Jeanette C. Gann


Jeanette Gann is an oceanographer with the Ecosystem Monitoring and Assessment (EMA) program. She participates in at-sea surveys throughout Alaska, where she focuses on phytoplankton community composition and Harmful algal bloom (HAB) species in the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska. She is also investigating nutritional qualities of varying phytoplankton communities, how this relates to young fish in general, and age-0 Walleye Pollock in particular. Part of her current work involves maintenance and deployment of an imaging flow cytobot (IFCB), that can be deployed aboard ship and monitor species composition continuously while underway, via a flow through system. Additionally, Jeanette is a member of PICES (North Pacific Marine Science Organization) where she currently serves as chair of the Technical Committee on Data Exchange (TCODE), and vice-chair of the science board. She has also recently joined the UN Ocean Decade Data Coordination Group (DCG).
