In this photo taken in July 2009, Mike Treston, a research technician with the US Department of Agriculture's ARS project at the Fishery Industrial Technology Center in Kodiak, Alaska, uses a machine to grind salmon livers that can be dried and turned into salmon liver meal. For more than a decade, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has been looking into better ways to use fish heads, skin, guts and bones. But their days in the state that catches more wild fish than any other may be numbered. Alaska's only agricultural research station is on the chopping block, one of ten slated for closure by Sept. 1 as the Obama administration looks to cut $42 million from the USDA's Agricultural Research Service budget.
