Six graduate students from the University of Fairbanks School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences will be at the Alaska State Museum on Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to noon to present stories of their research in fisheries and marine biology, from Southeast Alaska to the Arctic. There is no admission fee for this presentation.
“How to Make a Black Cod Lose its Lunch” will feature presentations and a panel discussion with the students, who are investigating Alaska’s diversity of marine life and the coastal communities that depend on healthy ocean ecosystems. The series of short talks will highlight a cross section of current research at the UAF Fisheries Center in Juneau, from the use of innovative technologies and local knowledge to understand the history of humpback whales in Juneau, to population genetics of saffron cod in the rapidly changing Arctic Ocean.
Refreshments will be served compliments of the UAF School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences.
Winter hours at the Alaska State Museum are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
