Overview:

The Anacortes Salmon Derby in concert with the Fidalgo - San Juan Island Chapter, Puget Sound Anglers is pleased to offer annual grant opportunities to qualifying college undergraduate and graduate students.


As a Pacific Northwest sport fishing organization, we support undergraduate or graduate research on recreationally important fish species or groups in order to maintain and protect our region’s resources for this and future generations of sportsmen. Our emphasis is on the ecology, recovery and management of west coast finfish, with particular attention to salmonids and other select marine species. We will be looking for students wishing to continue their education in fisheries, with an emphasis in fish management.
