Come learn about the incredible migrations taken by juvenile salmon to reach the open ocean. This talk will focus on a pristine system in British Columbia where juvenile sockeye salmon pass through a gauntlet of predators early on their migration. The potential applications of research findings on Pacific salmon to species local to the Gulf of Maine will be discussed.
