At the UAF School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, we challenge our students to explore academically, geographically and culturally. We are a community of scholars that provide opportunities for students to learn and conduct research in some of the most beautiful and pristine locations in the world.
SFOS master’s student Mark Nelson traces his love of nature and wildlife back to his childhood, and the many wonderful summers spent fishing and camping with his family.
Now a wildlife technician with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Mark says that even as a youngster in Montana he wanted a career in the field.
