NOAA Live! Alaska: Salmon in Winter—Anadromous Fish Under Ice
Interactive webinar connecting NOAA Fisheries scientists and partners with Alaska students, teachers and local communities.
February 2, 2021—Salmon in the Winter: Anadromous Fish Under Ice
Coowe Walker and Jacob Argueta, NOAA's Kachemak Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Kachemak Bay, Alaska
What do you know about baby salmon? Learn about where salmon spend their early life stages and how they survive in Alaskan watersheds blanketed with snow and ice. We will talk about the importance of groundwater on baby salmon survival and how watersheds and estuaries are nurseries that prepare salmon to hit the high seas.

(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.
