Presenting the AFSC 2016 Year in Review Video and Interactive Infographic
Our research supports NOAA Fisheries’ stewardship mission to ensure sustainable living marine resources and their habitats in the coastal oceans of Alaska for the economic and cultural benefit of the nation. This region of nearly 1.5 million square miles includes waters in the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, Chukchi Sea and Beaufort Sea. Together, these waters support some of the most important commercial fisheries in the world, large and diverse marine mammal populations and Alaska Native hunting and fishing communities that have endured for centuries.
