Nearshore Fish Atlas
Shallow, nearshore waters are some of the most productive habitats in Alaska and the most vulnerable to human disturbance. Using a beach seine as our sampling method, we have documented more than 100 fish species in a variety of nearshore habitats in an effort to identify essential fish habitat.
- Provides a quick reference for identifying species in areas designated for development or impacted by human disturbance (e.g., oil spill).
- Allows resource managers to track long-term and large-scale changes in fish distribution and habitat use that may result from global climate change.
- Helps resource managers prepare biological opinions and identify habitats essential to different life stages of commercially important and forage fish species.
