Enhancing the sustainable use and conservation of Alaska's marine and freshwater resources through research, outreach, and education


We are charged by Congress to conduct scientific research that enhances the wise use and conservation of our coastal and marine resources.

Our outreach and technical assistance programs help Alaskans wisely use, conserve, and enjoy Alaska's marine and coastal resources.


Resources and professional development for K–12 educators. Public education and training in coastal communities. College student awards and fellowships.

Our colleagues @NOAAFisheriesAK are looking at how fishing impacts the deep-sea coral and sponge habitat in order to come up with ideas for better ways to fish while not damaging the habitat. https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/science-blog/joint-canada-us-deep-sea-coral-seamount-survey-post-2
