CONSERVATION & MANAGEMENT OF NORTH PACIFIC ROCKFISHES

AMCC collaborated with Ecotrust to analyze catch and biological data on rockfish in the Bering Sea and the Aleutian Islands to see if there are ways to refine spatial management to reduce the risk of overfishing. Printed in 2005.

ACCESS RESTRICTIONS IN ALASKA'S COMMERCIAL FISHERIES

The cumulative effect of limited access fisheries management decisions in Alaska has socio-economic consequences for our communities that are observable, predictable, and self-perpetuating.

BOTTOM TRAWLING IN THE NORTH PACIFIC

Studies of bottom trawl impacts in Alaska confirm worldwide studies that show that trawling alters complex habitat features such as coral gardens, sponges, rocky ledges, and pinnacles and by so doing can reduce fish populations and biodiversity. Printed in 2002.

A Legacy Story: Protecting the Bering Sea and Bristol Bay from Offshore Oil and Gas Development chronicles the long struggle over decisions about opening Bristol Bay and the southeast Bering Sea to offshore oil and gas drilling. Since the 1970s, people dependent on the region’s rich marine resources have been undaunted in an effort to protect these waters. On December 16, 2014, President Obama announced that the region would be permanently withdrawn from consideration for oil and gas leasing. The federal government agreed that the priority should be placed on sustaining traditional ways of life and the high-value commercial fisheries in the region and that offshore drilling presented risks that were not worth taking.

The story is told from the perspective of those on the front lines – leaders in the region and the seafood industry, past governors, and former Interior Department secretaries. By documenting this story, future generations will remember the history, value the enduring effort made to permanently set Bristol Bay and the southeast Bering Sea aside from oil and gas leasing, and be supported in safeguarding the region into the future.

Faces of Climate Change is a series of three short videos in which scientists and Alaska Natives share their stories and insights into changes that are happening in Alaska’s Bering Sea and Arctic Ocean. AMCC produced these videos in collaboration with Alaska Sea Grant, Alaska Observing System, and COSEE Alaska.
