Alaska Department of Fish and Game
Tracking Radio-tagged Kenai River King Salmon
If a spawning Kenai River king salmon kept a diary of its upstream migration it might look a little like the data collected in a recent Alaska Department of Fish and Game radio-tagging project. Follow ADF&G biologist Adam Reimer in this audio story, as he tracks radio-tagged Kenai king salmon by boat and airplane, and listens for signals from live salmon—three beeps—and from salmon that have spawned and died—five beeps. Listen to the story.
