This special exhibit combines
Kodiak Maritime Museum’s When Crab Was King: Faces of the Kodiak King Crab Fishery 1950-1982, with stories of the king crab fishery in Kachemak Bay.
When Crab Was King: Faces of the Kodiak King Crab Fishery 1950-1982 features portraits of 24 individuals that experienced the boom years of the Kodiak King Crab fishery, as well as oral histories presenting each of their stories. In the Pratt Museum’s presentation, you’ll also be able to view historic films, hear stories from local fishermen, learn about the biology of the local fishery and recent efforts to re-establish king crab, and inspect a live brood of juvenile crabs in our own saltwater tank.
This exhibit is supported in part by Kodiak Maritime Museum with support from Alaska Humanities Forum, Alaska Sta
