Great weekend of CZO science at the Eel River

Great weekend of CZO science at the Eel River

The Eel River Critical Zone Observatory hosted an all-CZO site visit this past weekend. It was a great opportunity to showcase the important science emerging from the Eel River CZO and to make connections with researchers from the other CZOs. Our piece involves exploring how flow magnitude, timing, and temperature influence fish performance. Hosting 53 people involved a lot of coordination and logistical cartwheels, but the visit was a resounding success! So proud to be associated with this amazing group!

Carlson Lab attends American Fisheries Society meeting in Tampa, Florida

The Carlson Lab traveled to Tampa this week for the national meeting of American Fisheries Society. Six of us presented new research results and received great feedback from the AFS community. Stephanie co-organized a session with Mike Kinnison on “Darwinian Fisheries Science”. All in all, it was a great week with a lot of interesting science and opportunities to connect with the fisheries community. And we even took a break to enjoy the eclipse!

Winter-run Chinook tour!

Together with new Delta Science Postdoc Fellow, Pedro Morais, and his Practitioner Mentor, Dr. Rachel Johnson, we spent two days touring winter-run Chinook habitat and meeting the agency scientists tasked with monitoring the trends of this endangered population and operating the associated conservation hatchery program at the Livingston Stone National Fish Hatchery. Thank you, Rachel Johnson, for organizing the tour!
