The High Seas Salmon Research Program is a long-term (1953-present) research program at the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences (SAFS), University of Washington. Throughout our history, the faculty, staff, and students of the High Seas Salmon Research Program have carried out scientific investigations on the abundance, distribution, migration patterns, stock origins, life history, and ecology of Pacific salmon and steelhead (Oncorhynchus spp.) in the North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea. The results of our work are used by many agencies, organizations, and individuals to address issues of concern related to marine research, conservation, and management of salmon and steelhead.

The High Seas Salmon Research Program is dedicated to providing professional and public service at local, regional, state, national, and international levels. Our mission is to continue this unique long-term research program, address current research problems, and identify emerging issues of concern. We promote and benefit from collaboration with other people, and our work could not be done without the provision of data, samples, ship time, and many other cooperative activities with our partners in other agencies and organizations. The High Seas Salmon Research Program is funded entirely by external grants and contracts, and we gratefully acknowledge our current funding agencies and organizations for their support.
