Salmon Monitoring Team Wins Environmental Business Journal Award

April 2005
Congratulations to ETD's Tom Carlson, Geoff McMichael, and Kenneth Ham along with researchers from the National Marine Fisheries Service on winning a Technology Merit Award from the Environmental Business Journal. The team received this prestigious honor for their sophisticated yet simple underwater acoustic system. The system allows them to understand the behavior and fate of migrating juvenile Chinook salmon as they pass through the Columbia River Basin. The data from the underwater acoustic system will be used to find new ways to increase the survival of salmon and to increase the efficiency of the hydropower system. Congratulations again, team!
