2021 Alaska Fisheries Science Center Field Season

A look at survey and research activities planned for this year.

Over the next several months the Alaska Fisheries Science Center will be conducting research activities, and vessel-based and aerial surveys. We do this to collect data and information to support marine resource management and conservation to meet our federal mandate under guiding U.S. laws. These laws include the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, the Marine Mammal Protection Act and the U.S. Endangered Species Act, among others. 

All of these activities are being conducted under strict operational protocols keeping our staff, research partners and local communities safe from the spread of COVID-19.   

Information about each planned survey this year will be added to this page throughout the year.
