Alaska Arctic Marine Fish Ecology Catalog (Archived)

Archive Message:

This synthesis presents a comprehensive evaluation of the marine fish fauna from both the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas in a single reference. Although many unknowns and uncertainties remain in the scientific understanding, information presented in this document is foundational with respect to understanding marine ecosystems and addressing dual missions of the U.S. Department of the Interior for energy development and resource conservation.

This publication provides analysts and others with a single, authoritative scientific reference about the biology and ecology of marine fishes in the United States Chukchi and Beaufort Seas. Biodiversity is broadly assessed with respect to current understanding of (1) classification and taxonomy, (2) abundance and geographic distribution, and (3) life history and population ecology. A focus of this study has been on new information and discoveries about this fauna since the publication of Fishes of Alaska (Mecklenburg and others, 2002). As such, the species checklist, geographic distribution maps, and depth profiles represent new biodiversity products to science. This synthesis is unique because it is based on confirmed species occurrences in United States sectors of the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas.
