Welcome to Alaska Sea Grant — supporting wise use and conservation of Alaska's seas and coasts through research, education, and extension.
Charter boat crew and sport fishermen are exploring new methods of handling halibut to increase survivability when they are released back into the ocean.
Thomas Farrugia, a graduate student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, will spend a year learning how the federal government makes national marine policy and manages marine resources.

The next call is September 24 at 1 pm Alaska Time. Join us to hear the latest about marine funding, legislation, and state and federal policy.
