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

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - 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...

Distribution, Abundance, and Habitat Use of North Pacific Right Whales (AK-07-x13)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - The eastern population of the North Pacific right whale (Eubalaena japonica) is arguably the rarest stock of whales anywhere in the world. Right whales throughout the North Pacific were drastically reduced by commercial whaling beginning in 1835, and the remnant eastern population was almost wiped out by illegal Soviet catches in the 1960's. Today, the surviving population likely numbers...

Subsistence Bowhead Whaling Near Cross Island

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - This muti-year study will monitor impacts to subsistence whaling activities in the vicinity of Cross Island that may be associated with oil production. It will obtain baseline and trend data on whale hunting activities in the Cross Island area. The study will help assess if development activities result in changes to bowhead whale subsistence hunting practices, or to hunting success at Cross...
