Spatial and Temporal Mapping of Nearshore Juvenile Fish and Settling Crab in the North Aleutian Basin (AK-08-08)

US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) - Information on seasonal distribution, abundance, and habitat use are necessary to assess oil-spill risks to sensitive lifestages of fish and crab for North Aleutian Basin NEPA analyses. The information from this study will be used for pre- and post-sale NEPA/EIS analysis and documentation, and by MMS analysts for mitigation of potential effects of OCS exploration and development in the NAB.

Characterization and spatial modeling of Pacific sand lance (Ammodytes hexapterus) habitats off Southeast Alaska

North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) - Forage fishes transfer energy between lower and upper trophic les and between benthic and pelagic food webs. Distribution and abundance patterns of forage fishes can therefore have profound effects on ecosystem processes. The Pacific Sand Lance (PS Ammodytes hexapterus) is an important forage species throughout Alaskan waters, yet its patterns of occurrence are poorly understood. We seek to...

Resource use, movements, and changes in diet of grizzly bears in the Arctic NWR

US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) - Grizzly bears in arctic Alaska are living at the edge of their range and are an important component of predator-prey systems. We are using GSP/satellite collars on grizzly bears to detect predation events and to monitor resource use and movements. We are using stable isotope analysis on samples from bears and prey species to detect possible shifts in diet during the past 33 years and to compare...
