Kodiak Fisheries Research Center Aquarium
Inside the Kodiak Fisheries Research Center, there is a large, oval, freestanding aquarium (it holds 3500
gallons!), and a touch tank that allows visitors to handle intertidal organisms representing the major marine
invertebrate phyla in the region.
Throughout the year, the foyer and aquarium area are open for public viewing, and is a major attraction for
school field trips. Kodiak Laboratory staff regularly collect a
variety of species from waters around Kodiak Island to display in the aquarium and touch tank areas.
Regional species that are routinely on display include varieties of crabs, mollusks (e.g., snails and bivalves),
echinoderms (e.g., seastars), and fish.
