[ARCHIVED] You're Invited: FISH Hosts Community Presentation

You're invited as Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (FISH) hosts a free community presentation.

Join Fritz Hasler for a FISH Talk about his father, University of Washington professor Arthur D. Hasler. Throughout his life, Arthur Hasler conducted research on salmon homing capabilities — including important research at the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery.

In 1950, he stuffed the noses of salmon to see if they used their sense of smell to find their way to the stream of their birth. The experiment at the Issaquah hatchery and a weir he built on the East Fork of Issaquah Creek were instrumental to Arthur Hasler's career.

The free event is at 2 p.m. Jan. 13, 2017, at the hatchery's Watershed Science Center, 125 W. Sunset Way.
