April 12, 2022 - Zooplankton: Tales from the Bottom of the Food Web
Tuesday, April 12, 2022 - 1:00 pm Alaska time
David G. Kimmel, NOAA Fisheries Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, WA
Join us to learn about zooplankton, the small, but mighty creatures at the bottom of the marine food web. We will explore the different types of zooplankton, their importance in the environment, how we collect and study them, and how we use zooplankton information to help sustainably manage Alaska’s marine ecosystems.
The webinar will last about 60 minutes with moderated questions and answers throughout. This webinar will be recorded and posted afterward with captions. (Grades 2-8 but all ages will enjoy).
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.
