Opening Reception Friday, November 8, from 5 to 7 pm

Special Exhibits Gallery - November 8 through December 30

This special exhibit combines the Kodiak Maritime Museum's exhibit, When Crab Was King: Faces of the Kodiak King Crab Fishery 1950-1982, with stories of the commercial king crab fishery in Kachemak Bay. The Kodiak exhibit features portraits of 24 individuals who fished during the boom years of the Kodiak King Crab fishery, with oral histories presenting each of their stories. In the Pratt Museum's presentation, you'll also view historic films, hear stories from local fishermen; learn about the biology of the crab fishery and recent efforts to re-establish king crab in local waters.  In conjunction with the Crab exhibit, there will also be two special events during December: Bring your stories and perspectives on Thursday, December 5, from 5-7 pm for a Community Conversation on Crab Fisheries of Kachemak Bay and on December 19 at 5pm, the Pratt will host the presentation, A Crabby Colloquium: Recent Research and Fishery Management Perspectives, featuring Megan Murphy and representatives from the Alaska De­partment of Fish & Game.
