Arctic marine mammal disaster response guidelines : National Marine Fisheries Service guidance report.Sadie K. Wright, Sarah Margaret Wilkin, Aleria S. Jensen & Teresa K. Rowles
The coastline of Alaska and its offshore areas provide seasonal feeding, breeding, and migratory habitat for large numbers of marine mammals. In some cases, the major portion of the world's population of a particular species may be present. Moreover, these species include important subsistence resources for Alaska Native communities. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) manages whales and most seals. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) manages Pacific walruses, northern sea otters, and polar...
Alternative sampling designs for the 2018 Annual Deployment Plan of the North Pacific Observer ProgramJane Y. Sullivan &
Changes in regulation enacted in 2013 have enabled the Alaska Fisheries Science Center’s Fishery Monitoring and Analysis Division (FMA) and the Alaska Regional Office’s Sustainable Fisheries Division to work collaboratively on an Annual Deployment Plan (ADP). Each ADP documents how the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) plans to deploy observers into fishing activities for the coming year under the limits of available funding. Draft ADPs are presented to the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council)...

Summary report from the First Annual Collaborative Climate Science Workshop, 19-21 September 2017, NOAA's Inouye Regional Center, Honolulu, HawaiiPhoebe Woodworth-Jefcoats
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA's) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has enacted a climate science strategy as part of its proactive approach to better track, forecast, and incorporate information on changing climate conditions into living marine resource management. This strategy is being implemented through customized 5-year Regional Action Plans for climate science (RAPs). These RAPs detail regional climate science needs and specific action items to address them. The drivers and impacts of climate...
As part of the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) jurisdictional priority gathering, local agencies in Guam identified Cocos Lagoon as an area potentially impacted by land-based sources of pollution. The US Coast Guard operated a Long Range Navigation (LORAN) station on Cocos Island at the southern end of Cocos Lagoon from 1944 to 1963. Disposal of materials from the operation of the station are suspected of resulting in chemical contamination of the island and...
