Alaska Fisheries Science Center's Marine Mammal Laboratory 2020 In Review report

March 16, 2021

The Marine Mammal Laboratory, a division of the Alaska Fisheries Science Center, conducts research on whales, seals, sea lions, and porpoises off the coasts of Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and California.

The Alaska Fisheries Science Center was able to accomplish a lot in FY 2020 despite the need to cancel some important field research and fish, crab and marine mammal surveys due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

It was a year of perseverance, creative thinking, and flexibility. 

Our scientists took major steps to adjust the way we do business, protecting staff, communities and research partners while delivering critical science to support resource management and conservation efforts in FY20-21.
