2013 Arctic Science Conference

The 2013 Arctic Science Conference will be held September 26th–28th in Kodiak, Alaska. The conference theme is Fisheries and Watersheds: Food Security, Education and Sustainability.

Future concerns about Alaska’s marine resources, particularly the fisheries, revolve around the status of research and education and our ability to wisely utilize this cornucopia. The 2013 Arctic Science Conference will feature a variety of sessions focusing on marine science, sustainability, circumpolar health, and interdisciplinary education.

Information about the planned conference agenda can be found on the conference overview page.
