Every January in Anchorage, scientists, educators, resource managers, students, and the public come together at the Alaska Marine Science Symposium (AMSS) conference to discuss the latest marine research being conducted in Alaska waters. Join us to talk with Elizabeth Siddon from NOAA Fisheries Alaska Fisheries Science Center about her ecosystem research and education work, and Mark Van Arsdale, a high school teacher in Eagle River, Alaska, about his takeaways from the AMSS and how he brings the science back to his classroom.
