Friday, March 9th 6:00-9:00pm at AK Islands & Ocean Visitor Center Auditorium

Keynote presentation by Anne Salomon & Nick Tanape: “Human-Ocean Ecosystems: Balancing the Needs of People and Nature”
A pressing need exists to advance our understanding of how humans alter, benefit from and adapt to  the changing productivity, biodiversity and resilience of coastal ocean ecosystems. This requires interdisciplinary efforts that integrate knowledge systems across space and time. As evidence, Anne will draw on key features and commonalities from three case studies: shellfish declines on the Kenai peninsula, Pacific herring fluctuations along British Columbia`s Central Coast, and ancient clam gardens in the Pacific Northwest. Poster session, reception, and book signing (Imam Cimiucia: Our Changing Sea) from 6-7pm.
