Here’s a photographic update from Heidi Golden of the FishScape Team, which is studying the movement of Arctic grayling populations throughout the northern Alaskan landscape. The team is tracking several genetically distinct grayling populations, and is interested in the fishes’ performance in watersheds that differ in temperature, aquatic connectivity, and sensitivity to climate change. The FishScape Team is led by scientists from the Marine Biological Laboratory (Linda Deegan and Cameron MacKenzie) and University of Connecticut-Storrs (Mark Urban and Golden).
