2003 (English)Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
We will present an overview of the emerging use of underwater video in the fisheries profession and provide examples of how underwater video is being used to capture footage to be used in a variety of educational applications. We will also highlight a very successful Watchable Fish program at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center and discuss an ongoing project to produce an educational video on juvenile salmonids in Southeast Alaska. Our presentation will provide an overview of the equipment necessary to collect, display, and edit underwater video and will include representative clips of juvenile salmonids created using video editing software.
