NOAA Webinar: Giant Seabass, Kings of the Kelp Forest

June 1, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Ryan Freedman, NOAA’s Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary
Sponsored by: NOAA

With Ryan Freedman, NOAA’s Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary in Santa Barbara, CA Giant Seabass are a species of large fish that live in the cool waters off the coast of California. Thanks to government protections in California, this top predator of the kelp forest is beginning to return to the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary and NOAA is working with other groups to study them. Giant Seabass are unique because scientists believe they use sounds to communicate. NOAA is working to record these sounds in the wild and study how these fish move around Santa Barbara Island, a small offshore island in the sanctuary. The webinar will last about 45-60 minutes with moderated questions and answers throughout. This webinar will be recorded and posted afterward. (Grades 2-6 but all ages will enjoy)
