Roundtable on National Marine Sanctuary nominations set for April 6

A roundtable discussion on two nominations for National Marine Sanctuaries in Alaska, hosted by NOAA Fisheries, will be held virtually and in person at the Hilton Anchorage on April 6.

The two nominees, both in the Pribilof islands, are St. George Unangan Heritage and Alagum Kanuux (Heart of the Ocean).
