Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) Fellow Ashley Bagley has been selected for the the 2019-2020 Washington Sea Grant (WSG) State Fellowship (formerly the Marc Hershman Marine Policy Fellowship). The WSG State Fellowship offers a unique opportunity for soon-to-graduate or recently graduated students engaged in studies pertaining to ocean and coastal policy issues. This one-year fellowship places highly motivated and qualified individuals with marine and coastal host offices throughout Washington, providing fellows with a unique perspective on building marine policy and allowing them to share their academic expertise with the host offices.
“As a WSG State Fellow with Long Live the Kings, Ashley will work on the Salish Sea Marine Survival Project which is focused on determining why certain species of juvenile salmon and steelhead are dying as they migrate through the Salish Sea. Ashley’s main goals are to communicate findings, incorporate results and tools into management decisions as appropriate, and plan and implement research to address research gaps and to test solutions. Ashley is excited to branch out beyond freshwater to support salmon recovery efforts in the Salish Sea.” – Washington Sea Grant
