Marine and Coastal

coastline at sunset

At 44,000 miles Alaska’s shoreline is more than double the length of the East and West coasts combined providing an abundance of habitats for marine life. Tide pools, eelgrass beds, kelp beds and mudflats support a vast assemblage of birds, invertebrates, forage fish and marine mammals. 50 million seabirds nest on the Alaskan coast each summer and more than 100 species of corals form cold water reefs that are comparable in size to better known tropical reefs.
