The first issue of Oncorhynchus, the Alaska chapter newsletter, was published in April 1981; 3 issues came out that year. Thereafter, 4 issues appeared annually without fail. Issue 1 (Winter) summarizes the annual meeting held late the previous year; 2 (Spring) and 3(Summer) cover a wide variety of matters, including initial coverage of the next annual meeting; and 4 (Fall) provides program details for the upcoming meeting. Beginning in 2017 the annual meeting was held in the spring, therefore Issue 2 or 3 provide the meeting summary.
