NOAA Live! Alaska: How Old Is That Fish? And What Fish Ear Stones Can Tell Us
Interactive webinar connecting NOAA Fisheries scientists and partners with Alaska students, teachers and local communities.
March 9, 2021 - How Old Is That Fish? And What Fish Ear Stones Can Tell Us
Tuesday, March 9, 2021 - 11:00 am Alaska time
Craig Kastelle, NOAA Fisheries' Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, WA
What is a fish ear stone, called an otolith, and what can we learn from them? Join us to see how we find out a fish’s age and what other information scientists get about oceans and fish, all from their tiny otoliths.

(The webinar will also be live streamed via 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.
