Event Description

Labside Chats -- A Conversation with a Scientist featuring Katie Kobayashi

Tune in for the Seymour Center’s next Labside Chat on Thursday, April 8th at 11:00am (PDT) with Katie Kobayashi, Ph.D. Candidate in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department at UC Santa Cruz and Graduate Student Researcher with the Fisheries Collaborative Program. Discover the differences between a Steelhead and a Rainbow Trout, and what it means for the ecology and conservation of California’s Coastal Watersheds.

Join the conversation! Submit your questions in advance for Katie and then watch the conversation to hear the answers during the live chat.

Help us put together questions such as:
• What is the difference between Steelhead and Rainbow Trout?
• How does a “Keystone Gene” shape migration, feeding behavior, physiology, and ecological interactions?
• How did the CZU fire impact our local watersheds?
• Why is scientific communication so important, and how can it inspire others to become stewards of the natural world?

To submit your questions in advance for Katie and to watch the live conversation, please visit: calendar.ucsc.edu/event/labside_chats_katie_kobayashi


DATE: Thursday, April 8th
TIME: 11:00am (PST/PDT unless otherwise noted)
DETAILS: Online & livestreamed on the Seymour Center’s Website and YouTube channel. Recommended for Ages 10 and Older.

This Labside Chat is sponsored by the UCSC Fisheries Collaborative Program in partnership with the NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center.

The Fisheries Collaborative Program (FCP) at UC Santa Cruz is dedicated to advancing the science of fisheries ecology, fisheries resource management, and environmental research as related to marine and freshwater species and their habitats. As the largest organized research unit within the Institute of Marine Sciences (IMS), FCP is home to more than 140 researchers. FCP fosters collaborations between scientists at the NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center, and faculty, researchers, and graduate students at UC Santa Cruz.


Labside Chats are for everyone interested in Science.

Join the Seymour Center on the second and fourth Thursday of every month (except holidays) for a Live Q&A Discussion with a Marine Scientist who provides insight into the wonderful, curious, and sometimes bizarre world of scientific discovery!
