Exploring Linkages in the Marine Ecosystem

Please join us for a workshop (hosted by  NOAA Fisheries' Alaska Fisheries Science Center and the University of Alaska Fairbanks) to discuss Sitka resident and local fisheries interactions, the ecology of the surrounding marine environment,

Schedule

April 4th 1-4pm: Part 1 Human Dimensions

The first component of this two-day workshop will focus on the linkages between local fisheries and Sitka residents’ social, economic, and ecological wellbeing. We will discuss how residents derive value from, make decisions about participation in, and respond to changing conditions (environmental, management, and other) that affect these fisheries.

April 5th 9am-12pm: Part 2 Ecological Connections

The second section of this workshop will seek consensus between scientists and the community of Sitka in the development of a single conceptual model for the ecology of the eastern Gulf of Alaska. We will identify and describe the main biological and environmental factors and linkages that drive some of the most relevant commercial, sport, and subsistence fisheries in Sitka.
