The Alaska Marine Science Symposium is going on all week at the Hotel Captain Cook in Anchorage.
It's a massive showcase on dozens of research topics related to the Gulf of Alaska, the Bering Sea and the Arctic Ocean.
Here's a program. Warning: It's long and involved. But well worth scanning for items of interest.
One presentation I'm hoping to catch:
"Climate change and fisher behavior in the Bering Sea pollock fishery," by Alan Haynie, an economist with the National Marine Fisheries Service, 4:45 p.m. Thursday.
