The Crab-tivating Life of Crustaceans: Where do they go? How do they grow? What do we know?

November 3, 2021

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

How much do you know about Alaskan crab? Join us as we learn to identify crustaceans found in Alaskan waters and talk about crab biology with live appearances from some “crabby” guests. We’ll even find out how to tag a red king crab and explore how researchers use these tags to study where crab live and how they move!
