Paralytic Shellfish Monitoring
KANA is assisting Tribal partners with a grant-funded research project monitoring poisonous toxins in Kodiak's ocean waters. Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP) is caused by eating shellfish contaminated with naturally-occurring toxins that can be lethal to humans.
Southeast Alaska Tribal Ocean Research
The Southeast Alaska Tribal Ocean Research partnership (SEATOR) was formed by the Sitka Tribe of Alaska in 2013 as a network of tribal governments, universities, and nonprofits to monitor harmful algae blooms in the state. KANA and Sun'aq Tribe of Kodiak have partnered with Sitka Tribe of Alaska to test harvested shellfish samples from Kodiak waters.
