Kodiak holds marine water quality workshop for OA and HABS

A Marine Water Quality Workshop was held in Kodiak Dec 10-11, hosted by the Kodiak Area Native Association (KANA). Currently, three communities in the Kodiak area (Larsen Bay, Old Harbor, and Ouzinkie) are conducting weekly monitoring for ocean acidification and harmful algal blooms (HABS), and the goal of the workshop was to discuss these issues and train new participants on sample collection.

Organizations involved included NOAA, UAF, Sitka’s Southeast Alaska Tribal Ocean Research (SEATOR), KANA, and Environmental Coordinators and leaders from six federally-recognized tribes on Kodiak.

The workshop was funded by EPA’s Indian General Assistance Program and Bureau of Indian Affairs – Tribal Resilience Program.
