Invasive pike are chowing down on a once-thriving Alaskan chinook salmon fishery

A new study suggests invasive northern pike likely crashed a popular Alaskan king salmon fishery all on their own, and state fisheries agencies could have their work cut out for them to undo the damage. Overfishing, dams and climate change all challenge salmon runs along North America's Pacific coast, but the threat of Alaska's invasive pike remains largely unnoticed outside of the state.
