Scientists at work tagging and tracking fish recolonizing the Elwha are featured in a new short film released by NOAA Fisheries.
George Pess and other fisheries experts from NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center and the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe are filmed in their work monitoring the recovery of the Elwha River, and tracking the first returning fish.
A wild steelhead returns to the Little River, a tributary of the Elwha. To see how the fish are captured and tagged, see a new film documenting scientists at work in the Elwha just released by NOAA Fisheries.
