Scientists Meet with Local Alaska Communities

During the week of May 20, National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) scientists met with a wide variety of Alaska native organizations to give presentations on marine life and environmental contamination to the K-12 school in Nanwalek, and later accompanied the students on a field trip. NCCOS scientists also met with John Davenport of the Alutiiq Pride Shellfish Hatchery in Seward, to establish a collaborative relationship that will benefit the Mussel Watch Project and provide Mr. Davenport with practicum experience for which he will receive college credit through the University of Alaska Fairbanks. NCCOS scientists also met with counterparts from the Alaska Sea Life Center, and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, and gave a presentation to Alaskan Natives taking a water quality recertification course at the University of Alaska Fairbanks
