Professor Joel Markis Leads Lab Courses in Ketchikan and Kodiak

Last month, Professor Joel Markis visited Ketchikan and Kodiak to teach two distance laboratory sessions of FT 111 Fisheries Management Techniques. Students had the opportunity to put theory to practice in freshwater and saltwater settings. Distance labs allow Fish Tech students to participate in hands-on training to complete their degree, while still taking lecture courses through iPad or online options in remote locations.


Students examine young of the year fish along the river.


Water chemistry measurements such as pH and salinity largely dictate which species can persist in a body of water.


The best place to learn about fish is in the field!

Student reflections:

“I enjoyed the diverse content and applying it locally.” 

“The instructor was great and there was plenty of lab support!”
