CATCH MORE TUNA WITH NVS!

Presented by Alex Mitchell-Morton and NANOOS

Forecast information & data at your fingertips

Alex is a research scientist with the University of Washington’s Applied Physics Lab.

He grew up angling for bass and panfish in the Midwest before he came out to Seattle to study fisheries and oceanography on a larger scale. Alex will be demonstrating the free NVS TunaFishers app from the Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS). Developed through conversations with anglers, the app provides forecasts for conditions relevant to finding and catching tuna, including SST, chlorophyll, and thermocline depths, as well as satellite data to help you find tuna efficiently.

The NANOOS Visualization System (NVS) is a data portal where users can access real-time atmospheric and hydrographic data from the region. It is the regional association of the national Ocean Observing System (IOOS) in the Pacific Northwest. Booth #28

OCEAN SALMON CATCHING IN THE TOUGH YEARS

Presented by Larry Warren

If you’re a beginning angler or have ever found yourself frustrated after a day of ocean salmon fishing, this seminar will unveil techniques you can use to be more successful. Larry will focus on techniques and gear that consistently catch salmon … any salmon …on days when they aren’t jumping into the boat. Larry caught his first salmon at the age of five in 1980 and never looked back. He benefited from decades of family fishing experience passed on one lesson at a time. While he spends most of his time out of Newport these days, he can still be found crossing Depoe Bay and the Columbia River Bar from time to time. He is most often joined by his wife, Cicely and daughter, Cadence and looks forward to his son, Christian returning from the Air Force to rejoin the family in their recreational pursuit.
