Scientists at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center conduct research and assess populations of many species of sharks in Alaskan waters. Join us for a discussion of the different sharks found in Alaskan waters, some fantastic research partnerships and how we use research to conserve and manage the species into the future.
The webinar will last about 60 minutes with moderated questions and answers throughout and live American Sign Language interpretation. This webinar will be recorded and posted afterward with English captions and Spanish subtitles. (Grades 2-8 but all ages will enjoy).
NOAA Live! Alaska is a weekly series of interactive webinars, aimed at Alaska students in grades 2–8 (but of interest to all ages!).
