Alaska Ocean Acidification Network
Jennifer Newby is a fisheries biologist for NOAA’s Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Kodiak who is working on crab response to ocean acidification through the Shellfish Assessment Program.
Q: How did you get into the ocean acidification field?
A: While I’d heard about ocean acidification (OA) from colleagues working on Caribbean coral reef systems, I didn’t dive into the world of OA myself until I traveled north to Alaska. I worked briefly as an Onboard Oceanography Coordinator out of Homer, and while teaching all ages of students about the role of OA in coastal communities and the projected effects on planktonic marine life, I started to better understand the implications — not just for the marine species, but for Alaskan livelihoods and the local economy as well.
