Results from the eastern Gulf of Alaska ecosystem assessment, July through August 2016

Abstract

The goal of the Gulf of Alaska Ecosystem Assessment is to characterize ecosystem function and status in the eastern Gulf of Alaska. This survey is a coordinated research effort, conducted by the Recruitment Processes Alliance within the Alaska Fisheries Science Center. The scientific objectives of the survey are to assess age-0 groundfish, juvenile salmon, zooplankton, and oceanographic conditions in the coastal, shelf, slope, and offshore waters of the eastern GOA. This information is used to describe species distributions, ecosystem processes, marine productivity, and recruitment processes in response to changes in climate patterns and temperature anomalies (i.e., “The Blob”, and El Niño).
