Welcome to Alaska Sea Grant — supporting wise use and conservation of Alaska's seas and coasts through research, education, and extension.
Alaska Sea Grant and the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center team up to teach volunteers how to look for invasive species in a bioblitz event held in Ketchikan.
Mammal-fishery interactions, the effects of climate change on sockeye salmon, and the feasibility of a directed skate fishery are among eight research projects in the queue for funding by Alaska Sea Grant.
There really is more to commercial fishing than just getting a boat and a permit, and catching fish! The Alaska Young Fishermen's Summit will be held in Anchorage, December 10–12; new fishermen are invited to learn about marine safety, running a successful business, and fisheries policy-making.
Alaska Sea Grant and the Alaska Ocean Observing System host a bimonthly one-hour conference call with Alaska participants interested in marine policy. The next call is January 15 at 1 pm Alaska Time. Join us to hear the latest about marine funding, legislation, and state and federal policy. Visit the AOOS website for contact information and notes from previous calls.
