Anglers, teachers, nature lovers, and students have the opportunity to learn about salmon and steelhead on December 12 at the Michigan State University Extension office at 111 S. Main Street in Scottville, Mich. Underwater video from local streams and lakes will provide the backdrop for fun facts about fish and discussion of how they perceive their environment.

Dr. Dan O’Keefe of Michigan Sea Grant will lead the program and field questions including:

Why does this explosion of life end with the inevitable death of parent fish? Why do some tiny males mature early, even though this means that they will die young? Why don’t our Great Lakes salmon get as big as the giant king salmon of Alaska? These are some of the questions associated with these familiar, but enigmatic fish.
