Film Festival: Fisheries and Hydrokinetic Engergy
February 11, 2021 @ 3:16 pm - 3:19 pm
Hydrokinetic energy devices are being tested in the Kvichak River near the Alaska community of Igiugig and at the Tanana. Learn now salmon interact with them. Alaska has approximately 90% of the total tidal energy and approximately 60% of the total wave energy in the U.S. The high cost of power in Alaska is spurring many communities to consider accessing these “hydrokinetic” energy resources to generate electric power. This video explores the effect on fisheries.
