Kachemak Currents is a natural history program produced by the Center for Alaska Coastal Studies. The program covers a wide variety of subjects, all sharing the common theme of "the natural history of the Kachemak Bay area."
Kachemak Bay's abundant Sea Jellies play a key role in the food web
The important role alder play in salmon habitat

The Bar-Tailed Godwit stops in Kachemak Bay on its migration north from New Zealand to the Yukon Delta. The return journey, from Western Alaska to New Zealand, is the longest non-stop migration of any animal.
