Alaska Fisheries Science Center's Kodiak Laboratory 2020 In Review Report
Approximately 12,000 to 15,000 people visit the Alaska Fisheries Science Center’s Kodiak Laboratory each year. The Laboratory is located in the Kodiak Fisheries Research Center owned by the Kodiak Island Borough.
The Alaska Fisheries Science Center was able to accomplish a lot in FY 2020 despite the need to cancel some important field research and fish, crab and marine mammal surveys due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It was a year of perseverance, creative thinking, and flexibility.
Our scientists took major steps to adjust the way we do business, protecting staff, communities and research partners while delivering critical science to support resource management and conservation efforts in FY20-21.
