On September 17, 2023, the Alaska SeaLife Center (ASLC), Chugach Regional Resources Commission’s (CRRC) Alutiiq Pride Marine Institute, the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) Seward Marine Center, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Ocean Exploration will host the 2023 Seward Marine Science Symposium. This free event, 10 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. AKDT, will be held at the university’s K.M. Rae Marine Education Building, 125 Third Avenue, Seward, Alaska.

Symposium attendees will learn about local marine science activities, including Indigenous-led science research and recent work on NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer to explore deep waters in the region, and how all of these activities impact the City of Seward, the Resurrection Bay area, Kenai Fjords National Park, and beyond. Additionally, participants will hear talks and view posters from local marine scientists on topics ranging from seabirds and fish to ocean monitoring and bats. Attendees of all ages can meet ocean scientists and explorers and contribute to a community art project.

Tours for symposium participants will be available at the UAF Seward Marine Center, the CRRC Alutiiq Pride Marine Institute, and research facilities at the Alaska SeaLife Center.

Space is limited for all activities on September 17. Registration information and the detailed event agenda are available on the event website:

On September 18, middle school and high school students and educators from the Kenai Peninsula have been invited to meet scientists and learn about exploration science and technology and associated careers, tour the UAF Seward Marine Center and the CRRC Alutiiq Pride Marine Institute, and add their talent to the local community mural art project.
