Exploring Linkages in the Marine Ecosystem

Please join 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, and the impacts of changing conditions.


April 4, 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 5, 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.
