Trophic Links: Forage Fish, Their Prey, and Ice Seals in the Northeast Chukchi Sea (AK-08-12-05)

This study will provide BOEM NEPA analysts with sorely needed basic diet information for both fish and seals in the Chukchi Sea. Because of the close association of the three trophic levels, it will greatly increase understanding of the ecological connections between invertebrates, fish, and seals and also provide measures of natural variability across a series of years that include both warm and cold ocean temperatures. This information is needed to meet Essential Fish Habitat and Marine Mammal Protection Act and NEPA requirements in the EISs for the 2010 and 2012 Chukchi Lease Sales.
