Extreme heat and salmon health on the Koyukuk

Stephanie Quinn-Davidson, Director of the Yukon River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission


The extreme heat event in early July had far reaching impacts across the state of Alaska. This presentation will provide a brief overview of the observed Yukon River chum salmon die-off event, primarily on the Koyukuk River, which coincided with the record temperatures. The die-off was initially reported by social media and then corroborated by local monitoring, followed by a more official survey by fisheries scientists from our organization, ADFG, and UAF.
