NOAA Live! Alaska
Interactive webinar connecting NOAA Fisheries scientists and partners with Alaska students, teachers and local communities.
The Crab-tivating life of crustaceans: diving into Alaskan snow crab and red king crab biology
Erin Fedewa and Leah Zacher, NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Kodiak, AK
Join us as we learn about red king crab and snow crab, two species of crab found in Alaskan waters. Guest appearances from live crab at the Kodiak Fisheries Research Center and a virtual dissection will help us explore crab biology and life stages.
The webinar will also be live streamed on Facebook Live on the NOAA Fisheries Alaska Facebook page (@NOAAFisheriesAK).
NOAA Live! Alaska is a weekly series of interactive webinars, aimed at Alaska students in grades 2-8 (but of interest to all ages!). We will feature NOAA scientists, educators and partners to explore NOAA’s work in Alaska. Learn about current research. Connect to what’s going on in your communities. Join us to ask questions to our presenters and learn more about weather, oceanography, marine life, fisheries and more in Alaska!
NOAA Live! Alaska is coordinated by NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center, NOAA's Alaska Regional Collaboration Network, and the National Weather Service. The series is modeled on the NOAA Live! webinars coordinated by Woods Hole Sea Grant and the NOAA Regional Collaboration Network. Contact Lisa.Hiruki-Raring@noaa.gov with any questions.
