Erin Peterson


I grew up in Bellevue, WA. I love the outdoors and when I was at Oregon State I discovered my interest in fishes. Since then I have held fisheries jobs in both state agencies and research. During my Master's I worked on an inventory of aquatic invertebrates in western South Dakota. My hobbies include reading, writing, running, hiking, and music.

Research Interests

Upstream movements of adult migratory fishes on the Penobscot River, specifically Atlantic salmon, American shad, and river herring.
