Alex Frank is the newest member of the Peter Gray Parr Project team. Alex earned his Bachelor's Degree in Fisheries and Wildlife with a concentration in fisheries from Paul Smiths College in 2019. Alex worked with Project Share during the 2019 field season right here in Downeast Maine. There he assisted in salmon habitat rehabilitation along the Narraguagus River, to increasing spawning habitat for Atlantic salmon. He also assisted Ernie Atkinson, Marine Scientist II at the DMR Jonesboro office with electrofishing assessments of salmon habitat quality project. This consisted of electrofishing for young of the year salmon in the Machias, Narraguagus, and Pleasant River watersheds. With this data, they could determine the fry dispersal rates, or put another way, how far the young salmon had moved from the redd (nest). Alex has a passion for being outdoors, taking full advantage of what nature has to offer. He enjoys fishing, hunting, and hiking.
