The crab-tivating life of crustaceans: diving into Alaskan snow crab and red king crab biology

October 13, 2020

Erin Fedewa and Leah Zacher, NOAA Fisheries Alaska Fisheries Science Center’s Kodiak Laboratory in Kodiak, AK

Join us as we learn about red king crab and snow crab, two species of crab found in Alaskan waters. Guest appearances from live crab at the Kodiak Fisheries Research Center and a virtual dissection will help us explore crab biology and life stages. This webinar will be recorded and posted here (with English captions) after going live. (Grades 2-8 but all ages will enjoy)
