies on its Fisheries Sonar Program to provide timely information about salmon run strength.
