    Come hear a great program and learn what the WSC is doing to help wild steelhead!

    Speaker: Todd R. Seamons, School of Aquatic and
    Fishery Sciences, University of Washington

    Time: 7:30 PM

    Place: UW Horticulture Center

    Title: On steelhead repeat spawning, mature male parr and hybridization with cutthroat: Lessons from DNA analysis II

    Description: This presentation will focus on three interesting and important biological characteristics of steelhead populations: (1) the lifetime reproductive success of repeat-spawners vs. one time-spawners; (2) the reproductive success of non- or pre-anadromous males; and (3) natural hybridization with cutthroat trout.

    Biography: Todd Seamons is a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Washington School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences and is currently investigating genetic interactions between wild and hatchery steelhead. His recently completed
    dissertation research was focused on the reproductive biology and reproductive success of wild steelhead.
    When he’s not sampling steelhead for research, he can be found ‘sampling’ steelhead for pleasure in his favorite local river, the River Nunya.
