Skates of Alaska have arrived!
April 27, 2015

The Skates of Alaska exhibit is now open at the Alaska SeaLife Center. This new tank in Underwater Viewing currently features a beautiful Bering Skate, while a small Alaska skate can be found in the microhabitat tank around the corner. These skates arrive just in time to complement our 2015 Summer of Sharks -- especially when you consider that skates could be described as sharks' "flatter" cousins! 

Come learn more about why researchers are studying skate nurseries in Alaska, and discover how researchers at the Alaska SeaLife Center contributed to a greater understanding of development time in skate embryos.
