Kodiak Area Marine Science Symposium 2021

April 19April 23

Kodiak Area Marine Science Symposium

We are pleased to continue the Kodiak Area Marine Science Symposium (KAMSS) as a virtual event in 2021. Last year KAMSS was canceled due to COVID-19. This year we are happy to come together in April 2021 through our virtual event. KAMSS 2021 will be the 4th regional symposium that connects the Kodiak community to the marine science research around them.

Hosted by the Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program with support from regional partners and contributors, KAMSS provides a forum for researchers to share findings within the research community and to the general public. The symposium offers opportunity for stakeholders to engage and understand how Kodiak’s marine environment and resources function, change, and affect our lives and livelihoods and offers a venue for researchers to plan for integrated, cooperative and community-inspired marine research.

Patterned after the preceding symposiums, KAMSS 2021 oral and poster presentations will span a variety of marine science and related fields pertinent to our healthy coastal  community. Sessions will be organized thematically and delivered over the course of the week via Zoom. The sessions will be based on abstracts submitted for KAMSS 2020.

Details from previous KAMSS events, including links to the programs and abstracts, can be viewed by visiting KAMSS 2017.


Registration is free and open to the public.
