“The photo features a collage from all the different char species from Alaska…primarily Dolly Varden but a few Arctic Char and Lake Trout. Most of the photos are from Alaska’s National Wildlife Refuges – Kenai, Izembek, Arctic, Togiak and others in between. There’s an incredible amount of diversity in life histories and appearances given the large landscape and diversity of habitats available for use.”
