Making Waves is the podcast of the Society for Freshwater Science
Episode 8: Conflicting Interests in Bristol Bay, AK: Mining vs. Salmon
This month's podcast features Carol Ann Woody discussing conflicting interests between mining and salmon in Alaska.
Carol Ann Woody is owner and Director at Fisheries Research & Consulting, based in Anchorage, AK. Since 2006 she has led and directed a full-time science and education program focused on risks to fisheries from development of the massive Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay Alaska - home to the world’s largest all-wild sockeye salmon runs. Her research in mine leases has demonstrated the ubiquitous distribution of salmon, the toxic nature of mine effluents, the link between spawning salmon and groundwater as well as threats to water from mine pollution. She earned her PhD from the University of Washington and served 18 years as a federal fisheries scientist (USGS, US Forest Service, US Peace Corps) before starting her consulting firm.
