Do you want to eat salmon and crackers and further the cause of science?

More than 200 volunteers who like to eat fish are needed for canned salmon taste tests Oct. 13-17 at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Wood Center. Participants will be asked to rate the salmon's appearance, taste and texture on tests conducted by the UAF Fishery Industrial Technology Center in Kodiak with the assistance of UAF Cooperative Extension Service.

Sampling will run from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. each day in Wood Center Conference Rooms C & D. The taste test will take 10-15 minutes and cookies will be provided afterward. Participants must be at least 18.
