2018 Alaska Fisheries Science Center Year In Review

Our research supports NOAA Fisheries’ stewardship mission to protect and provide sustainable use of Alaska living marine resources. In doing so, we help provide jobs, strong local economies, coastal resiliency, and food security for coastal and Alaska Native communities, and the nation. We study whales, seals, sea lions, fish, crabs, zooplankton, and ecosystems in the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, Chukchi Sea, and Beaufort Sea. Combined, these five marine ecosystems span nearly 1.5 million square miles, an area larger than the state of California. Sixty percent of U.S. seafood comes from these highly productive waters.
