Alaska Integrated Ecosystem Assessment

Sitka Alaska Clickable Conceptual model

Scientists from the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center have been working with fishermen in Sitka to understand the changes that they are witnessing in their marine ecosystems. These changes include shifts in target and non-target species, predator-prey dynamics, oceanographic and environmental factors, hatchery production, and ultimately fisheries earnings and participation. This graphic represents a summary of those changes and the latest scientific information that is available for them. The intent of this effort is to create a living document of marine ecosystem change for Sitka where scientists and community members can interface about local ecological knowledge and scientific information. Please provide any input on the graphic, content, and any additional information here.
