The poster describes how a marine invasive species monitoring station was established with the Alaska Native community of St. Paul on St. Paul Island in conjunction with marine invasive species lessons during a K-12 educational event, Bering Sea Days. Lessons included an invading invasive species tag game, invertebrate species collection and identification from the harbor where monitoring is occurring, ballast water forensics game and Arctic Council ballast water negotiation simulation. Results of monitoring will be shared with databases connected to data mobilization delivery platforms.
The poster supports the following Arctic Biodiversity Assessment recommendations and implementation actions.
