Joint Funding Opportunities in Existing Marine Fish Studies (AK-10-09, AK-10-09b)

More information about fishes in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas is needed because marine fish fill an essential role in the Arctic ecosystem by consuming small prey and themselves providing a food resource for larger fishes, birds, marine mammals, and people. The Chukchi and Beaufort Seas are outside the range of the NOAA Alaska Fishery Science Center regular fish trawl surveys, subsistence and commercial fisheries are presently limited to very near shore (within 3 nmi), and the logistical effort and cost of offshore fishery investigations can be prohibitive. Often there are existing research venues that collect important fish data and specimens. To address this information need for arctic fishes, this project will build off other recently established (and ongoing) at-sea survey programs that will collect distribution data on key fish species (demersal and pelagic) via partnership and collaboration among the NOAAFisheries, the Alaska Monitoring and Assessment Program (AKMAP) from the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC), U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), the Russian- American Long-term Census of the Arctic (RUSALCA), and other vessel-based programs both inshore and offshore of lease areas.
